Transcript coal being worked, as tabulated by the Geological Bureau, which, at a contemplated annual output of about a million tons, promised duration of some 5 or 6 years. Since the output in this district is rapidly growing (from 1.8 million tons in 1930 to 4.6 million tons in 1931), the time limits suggested are exceedingly alarming. Coining now to secondary coal regions in the European part of the Union, mention should be made of the coal districts along the western slopes of the Ural mountains. Here the coal beds run parallel to the Ural slopes from the Chus River northward to the Cherdynsky region. The deposits of the Kizel district with estimated deposits of 263 million tons are now being worked. Anthracite coal is being mined in the Yegorinsky region on the eastern slope of the Urals. In the south, along the Orsk-Troitsk Railway, we have the Poltavo-Bredinsk deposits where bituminous and anthracite coal is mined. Besides bituminous and anthracite, brown coal (lignite) is mined in the Urals, in the Chelyabinsk region and in the Bogo- slovsky factory district. The total coal deposits of the eastern slope of the Urals are estimated at 528 million tons, including about 480 million tons of brown coal, or about 91 per cent. I am going to dwell on minor coal regions in the European part of the Union. Their total deposits do not exceed 20 million tons. The Kuznetz Basin. Western Siberia will in the near future become the centre of our coal mining industry. The most prominent field of operations here is one of the world's largest coal reservoirs, the Kuznetz Basin, situated on the River Tom between the city of Tomsk on the north and Kuznetsk on the south. The coal bed extends over more than 25,000 sq. km. The basin is of fairly complex tectonic structure, especially on its periphery. While the deposits are fairly smooth 26
