Investing in Africa Mining Indaba 2016

Cypher recently took part in Mining Indaba, in Cape Town, South Africa, from February 8 – 11, 2016, and continued to spread the word about the cost savings that Cypher’s solutions offer to help reduce operational costs at mines.  Mining Indaba has been an annual event for over 20 years, bringing together Africa’s mining experts and represents the largest mining conference and trade show on the continent, offering a great platform for Cypher to help introduce its mining solutions to.  In Africa, where water resources can be scarce, the reduction of water consumption that can be obtained from the use of Dust Stop and EarthZyme for their haul road stabilization and dust suppression properties is of significant value to all the operations located within the continent. A program that usually takes place at events where EDC (Export Development Canada) is present is the EDC Matchmaking Program.  Cypher was honoured to … Read More

Cypher Environmental - Year in Review 2015

Overall, 2015 was a great year for Cypher. It was filled with new projects, lots of travel, and of course further innovation, which is the foundation that Cypher is built upon. We constantly strive to innovate and this year was no exception compared to years past. Six new Research and Development projects were started, with a continued focus on our soil stabilization, dust control and water remediation technologies. This research was devoted not only to developing new and unique applications for the solutions we offer, but also to find ways to improve them and develop new solutions for some common problems that exist in the world today. We look forward to putting some of these new innovative ideas and technologies to work in 2016! With regards to the travel, we not only took part in the annual Canadian conferences and trade shows that we always do, such as CIM, PDAC … Read More

Cypher Environmental - EDC Trade Mission in Colombia

Cypher Environmental recently took part in an Export Development Canada (EDC) trade mission in Colombia, focused on infrastructure, the week of November 23, 2015. The mission included B2B meetings in Bogota, Medellin and Barranquilla with several of Colombia’s largest infrastructure companies and key sector players, and was followed by networking opportunities at the National Infrastructure Congress in Cartagena where first-hand intelligence about Colombia’s Infrastructure Master Plans were gathered. Colombia’s infrastructure program includes airports, ports, social infrastructure, as well as an ambitious road concession program that entails the construction of 30+ road projects that will add over 8,000 kilometers of highways to the country’s transportation system and will require a total estimated investment of US$25 billion. Therefore Cypher’s soil stabilization and road dust control solutions were discussed with several key players during the week to investigate their applicability for use as solutions in several of these projects. As usual, the team … Read More

EarthZyme Haul Road in China Continues to Perform Under Heavy Haul Truck Traffic

Cypher Environmental - Shenhua Mining Road

The nearly 20 km of permanent haul roads stabilized with EarthZyme in August of 2014 continue to perform as promised for the Shenhua Group’s open pit coal mine near Xilinhote, Inner Mongolia, in Northern China. 19.8 km of EarthZyme stabilized haul roads were built over 15 months ago now and therefore have been subjected to the harsh Inner Mongolian winter and the two distinct rainy seasons regularly experienced in the region, and continue to exhibit significantly improved engineering properties. Weather conditions aside, considering the roads are subjected to a constant flow of 250 ton (when empty) haul truck traffic, and the original untreated clay soil is considered to have marginal engineering properties at best, the results speak volumes to the performance characteristics of EarthZyme stabilized materials. EarthZyme stabilization results in high clay content soils with increased density and CBR (California Bearing Ratio) results, as well as significantly reduced swelling potential. … Read More

Our team at Cypher Environmental Ltd. really enjoyed our experiences meeting with old and new customers at Extemin 2015, in Arequipa, Peru last week. Claimed to be the largest mining trade show in South America, our soil stabilization and dust control solutions were a popular topic at the event due to the high demand for sustainable technologies to assist in the better construction and management of the vast network of haul roads and access roads in the Peruvian mining industry. We attended the show in partnership with our distributors in Peru, Informes y Soluciones S.A.C., and were both very excited about forging new partnerships as a result of all the great connections that we made. Many of those connections were developed as a result of the great matchmaking program we took part in, spearheaded by EDC (Export Development Canada). The EDC matchmaking meetings really solidified our investment in participating in … Read More

Cypher Environmental - Curries Landing

Cypher Environmental is pleased to announce a recent undertaking of a soil stabilization and dust control related research project, jointly funded by Brandon University and Cypher Environmental. The project involves a very detailed look in the lab at the improved engineering properties of clay soils with EarthZyme and Dust Stop, as well as an evaluation of 3 miles of roads being built with EarthZyme and Dust Stop in the Rural Municipality (RM) of Cornwallis, just outside the City of Brandon, Manitoba. There is a critical need for better construction techniques and stabilization of unpaved roads throughout rural and Northern Manitoba as well as across the country.  The current project is aimed at providing a low cost and sustainable solution to these problems through the use of cheaper clay-rich aggregates and non-toxic organic catalysts, EarthZyme soil stabilization and Dust Stop dust control solution, that cause high-density packing and strong semi-permanent bonding … Read More
