Many urban areas are plagued by settlement caused by the failure of underlaying mines. One such problem was overcome quickly and effectively by filling the mine with a concrete grout placed from the surface through 6-inch drill holes. The work was accomplished by first constructing a concrete wall around the area to be grouted. The enclosed area was then filled with a high slump grout.
