This is an excellent overview of mining and in-situ oil sands projects. The structure invites participation and sharing. I enjoyed the interaction with Clayton the instructor. I think there were only a few topics where it was not clear when an opinion was being presented while it sounded like a fact.

Introduction to the Canadian Oil Sands course was extremely informative, interesting and well thought through course. It filled in a lot of gaps for me, and would be a great course for someone new to the industry, as well. Very well done. My only regret is that I didn't take this course three years ago, when I was new to the industry.
