A concrete containing only magnetite ore concentrate, cement, and water is found to have appreciably better shielding properties than ordinary concrete, and to possess good strength and ease of handling. Exceptionally high moisture content, although gradually lost by diffusion, decreases by only about 50 percent in thirty years in an eight‐foot thick wall. Its use is desirable under certain conditions because of space economy due to its high density.
