AbstractMeasurements of total organic content and extractable bitumen for a number of different grade oil sands were used to obtain the extraction efficiency of several common bench-scale bitumen recovery techniques. The hot-water process was inefficient for feeds of moderate to high fines content. Soxhlet extraction and spherical agglomeration were found to be of similar efficiency for most grades of feed. For these two processes the efficiency is limited by the mineral fines content, probably because of surface absorption of bitumen components.
