Summary[edit]

Description
English: This is a picture of Syncrude's base mine. The yellow structures are the bases of pyramids made of sulphur - it is not economical for Syncrude to sell the sulphur so it stockpiles it instead. Behind that is the tailings pond, held in by what is recognized as the largest dam in the world. The extraction plant is just to the right of this photograph and most of the mine is to the left.
Deutsch: Tagebau der Syncrude Canada Ltd. zur Gewinnung der Athabasca-Ölsande im Nordosten von Alberta, Kanada. Die gelben Gebilde sind Schwefelhalden. Der Schwefel entstammt dem im Ölsand enthaltenen Asphalt und wird dort gelagert, weil es unwirtschaftlich ist, ihn zu verkaufen. Dahinter befindet sich ein Absetzbecken für Schlämme aus der Ölsandaufbereitung (engl.: tailings pond). Das Werk, in dem die Extraktion des Asphalts stattfindet, ist unmittelbar rechts außerhalb des Bildes, während sich der größte Teil des Tagebaus links außerhalb des Bildes befindet.
