What are oil sands?



  1. 0 Votes

    Oil sand is “a naturally occurring mixture of sand, clay or other minerals, water and bitumen”. Bitumen is a viscous oil. Oil sands must be processed and treated before the bitumen can be used as fuel. In the past, oil sands were referred to, mistakenly, as tar sands, and were unsuccessfully used for roofing and paving. Currently, oil sands are being seen as an alternative to traditional oil drilling.
