Crosscut

 

horizontal (sometimes inclined) underground mine working that has no direct outlet to the surface and is driven into the rock at an angle to the line of strike of the deposit (that is, it approaches or intersects the bed). Crosscuts are intended for stripping minerals, for transporting goods and personnel (for which rails are laid and conveyors are mounted), and for ventilation and water drainage.


Crosscut
