Oil Sands 101: Process Overview Oil Sands Magazine

Sep 01, 2016  Oil sands are actually found all over the world, and are sometimes referred to as tar sands or bituminous sands. A typical oil sands deposit in Alberta contains on average about 10% bitumen, 5% water and 85% solids, mostly in the form of coarse silica sand. Oil sands also contain fine solids and clays, typically in the range of 10 to 30% by weight.
