Editor(s)

Watts, G. A. and Stanbury, J. E. A.

Abstract

In the past, the cost and time required for the construction of shafts has played an important part in the planning of underground mines. The economics and technology of shaft construction in the future can be expected to play an even greater role in the planning of new mines and the operation of existing mines. The paper discusses the most commonly used shaft sinking methods used today for excavating vertical shafts and the need for new technology and methods.
