The author created a complete system of practical geometry, as relating to the surface and underground surveying of mines, for the student of mineral surveying. Practical solutions to the various problems which occurred to the author during his own practice are presented here in the hopes that it would introduce a more accurate system for correct plans and statistical records of all subterranean drivages and excavations.
