Hot-Water Separation of Alberta Bituminous Sand

SEPARATION of the oil from the bituminous sands of the Athabaska area of Alberta has been a subject of study by the Research Council of Alberta. The results of the study have been published in the Annual Reports of the Council. However, the last Annual Report in which there is mention of bituminous sand separation is that for 1934. The attention that is being directed toward the bituminous sands at the present time calls for an up-to-date summary of the work of the Research Council of Alberta on the hot-water separation process.
