Transcript During this period the figures may have changed for the better. I regret to say that I am not in possession of more recent data. However, judging from the statement made in the official report of the Geological Committee at the April Conference on Scientific Research Planning, when the Donetz industrial deposits were estimated to last a period of 12 years, there was no change for the better and the situation remained pretty much the same. Moreover, the aforesaid calculations were based on the coal output of 1926—27, which amounted to about 25 million tons, whereas the output has since more than doubled. Hence the catastrophic situation as regards geological prospecting in the Donetz Basin is quite obvious. Yet this basin, according to our Geological Bureau, "is the only coal basin within the borders of the U.S.S.R. which can be said to have been studied, if not exhaustively, at least with a satisfactory degree of thoroughness." The degree of thoroughness here referred to has been definitely characterised above. * Naturally, the calculated total geological deposits of the Donetz Basin do not represent a mythical figure; nevertheless these deposits should be made more tangible, so to speak, by means of detailed geological investigation, to correspond to the mounting coal requirements of the country in which Socialism is being built and will be completed in the near future. Given these figures of the coal deposits, if we apply the methods used to transform coal into liquid fuel by means of hydrogenisation, we shall solve also the problem of finding substitutes for oil and oil products by the time these supplies give out. One preliminary condition is indispensable: a proper rate of progress in prospecting and geological research work must be set and maintained. Second in size, in the European part of the Union, is the Moscow coal basin, which occupies a huge territory 24
