In this work thermal method to processing organic part from oil sands were used. Content of organic part in oil sands was 9 wt. %. The composition of the oil sand was determined by elemental analysis and chemical composition of the organic part of oil sands was determined by infrared spectroscopy. The main properties of oil sands related to the structure and properties of the mineral, natural organic binder features of the interaction of mineral materials with organic binders, rock density, binder content and the degree of filling into the pores. The organic component of natural bitumen on the physical and chemical properties similar to high viscosity heavy crude oil.
