Cypher Environmental is once again returning to Cape Town, South Africa to join the Official Canadian Delegation as attendee of Mining Indaba 2018 from February 3 – 8, 2018! Mining Indaba has been bringing together Africa’s mining experts annually for over 20 years and represents the largest mining conference and trade show on the continent. Cypher has found Mining Indaba to be an excellent platform to help introduce its environmentally friendly mining solutions to prospective partners all over the globe. In Africa, where water resources can be scarce, the reduction of water consumption that can be obtained from the use … Read More
Cypher Environmental’s Dust Stop® was recently used for dust control for the gold mines in Guinea, West Africa. Dust Stop® was able to effectively provide dust control for mine haul roads. Read the recommendation letter from Acting Mine Manager below. Read Full Letter “23 May, 2012 Dear Mr. Burns, Recently we tried the Dust Stop on our site at the Lefa Gold Mine in Guinea, West Africa. The results obtained were very satisfactory for us and have brought us to the conclusion that we will introduce Dust Stop on all of our haul roads. With the recent taxes being imposed … Read More
EarthZyme® was chosen for its ability to enhance the engineering properties of clay rich soils. Comprising of a combination of enzymes, electrolytes and surfactants, the EarthZyme formula works by freeing water from the soil enabling it to be compacted into a denser form and altering the clay to bind it together permanently. The roads that EarthZyme® was applied to exhibited tremendous strength despite rainfall, allowing for haul traffic to continue in wet weather conditions. On an annual basis, Shenhua Mine will be able to harvest more coal as well as benefit from savings due to the reduced need for dust … Read More
Columbian Coal Mine Puts EarthZyme® to the Test A pilot project was carried out to prove the efficacy and enormous strength of EarthZyme® roads to facilitate the use of heavy trucks. These trucks are required in the mining, logging and oil operations around the globe. This specific road stabilization project was on a mine haul road in one of the largest coal mines in Colombia. This operation produces nearly two million tons of coal per year, maintaining a sterile standard ratio of 6 to 1. The mine mobilizes approximately 15 million cubic meters per year using CAT 793 trucks … Read More
For the third time, Todd Burns, President of Cypher Environmental, was asked to give a speech to the International Business Students from Red River College. The program at Red River College is very diverse, not only in course material, but also in terms of the student enrollment. Although the program is offered in Canada, not a single Canadian student is enrolled in this year’s program, showing the diversity and applicability of the course to handle and discuss a broad range of business topics relevant to commerce globally. Therefore, Cypher’s experience doing business abroad is always of keen interest to the … Read More
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 … 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. As a result, even with the low commodity prices and common cost-cutting measures most mines are taking, that is putting the squeeze on most mine suppliers, Cypher has actually seen a recent spike in sales to 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 … Read More
Unpaved roads can be dangerous to operate on and require frequent and ongoing road maintenance to upkeep. Our soil stabilization product, EarthZyme is 100% environmentally-friendly and yields permanent results. EarthZyme applications result in improved engineering properties of treated soils, such as increased CBR values and densities, and reduced swell, permeability, dust and rolling resistance.
