The main coalfield here extends along the western shore for a stretch of 200 km., a strip of land 10 to 15 km. wide. The coal veins date from the Tertiary and the chalk age. The veins contain long-flame coal, semi-anthracite and other varieties. The total supplies are estimated at 2 billion tons. Kazakstan Coal.

The coal yields a caking coke; the deposits are estimated, according to data of the Geological Bureau for 1926-27, at upwards of 4 billion tons. I am not going to take up time with other, smaller deposits. The fundamental deduction naturally to be made after a resume of our coal resources is that, while we possess huge potential reserves of various kinds of coal, we must admit that they have been subjected to only a cursory study and been prospected, from the industrial point of view, to a still smaller extent. In fact, prospecting does not keep pace with the actual working of the coal mines, especially now that increased demands for coal are being made.
