If the deposit is near the surface, the oil sands is mined and sent to a bitumen processing plant For deposits that are deep below the surface, bitumen is extracted in-situ (or in place) Both facilities produce a relatively clean bitumen product which is mostly free of sand and water
DOVE Dry mining equipment and machinery (Dry Minerals Processing Plants) are designed and configured for classification, concentration, separation and recovery of metals and minerals concentrate in dry mode and without the use of water Dry processing has many advantages over wet processing except when water is actually required prior to concentration and separation
Heavy mineral sands (HMS) deposits comprising unconsolidated sand in an area where the water table can be managed, are often suited to dry mining with heavy earth moving equipment Dry mining also allows greater flexibility around basement irregularities and is suitable for higher slimes deposits
