About Cyclone Projects & Consulting (Pty) Ltd

Cyclone Projects & Consulting (Pty) Ltd founder, G J van Ryssen’s interest in cycloning was provoked while being a plant metallurgist since the early days of 1981 and eventually resigned during 1993 as manager at Foskor.

The interest in cycloning opportunities inspired more research in this technology in constructing gold and other mineral TSFs. The most obvious advances in cycloning, amongst others, are the vast increase in TSF stability and water recovery.

CP & C was established during September 1998 and since that time an impressive list of projects for the mayor mining houses has been undertaken and successfully commissioned for the mining industry world wide. CP & C is considered to be the leader in the field of cycloning technologies and are the appointed consultant for many mines in Africa where the technology has been implemented.

The recent development in TSF vacuum cycloning has been a breakthrough in TSF construction and the patented system (SA Patent No. 2011/03614) accepted and implemented widely by the mining industry.

CEP and CP&C each have been issued with the ISO 9001 : 2008 certificates during January 2015  (View Certificate)
