*DELIVERY $65.00 delivery charge per load and up, depending on location of delivery. Dump truck can haul up to 12 cubic yards. Batch truck can haul up to 5 yards of two different materials (still just the one delivery charge). *Fill your own containers – 5 gallon buckets $3.00, Recycle bins/tubs $6.00, 30+ gallon Garbage can $12 Oil is being extracted from tar sands in Alberta, but at a steep environmental cost, critics say, because of the heavy need for water and heat needed to separate and process the bitumen. Everyone agrees that Utah's tar sands deposits are different, but there is sharp disagreement over
A cubic metre of oil, mined from the tar sands, needs two to 4.5 cubic metres of water. Approved oil sands mining operations -- not the in situ kind that extract oil from tar sands far below the surface -- will take twice the annual water needs of the City of Calgary.

It is predicted that with considerable investment, Canadian tar sands production might reach a couple million barrels per day within a decade. This means that an area the size of Florida will be totally deforested, strip mined, drained of clean water, and doused with toxic effluent to meet a small percentage of global oil demand for a couple of decades (at best).

Meanwhile, oil sands mines situate primary processing equipment at open pit mining sites to separate bituminous fluids from extracted soil, ready for further stages of processing. Whether the product is iron, coal, tar sand or other minerals, the location of processing equipment can be key to a
The bucket can carry 45 cubic yard of materials and can dig down to 170 feet. The 4,000,000 pound weight was somehow common for dragline excavator sizes of the time. It was originally made for Pyramid Coal Company's Rockport Surface Mine in Rockport, Kentucky in the 1980's.
The oil sands can be extracted in two ways: open-pit mining for oil sands located on or just below the surface, and in situ recovery for oil sands located underground. About 80 percent of the oil sands are located deeper then 70-80m below surface and some large proportion can be extracted but only via in situ techniques (Mawdsley et al. 2005).
2016/7/20Area mining can also be applied to lignite, tar sands, and phosphate. Advantages of open cast (strip) mining Highest productivity of any coal mining method Lowest cost per ton (tonne) of the coal mining methods (large equipment reduces unit costs)
$17.50 per ton (approximately $21.00 per cubic yard) Weight - approximately 1.20 tons per cubic yard All cubic yard prices are approximate, as material is sold by the weight. You pay for exactly what you ge t. 1 cubic yard Super Bag $41.00 *Super bags .
2010/2/26And that in turn is giving tar sands operators the confidence to expand production. So bizarrely cheap cleaner gas is fuelling the exploitation of the dirty tar sands. Syncrude Canada Ltd., the world's largest oil-sands operator, is one of the main companies benefiting from a natural-gas surplus that is causing lower prices.
2020/7/29Placer gold mining is the process of washing gold from gravel, sand or silt. Lode mining is extracting gold ores from veins in rock. Here we can see that the average value of gold recovered in Alaska in 1912 was $2.10 per cubic yard.
2017/3/10In 2015, France's Total sold part of its stake in a major new mining project. Bit by bit, major international oil companies are backing out. Tar sands backers try to put a positive spin on these divestments, pointing out that tar sands projects are increasingly owned
2013/8/5In addition to withdrawing water from other sources, tar sands operations are authorized to divert 652 million cubic meters of water from the Athabasca, double the current volume of withdrawals. Until several years ago, most tar sands bitumen was obtained through open pit mining, which requires the draining of wetlands, the diversion of streams, the clearcutting of forests, and the removal of
Mining trucks keep on getting bigger and bigger, as miners increasingly opt for huge capacity trucks with greater operational efficiency. Recently launched, the Belaz 75710 is by far the world's biggest dump truck, with the capacity to haul a staggering 496t of
However, in general, unit costs in USD range from $200 to $600 per cubic yard corresponding to treatment volumes ranging from less than 5,000 to approximately 15,000 cubic yards for POP-type contaminants. Larger volumes may have lower unit
Approved oil sands mining operations -- not the in situ kind that extract oil from tar sands far below the surface -- will take twice the annual water needs of the City of Calgary. The water will come from the Athabasca River, from which 359-million cubic metres will be diverted.
In June more than 100 U.S. and Canadian scientists signed a letter calling for a moratorium on the mining of tar sands, the sticky oil deposits whose extraction has blighted huge swaths of the landscape in Canada. Tar sands, which can produce 20 percent more
Enhanced recovery, secondary recovery- steam, water, and surfactants hydrofacturing: enhanced oil recovery: extracting oil using no techniques beyond pumping is called primary recovery. However, on the average, two-thirds of the oil is left in the ground.
During the stoppages caused by the wildfire, Albertan consumption of methane fell by twenty-five million cubic meters; the tar sands industry alone burns half of the total used in the province. The twin fetters of massive capital investment and a truculent climate contrasts to the surprising flexibility of the tar sands' main rival in non-conventional petroleum production: US shale oil .
tar sands eating the Earth to delay gasoline rationing scraping the bottom of the barrel is not good to the last drop source: Energy Watch Group: Crude Oil the Supply Outlook October 2007 (note: the chart shows conventional oil in the US, does not include the
Dependence on tar sands may just prolong the inevitable. At current oil consumption rates, the reserves that are found in the global supply of tar sands will last for about 2 more generations. Without a change to other forms of energy, or the discovery of new crude reserves, many societies will be faced with a tough decision in about 40 years about what to do for their needs to be met.
The unit cost of logging or road construction is essentially derived by dividing cost by production. In its simplest case, if you rented a tractor with operator for $60 per hour - including all fuel and other costs - and you excavated 100 cubic meters per hour, your unit cost for excavation would be $0.60 per cubic
As the CSLS notes, the tar sands are "the largest contributor to Canadian emissions growth. Since the early 1990s, output growth in the oil sands sector has been so great that total emissions from this source have increased even as emissions per unit of output (intensity) have declined by as much as 45 per cent.
Tar Sands Impact on Climate Change Posted on 23 August 2011 by dana1981 Beginning on 20 August 2011, Bill McKibben is leading what may be the largest green civil disobedience campaign in a generation, against the proposed construction of the 1,600-mile long Keystone XL pipeline.
Soon it could also yield the state's first commercial volumes of oil from tar sands under a California company's plans to process mined ore at the site near the Colorado state line. MCW Energy Group executives say they expect to produce 250 barrels a day at the site later this year under an agreement with Temple Mountain Energy Inc., which will supply the ore.
San Miguel Lignite Mine Christine, Texas On January 1, 2011, Andrew.J Construction Group was awarded a contract to provide management services to mine and deliver lignite from the San Miguel Mine. Approximately 3.3 million tons of lignite coal is delivered to
