Transcript Caspian region, the Turkoman Republic, e. g., the district of the Chikishlar mud-bubble. It is hard to explain the almost total lack of prospecting in the vast Ural-Emba region covering an area of over 100,000 sq.km. in which over a hundred of those dome-like eminences already referred to indicative of the presence of oil have been recorded. Of these numerous mounds only two are being exploited on an industrial scale, viz., the Dossor and the Makat, to which a new Baichunas oilfield has lately been added. Prospecting is carried on at only a few points on these numerous mounds: in the Karaton, Iskin, Novobogatmsk, and Temir regions, and at the Keikebas oilfield, while the remaining mounds, despite unmistakable evidence of oil deposits, are entirely ignored. Yet, as I have already pointed out, geophysical investigation has established the connection between these dome-like mounds and salt deposits which renders them geologically akin to the famous salt mounds on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico that are important sources of oil. Energetic and boldly conceived prospecting may develop the Ural-Emba regions into a huge oil producing region, good for millions of tons. All prospecting activities should be concentrated heavily upon that area, especially as it has a direct bearing on the Ural- Kuznetz problem. In the event of successful prospecting the Ural-Kuznetz Combine will be supplied with oil and petroleum products from the eastern section of the Ural- Emba region. Along the western slopes of the Urals a strip of land with unmistakable traces of oil extends over a distance of upwards of 2,000 km. The presence of oil near the town of Sterlitamak has been ascertained. Oil was obtained from a number of wells dug at the Chusovsk settlements. Signs of oil made their appearance in one of the shafts drilled in the Kizel coal region, and also in the Cherdyn 41
