This paper, investigating shaft mucking, has been prepared as a partial requirement for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering. In the following material I have attempted to collect and compile all available information on mechanical shaft mucking, to compare and contrast the different methods and to trace their development through to the latest innovation. This development of the investigation is purposely being used to lead to a new method which will be discussed hypothetically as a conclusion to the paper.
