Abstract:
Concrete is not unknown to miners; apart from its uses in foundations for machinery, it has been employed for many years to plaster mine stopping and dams built of brick or stone, to render them comparatively water or gas tight. Within the last few years, contemporaneously with the advance of the science of reinforcing concrete, the general use of concrete in mining operations has been enormously extended.
