    The overall and ultimate objective of this demonstration/pilot project
    is the actual validation and demonstration of the technical feasibility
    and safety of the disposal of radwaste in a deep clay formation, for
    those components of the system and those operations which can be
    validated and demonstrated directly. [...] In this biannual report 1985-1986 the main efforts within the
    contractual framework were devoted to the engineering and design of the
    test drift and the the accompanying mine-by test. This resulted in the
    assignments of a contract for the construction of the test drift and the
    emplacement of all instrumentation for a auscultation of the clay mass
    around the position of the drift to be build. A overview of the status
    for the design and the assignment for the construction of the test drift
    and the mine-by test is given in the chapters IV and V respectively.
    Particular tests planned to be performed in the demonstration programme
    concern the impact of a heating and radiating source. Recently
    preference is given to combine these tests and in Chapter VI the most
    recent developments for such a combined test are commented.
