Transcript world renown, which expedition established the true cause of this previously mysterious phenomenon and discovered tremendous deposits of iron-ore quartz, undoubtedly of incalculable industrial value. The electrometric measurements conducted along the Schluem-Berger method have given special results in studying the oil districts of Old and New Grozny. The successful results of the Grozny surveys resulted in extending this method of investigation to the Baku, Ural-Emba, and Central Asiatic oil regions, while attempts were made to apply this method also to the Chukovsky oil-field in the Urals. Graviometric investigation, usually accompanied by seismometric investigation, has produced exceedingly interesting results in the Ural-Emba oil district, where a series of salt moulds was discovered constituting the nucleus of the oil-beds, thus showing them to be fairly analogous to the famous Gulf Coast oil fields on the coast of Mexico. I fondly hope that all these methods will be applied as widely as possible in surveying and prospecting for useful mineral deposits. I deemed it necessary to characterise somewhat fully the basic methods used by the study of our mineral resources in order to show that there is still much room for improvement, and that this part of our work requires serious attention. I shall now pass on to describe the extent of our knowledge of these mineral deposits which constitute the chief sources of our motive energy. In this characterisation I shall bear in mind, above all, the sum total of the resources of our motive power, as well as the quality of these resources as revealed during the process of their exploitation. I deem it necessary, first of all, to dwell on the calorific and combustible minerals in which huge supplies of solar energy have accumulated throughout a number of
