Paterson & Cooke was formed in 1991 as a partnership between Dr. Robert Cooke and Dr. Angus Paterson, with the aim of providing consulting services specializing in hydraulics and hydrotransport to the local mining industry.

Since then the company has grown and extended its range of services so that it now offers comprehensive specialist and slurry handling solutions from its offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa, Santiago in Chile, Denver in the USA, Sudbury, Vancouver and Calgary in Canada, Perth in Australia and Cornwall in the UK.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and on being able to offer innovative solutions to our clients.

Our engineering operations are supported through comprehensive laboratory services covering rheology, pipe loop tests, pump performance tests, clay behaviour analysis, thickening, filtration, cycloning and backfill material characterization.

Our strength lies in the intellect, commitment and creativity of the people who work for Paterson & Cooke.
