      In , weekly water withdrawal by mineable and in situ oil sands producers from the Athabasca River ranged from % to % of the measured flow rate during the winter period, and from % to % of measured flow rate during the open water period. Below, we provide an overview of eight companies active in uranium exploration and development. Appia Energy. Appia Energy (CNSX: API; US-OTC: APAAF) is involved with rare earth and uranium exploration in the Athabasca basin of Saskatchewan. It holds a % interest in the sq. km Alces Lake property, 34 km east of Uranium City. The Athabasca oil sands are named after the Athabasca River which cuts through the heart of the deposit, and traces of the heavy oil are readily observed on the river banks. Historically, the bitumen was used by the indigenous Cree and Dene Aboriginal peoples to waterproof their canoes. The oil deposits are located within the boundaries of Treaty 8, and several First Nations of the area are Coordinates: 57°01′N °39′W / °N °W.

This overview is aimed at providing Insight and general direction to research managers and scientists regarding in situ oil sands development.

Adams et al,) open pit mining has been central to oil sands development. Only 7% of the Athabasca Oil Sands deposit can be mined using. There are two ways to extract bitumen from the oil sands: either mine the entire deposit and gravity separate the bitumen, or extract the bitumen in-place (or in-situ) using steam without disturbing the technique used depends on the depth of the deposit.

The Athabasca oil sands, also known as the Athabasca tar sands, are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort oil sands, hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and nates: 57°01′N °39′W / °N.

The intent of the project was to establish a foundation for ongoing monitoring of the in situ development footprint that would ultimately assist stakeholders and regulators in responsible land management and sustainable development. The Athabasca oil sands are named after the Athabasca River which cuts through the heart of the deposit, and traces of the heavy oil are readily observed on the river banks.
