Paterson & Cooke opened an office in Perth in 2012 to support its many Australian clients and to expand the range of services it offers in Australia and Southeast Asia

Since then, the Perth office has completed a multitude of projects ranging from test work campaigns and concept studies to the detailed design of long-distance slurry pipelines and mine backfill systems. The in-house laboratory provides test work services that include bench top test work for the selection and sizing of thickeners and filtration equipment, rotational viscometer tests, solids properties tests (particle size distribution and specific gravity), and pipe loop test facilities.

Our capabilities also include the optimisation of our clients’ existing mine operations through on-site process audits, plant upgrades and retrofits as well as construction support and commissioning services.
