Transcript fined to oil wells under exploitation or to prospected regions which can be exploited on an industrial scale. These are the so-called prepared and prospected oil reserves. These figures are more or less close to the facts. As for prospective oil deposits which may subsequently be discovered in the same territories during the process of exploitation, as the boring gets deeper, such reserves belong to the realm of conjecture. For instance, in the Surakhan oil region there are possibilities of very extensive oilfields being discovered in the lower depths of that territory. Finally, there is a fourth category of so-called possible reserves, i. e., of oilfields that may be discovered as the result of prospecting for new territories. This group is quite vague in character. To this group belongs a number of oil-bearing districts on the Apsheron Peninsula situated in the vicinity of the existing oilfields. The estimates of the oil resources so far published take into account all the categories of sources of supply; in other words, the total resources are given of which the prepared and prospected portions constitute but a very small fraction. Now while our estimates of our resources of such useful solid minerals as coal and iron ore result in figures greatly at variance with the actual facts, owing to the paucity of statistical and other scientific data, our information on our liquid mineral wealth is in still worse shape, as oil, unlike coal or iron, is often struck as a result of a mere whimsical freak of chance, so that any conclusion arrived at as to our liquid mineral wealth bears but a remote relation to reality. Without going into a minute critical examination of the existing methods of estimating oil deposits, I must emphatically declare that the two chief methods now applied — the bulk method, and the method based upon the 32
