The objective of this three-volume report was to develop a system to reduce the costs, safety hazards, and time currently required in lining mine shafts with concrete. Volume I describes a basic continuous shaft lining system, the design and operation of a prototype unit, and estimates of cost. Volume II summarizes the results of the laboratory- and full-scale tests conducted during the program. Volume III contains related information on the laboratory tests and test facilities.
