Description

A method and apparatus are described for forming improved seals in boreholes formed in host rock by using the apparatus to introduce a feedstock into the borehole and simultaneously subject the introduced feedstock to both compressive and shear stresses until the borehole becomes filled and sealed. These seals are primarily intended to restrict the movement of radioactive or hazardous materials into the accessible environment.
