Transcript the basin to a point where this assurance becomes negligible and calls for intensified geological investigation.* The Minusinsk Coal Basin. The Minusinsk Coal Basin having an area of about 300 sq.km. is situated southeast of the Kuznetz Basin, in the upper regions of the Yenisei River where it is joined by the Abakan River. The capacity of this coal seam is about 1 km., its age dating apparently back to the Permian period. There are 44 coal layers, more than one-half of which are workable. The depth of individual layers is as much as 5 to 9 metres. In quality the coal is of the long-flame type and frequently yields caking coke. It has a calorific value of from 6,300 to 7,000 calories. The total deposits of the basin are estimated at about 14 billion tons, of which about 80 million tons are actual plus probable deposits. The present output is negligible. The construction of the Atinsko- Minusinsk Railway afforded an outlet for the coal from this basin to the Siberian trunk railway. The Irkutsk Basin. This basin is situated between Lake Baikal and the town of Nizhneudinsk along the Siberian trunk railway line. It is crossed by the Angara River and its left tributaries. Its total area, approximately equal to the area of the Kuznetz Basin, is 25,000 sq. miles. The coal layers are embedded in deposits of the Jurassic age. The number of workable layers has not yet been precisely ascertained but probably varies between 2 and 5. * Of the 400 billion tons of geological deposits of the Kuznetz Basin only 500 million tons have so far been prospected. In order to increase the output to 130 million tons by 1937, which means the sinking of 187 shafts, it will be necessary to prospect 167 districts comprising a total of 6 billion tons. This will necessitate the boring of about two million metres of shafting. It is not yet settled where mining villages had best be built and where shafts are to be sunk. Wherever building operations are started, coal is found; on the other hand, shafts may not be sunk because the ground has not yet been prospected. 28
