TAR SANDS SHOWDOWN

• Tar sands oil is found in the ground in the form of bitumen which is a high hydrocarbon that is solid at normal temperatures and mixed in with sand clay and water Bitumen usually makes up 10-12% of the mixture • Bitumen is found just below the surface where it can be extracted using giant open pit mining techniques and far below the surface which re-quires high pressure steam
