This document combines reports, as of 2020, for projects relating to mine site reclamation of the Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) Land Environmental Priority Area (EPA).
These research projects focus on instrumented watersheds, wetlands, compensation lakes and aquatics, soils and reclamation materials, revegetation, wildlife research and monitoring, and environmental research and monitoring. Each report outlines target objectives of the project, progress and lessons learned for projects that are at a sufficient stage of completion in 2020 to report outcomes for the site.
These projects were developed in collaboration with various research providers and industry collaborators. Please contact the Industry Champion identified under each research project if any additional information is needed. Updated reports for multi-year and extended projects can be found in later editions of the COSIA Land EPA Mine Site Reclamation Research Report.
