A Guide to Audit and Assess Oil Sands Fluid Fine Tailings Performance Management
This document provides oil sands mining operators with guidelines for the audit and assessment process consistent with the requirements set out in “Guidelines for Performance Management of Oil Sands Fluid Fine Tailings Deposits to Meet Closure Commitments”.
Guidelines for Performance Management of Oil Sands Fluid Fine Tailings Deposits to Meet Closure Commitments
The purpose of this document is to provide oil sands mining operators with guidelines for creating fluid fine tailings (FFT) management plans, consistent government policies and regulations, facilitating closure of oil sands mines by accelerating the conversion of FFT into stable closure landscapes.
Beach Fines Capture Study
Obtaining an enhanced understanding of the processes controlling fines capture in beaches could lead to implementation of operational changes that would increase beach fines capture and reduce the amount of fines forming fluid, resulting in smaller quantities of mature fine tailings (MFT).
Technical Guide for Fluid Fine Tailings Management
This report describes the different ways in which various oil sands tailings deposit types are produced, their important performance factors and how the deposit performance can be assessed through the period of their placement to their readiness for reclamation.
