During the past few years there has been a tremendous advance in the rate of sinking shafts. The sinking of shafts has always been one of the more costly and time consuming operations in the development of a mine. Shaft sinking is a long-term operation and only in the past few years has there been a remarkable increase in the rate of sinking.
