Cypher Environmental - Haul Road

Industrial products provide dust suppression, water management alternatives. Anyone who has driven on a rural road or worked in remote areas where oil, mining, forestry or other development is occurring knows dealing with dust and unstable soils can be annoying; it can also be a never-ending and costly task. Winnipeg-based Cypher Environmental Ltd., run by 34-year-old entrepreneur Todd Burns, has perfected an eco-friendly way to virtually eliminate that dust and to stabilize soils in areas like mine sites, where heavy truck traffic is a constant and expensive irritant. And it has developed a technology that uses bacteria and enzymes for wastewater remediation, potentially a multimillion-dollar market. Cypher’s business motto – “Driven by innovation – partners in performance” – captures the fast-growing company’s raison d’être. As is the case with most successful companies, it took leadership to bring that motto and vision to reality. Burns, who has travelled to more than … Read More

It’s no secret that Cypher’s road stabilization and haul road dust control technologies have been specifically engineered to produce not only significant environmental impacts, but also significant cost savings in the mining industry.

However, we were happy to note in the article below, written by Nelson Bennet for Business Vancouver, that it appears as though the five year bear market in the mining industry is coming to an end. Good news for mine suppliers globally! Please see the below article for more information. A 2016 rally in commodity prices and mining stocks has analysts guardedly optimistic Recent stock charts are making it tempting to declare a five-year-long bear market for mining … Read More
