Mining Levels: Stations, Drifts,Crosscuts

When the main extraction opening is a shaft, the horizons or “levels” are developed from stations cut into the side of the shaft. Shaft stations usually are partly cut and timbered during shaft-sinking operations to avoid later damage to the permanent shaft timbers from

Mine Shaft Sinking Costs

Costs of sinking a mine shaft vary with the size and depth of the shaft; nature of the rock (the ease with which it can be drilled and broken, and the nature and amount of support required); amount of water that must be handled, speed of sinking, organization of the work, and the equipment employed; and labor and other local conditions. The effect of most of these factors upon costs is self
