Export Development Canada (EDC) has invited Todd Burns, President, Cypher Environmental to join EDC President & CEO, Benoit Daignault, for an executive roundtable and breakfast session, to discuss export strategies and investments abroad, successes and challenges to international growth.
The International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII) is a unique industry-government-post-secondary education and research institution partnership jointly funded by industry and government. The Institute is a catalyst to developing industry-driven education and conducts industry-driven research and development to address several emerging issues in the mining industry. A major focus of the IMII’s initiatives is to not only to develop innovative technologies to help grow the mining industry, but also to help spur innovation that will help promote environmentally friendly solutions for the mining industry. As a result, Cypher Environmental was invited to participate in the latest IMII event on Friday, April 17, 2015 to help introduce the green mining solutions that Cypher has developed for the mining industry to the IMII members. Cypher Environmental has developed several green mining products such as our Dust Stop dust control solution, our Earthzyme soil stabilization treatment, and our Ultrazyme water treatment technology.

Cypher Environmental was pleased to be invited to the Grand Opening of the Brandon University Geology Core Lab, which has been affectionately named the “Core Shack”. The Core Shack houses a massive sampling of cores that were generously donated by several operating mines. This core collection is unlike any other housed by any Universities in North America and therefore very unique to Brandon University. We are also proud to say that the Core Shack will be home to some geotechnical work being done on a joint project between the University of Brandon and Cypher Environmental that will focus on soil stabilization. Several soil samples will be analyzed before and after treatment with EarthZyme, Cypher Environmental’s soil stabilization product. Tying in with the lab portion of the project, roads near Brandon will be built and monitored for improvements to the engineering properties of the soil. Pictured below are some photos of … Read More
Cypher Environmental recently attended the Prospectors and Developers of Canada trade show and conference. This event offers a wonderful opportunity as one of the world’s largest international mining trade shows, with delegations attending from all over the world. While the conference and trade show share a focus towards attracting investment for exploration, junior mines and start-ups in Canada, there is also a great presence from large operating mines, which is the target audience for Cypher Environmental. Although the mining industry is slowing globally, Cypher Environmental is realizing an expansion in its mining contracts due to the great CSR, or Corporate Social Responsibility, implications that the use of our technologies (Dust Stop, Earthzyme, Ultrazyme) have when used in and around mine sites. For example, mine sites around the world are situated close to nearby communities, but the dust generated by the haul trucks and other mining equipment can pose serious health … Read More
Todd Burns, President of Cypher Environmental, was recently invited to be an expert panelist at the Go Global Event, held at the Radisson Hotel in Downtown Winnipeg, on April 8th, 2015. The event was attended by Canada’s Minister of International Trade, the Honorable Ed Fast, as well as representatives from all the Government of Canada export support agencies such as Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service, Export Development Canada, the Business Development Bank of Canada and the Canadian Commercial Corporation. Since Cypher Environmental has such a diverse history of global exports, we have extensive experience in dealing with all four organizations and therefore were one of only two companies requested to discuss our experiences. We got a chance to talk about Cypher Environmental’s entry into exporting our soil stabilization (Earthzyme), dust control (Dust Stop) and water remediation (Ultrazyme) solutions, and our history in dealing with all of the aforementioned Canadian export support … Read More
As a part of Cypher’s continued commitment to give back to the community, Cypher will be buying a table and attending a Starry Night (website: http://jdrfca.donordrive.com/?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1479), a program arranged by JDRF; whose motto is “Improving lives curing type 1 diabetes”. The event will be a fun team building event for the employees of Cypher in attendance, but the main goal of course is to raise funds for Type 1 Diabetes. We hope that our continued participation in events such as these will help us continue to making the community around us a better place.
It’s no secret that the mining industry in Canada is significant – employing more than 400,000 people in Canada and representing over 50 per cent of the world’s public mining companies. It’s also home to one of the world’s largest mining shows – PDAC 2015. Again this year, Export Development Canada, in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Export (CAMESE), will be hosting match-making sessions to help ensure that Canadian small- and medium-sized businesses attending the convention can meet the right international players. Cypher Environmental has taken advantage of the match-making sessions at PDAC in the past and sees them as a valuable opportunity, as described in this article by EDC featuring Cypher. “This year we’ve see an increased focus from the mining companies on finding suppliers that provide environmentally friendly solutions,” says Andrea Gaunt, EDC Sector Advisor for Mining. “This type of expertise is what … Read More
Cypher Environmental will be attending PDAC 2015, the signature event from the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC). The PDAC International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange is the world’s leading Convention for people, companies and organizations in, or connected with, mineral exploration. It is literally ‘Where the World’s Mineral Industry Meets’. Everyone at Cypher is especially pleased to have a booth presence at the convention for the first time this year. Export Development Canada has promised a convention with more of an international flair than ever before. There will be Canadian Trade Commissioners from DFAIT (Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade) in attendance from countries in Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and of course, North America. DFAIT’s role will be to bring delegations from across the world and Cypher has plans to meet with several parties from international … Read More

Cypher Environmental was recently invited to once again make a presentation at the Canada – China Green Mining Innovation Workshop, held in conjunction with the China Mining Conference, on October 30, 2014. The event was put on through a combined effort from the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association (CNIA) and Natural Resources Canada. This was the second of such events, the first of which Cypher also presented at during the Prospectors and Developers’ Association of Canada event in 2013 in Toronto, ON, Canada. Cypher was chosen to present again at this year’s event due to the great work Cypher has been doing over the last few years in the mining industry in China. Namely, the introduction of EarthZyme as an innovative soil stabilization solution for a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative for the building and maintenance of high performance haul roads. EarthZyme has been chosen as the product of … Read More
