Transcript shales. The hydrogenisation and berginisation method make it possible to obtain a liquid fuel and a number of other oleous products derived from coal which is of prime importance in the solution of the liquid fuel problem. Owing to the importance of coal in modern economic life the greatest attention is paid everywhere to the study of its available supplies. This country also has given the question much thought, especially as it bears on the Donetz Basin, at the expense of neglecting the study of other sources of useful minerals. The world's supplies of coal, according to data of the XIII Geological Congress given in one of the latest bulletins of the Geological Committee, dated October 1, 1927, are estimated at 7,714,407 million tons. First place with regard to coal resources must be accorded to the U. S. A., whose deposits are estimated at 3,838,600 million tons; second place to Canada with 1,234,100 million tons; third place to China with 995,800 million tons, and fourth place to our Union with 552,300 million tons. Every year as the geological investigation and surveying of our territory progresses, the statistics showing coal resources undergo a change. Thus, in 1913, the total coal supplies of Russia were estimated at only 233,945 million tons — in other words, 17 years of investigation and prospecting resulted in more than doubling our known coal supplies. It was during this period that the famous Kuznetz Basin was discovered, with its billions upon billions of tons of coal. Even in the course of one year, 1926—27, our estimated coal supply increased by 66.5 billion tons. This increase must be credited to the more accurate estimates of the supplies of the Kuznetz Basin as the result of our geological investigations. It stands to reason that the continued thorough geological study of the territory of our Union will consider- 21
