Production of 600 barrels of bitumen per day as a pre-commercial phase. Deposits close to the surface are mined while resources more than 75 metres below the surface require in-situ recovery. Pairs of parallel horizontal wells are drilled to recover bitumen continuously from the McMurray formation. Ore is expected to be mined using traditional truck and shovel mining techniques. Mining shovels dig into the sand and load it into large trucks. The mined ore passes through crushers where it is prepared for extraction. Hot water is added to create oil sand slurry. This is fed via hydro transport to the extraction plant where bitumen is extracted in separation vessels.
