CPC is proud to announce that our application CPC Trac Skirt System has been chosen as an Emerging Innovation Category semi-finalist in the 2019 WA Innovator of the Year program organised by the Government of Western Australia Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.  CPC would like to invite you to see the CPC Trac Skirt System video and learn more about our innovation here: https://www.cpcengineering.com.au/asset-management/cpc-trac-skirt-system/


The West Business interviewed Glen Weir last weekend, the results of his interview can be found at https://thewest.com.au/business/mining/mining-workers-cling-to-fifo-lifestyle-as-sector-picks-up-ng-b881052800z

We recently became a registered building contractor (company) via the Government of Western Australia Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.

CPC Engineering recently completed the operations services for the CBH Group in Western Australia.
We provided equipment fabrication, bulk earthworks, civil, road & mechanical constructions, electrical installation and conveyors systems upgrades. Our projects included Braizer, Broomehill, Kondinin, Kukerin, Lake King, Mt Madden and Ongerup, Beaumont and Chadwick sites.
Robert Hart, Manager Divison at Ravensthorpe and Esperance, would like to thank everyone involved in these projects.
The CBH Group has delivered tonnes of storage capacity that will help reduce waiting for Western Australian growers, and CPC is proud to be part of this development.



CPC engaged a Joint Venture Partnership (JVP) for the EPC delivery of the CIL circuit to the Evolution Cowal Gold Operation (CGO) in NSW. The construction part of this project included lifting a 70 metres long structure, 117 tonnes to the top of completed tanks. The ground assemble structure is loaded with pipe, grid mesh, handrail and cables.
CPC General Manager Project Design, Rod Davies, acknowledged the outstanding effort from all of the team, “If we continue to make safety our priority and perform the work in accordance with our systems and procedures, we will always get the best outcome”.
The scope of work for CGO included:
• Installation of a new leach circuit to treat flotation tails and detoxification of this stream before pumping to the tails storage facility
• Installation of new carbon handling and electrowinning facilities to treat the gold recovered from flotation tails leach circuit
• Installation of new reagent mixing, and distribution systems needed for the operation of the leach circuit, detoxification facilities and carbon handling facilities


CPC Project Design recently completed the PFS for Reward Minerals Lake Disappointment Project, the world’s largest SOP brine project outside of China. CPC Project Design congratulates Reward Minerals on a successful study outcome and looks forward to working with Reward on the further development of the Lake Disappointment Project. For further information see the Reward Minerals website: www.rewardminerals.com

CPC Project Design has been awarded the Black Rock Mining Ltd Mahenge Graphite Project Feasibility Study, and recently was involved in a 90t pilot plant run at SGS Lakefield in Canada. Grade and recovery profiles of the Ulanzi ore was exceptional with the Ulanzi coarse flake graphite showing strong physical properties, minimising flake degradation. For further information see the Black Rock Mining website: www.blackrockmining.com.au

In May this year, CPC Project Design (CPC) formed a strategic Joint Venture (JV) partnership with ECM. Evolution Mining has recently awarded us the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contract to design, construct and commission the Flot Tail Leach Project at the company’s Cowal Gold Operations in NSW.

The project will commence in December 2017 with turnkey civil, structural, mechanical piping, electrical and instrumentation activities and is scheduled to finish in August 2018. The JV brings together the key strengths of both companies.

The parties have worked closely together over the past few months to create a compelling tender offering that highlighted the solid experience, complementary skill sets and close cultural alignment of ECM and CPC.

CPC Engineering is demonstrating the latest innovation in skirting maintenance, the TRAC Skirt removable skirting system. The TRAC Skirt* is the only system that allows for easy removal of the entire skirt panel. The panel shown is a 2.4m long section weighing over 400kg. Removal of an individual panel takes less than 10 minutes (the replacement is just as quick). Once out, the panel is easily rolled along the length of the conveyor to a location, or locations, specifically set up for removal.

The TRAC Skirt system eliminates the need to work in a confined space and the need for anyone to put their hands within the transfer area. It is ideally suited for tunnels and screen houses where access is limited. The other advantage of the TRAC Skirt is the ability to use the rail system to remove the existing skirt sections saving time during the retrofit process.

Prior to filming, we demonstrated the system to senior representatives of one of WA’s major iron ore miners, and the feedback was very positive.

CPC wish to acknowledge the following support and collaboration.

Westplate on the initial design, engineering and prototype development. MW Steel Fab (Wayne and Mark) for all their help with the trolley and panel removal mechanisms.

The TRAC Skirt prototype is on a road trip to the Pilbara this week, first stop Port Hedland, so keep a look out for demo times.
