Transcript ture on the above-stated objects of construction, so as to reduce the figure to 20 million roubles, was done for the purpose of inducing the Government to assign insufficient funds, to start with these funds the pumping of water out of the mines, preparations for production, and other work of reconstruction. Our group hoped that in the nearest future, as soon as it should transpire that the means assigned to the ' coloured ' metal industry were extremely inadequate, the government, in view of the difficult economic position of the country, would be unable to proceed along the path of further capital investments, and would give concessions for enterprises in the ' coloured ' metal industry. "The subsequent plan of sabotage as regards Ridder consisted in so delaying the electrolysis of zinc as to make Ridder a non-paying concern. The electrolysis of zinc requires a big amount of energy, namely, 4,000 kilowatt hours per ton of zinc. Consequently, in order to delay the electrolysis of zinc it was necessary to delay the building of the big power stations, the Ulbinskaya and the Ubinskaya. Naturally the plan could only be carried out very cautiously, in order that it should not be found out at once. Therefore, I not only went ahead with, and successfully terminated, the work of reconstruction of the mine, completed the equipping of a plant for dressing ores, constructed a lead works, increased the capacity of the Ridder railway, constituted the Khiiryus- ovskaya power station (capable of serving the needs of numerous departments, but inadequate for the electrolysis of zinc on an industrial scale), but I also raised the question of building a zinc distilling works. My grounds for stopping the construction of Ulbinskaya station were sufficiently plausible— the impossibility of undertaking this, owing to transport difficulties, shortage of building material, and the absence of a detailed plan, and the unreliability of the ground under the Tishin dam. In reality, even at that time, in the summer of 1926, it was possible to construct a two-verst tunnel, for this work did not require either the transportation of any large quantity of material or a detailed plan ; and as regards the Tishin dam it was not indispensable. There was an alternative method which did not require the dam." The most notable features of sabotage in the Ural platinum mines were the conservation of underground wealth for future concessionaires, and incurring of unnecessary and 18
