Family of oil sands pioneer hosting open house

A chemist known for perfecting the oil sands extraction method more than 80 years ago, will be commemorated today.

The late chemist and researcher Dr. Karl A. Clark is best known for developing the process that uses hot water to separate oil from sand, essentially the same method used today.

This afternoon members of his family will host an open house dedicated to the man known as "the father of the oil sands".

The free event runs from 1 to 3:30 at the Oil Sands Discovery Centre.

There is a public school named in Fort McMurray named after Clark.
