Transcript in the central portion, they are surrounded by a continous circular zone of folds. The capacity of the coal veins is as much as 7 to 8 kilometres. The number of coal layers varies from 40 to 60, of which 20—30 are workable. The depth of the layers range from 1 to 14 metres, while the total capacity of the coal layers is 104 metres. The coal of the Kuznetz Basin is very diversified in character, beginning with poor semi-anthracite and ending with dry long-flame coal. All the coals are renowned for their high technical qualities: purity, small ash and sulphur content, and high calorific value, even 8,000 calories. They differ considerably from the Donetz variety of coal in coking possibilities. Kuznetz "begins with a 25 per cent content of volatile substances, whereas the Donetz coals are coked with an 18—26 per cent content of volatile substances. Some of the Kuznetz coals yield a high grade metallurgical coke which will play a prominent part when the Ural-Kuznetz Combine, the second powerful metallurgical base of our Union, is organised. The coal supplies of the entire area have not yet been tabulated. In January, 1928, they were estimated at 400 million tons by the Geological Bureau, of which about one-half was anthracite (210 million tons) and the other half represented bituminous coal (190 million tons). The mining of coal in the Kuznetz Basin is entirely out of proportion to its possibilities. In 1926-27 the output was a trifle over 2.5 million tons, in 1930 it was increased to over 5 million tons and under the 1931 plan it was further increased to 10.7 million tons. As regards workable supplies, I may mention that a few years ago the situation here was better than in the Donetz Basin. According to our former production plans, the deposits under operation were to last about 20 years, and even 30-40 years for some of the pits. At the present time plans are in preparation to force the development of 27
