Preliminary risk assessment of the wet landscape option for reclamation of oil sands mine tailings : bioassays with mature fine tailings porewater / Robert E.A. Madill [and four others].: En13-5/00-80E-PDF

"This is the second paper in a series on oil sands mine tailings and the “wet landscape’ option for management of fine tailings and site reclamation. The first paper was on the mutagenicity of polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) in porewater from Athabasca oil sands mature fine tailings. The present paper presents results of testing of model PACs and mature fine tailings porewater extracts with rat Ah receptor and EROD induction in rat primary hepatocytes. Activity of PACs and extracts was minimal in both tests"--Management perspective.
