Transcript ably increase the total of our known supplies. Thus, geological research the last few years has resulted in the discovery of the Petchersky coal-bearing region in the Northern Urals; in the basin on the Yenisei River between its right tributary and the Upper and the Lower Tunguzka, a huge coal basin, hardly explored, occupying an area of 800 to 900,000 sq. km., or an area 40 times the size of our Donetz Basin, was discovered. Our very latest investigations have uncovered the existence of the very rich Karaganda coal region in Kazak- stan, which is of especial importance now in connection with the construction of the second All-Union metallurgical centre to rise in that region. The coal basins now under exploitation have not been exhaustively studied. Even our famous Donetz Basin has not been fully studied, let alone the other more recent coal districts. Numerous coal fields are known to exist within the confines of the U.S.S.R., chief among them being the Kuznetz Basin, followed by the Donetz, Irkutsk, Moscow, Minusinsk, Kazakstan, and Sakhalin deposits. Of utmost importance as regards quantity and quality of coal produced is the Donetz Basin, situated in the Ukraine, in the southern portion of the European part of the Soviet Union. It occupies an area of 20,000 sq. km. and holds coal-bearing beds abounding in carbon to a depth of 2.5 km. This thick bed contains about 200 layers of coal, of which 49 have been found suitable for exploitation. In general the coal seams under exploitation are 15—18 metres deep. The remaining layers are of such poor coal content that they cannot be profitably exploited. The total deposits of the Donetz Basin on October 1, 1927, were estimated at approximately 70 billion tons, divided into basic categories as follows: anthracite, about 40 billion tons; bituminous, about 30 billion tons. 22
