Mining in the Boreal Tar Sands Global Forest Atlas

A key area of controversy over mining in the boreal region is the exploitation of tar (or oil) sands, which are areas with sand or sandstone saturated with bitumen, a viscous form of petroleum, which can be mined and processed to produce oil. Tar sands are extracted by either surface (open pit) mining or in-situ extraction. For surface mining, areas are first cleared of trees, bogs are drained
