Transcript region. Further north, in the district of the Pechora River, oil was struck at a number of points, e. g., on the Malaya Kozhva River, and bituminous coal was located at the Tochilnaya mountain. The likelihood of striking oil in Chusovsk in the course of boring for salt has attracted great attention to the entire district and prospecting is in progress at numerous points. Much was made of the discovery of oil in Chusovsk and big and quick results were expected. But matters have been allowed to drift. Prospecting operations carried out in that district on an American scale and with American speed have shown that there are oil deposits in Chusovsk at the relatively small depth of 320-340 metres, connected with the porous limestones of the Upper Carboniferous age, but the deposits were found to be limited to an exceedingly small area. Later, when wells were dug, deeper indications of an extensive petroliferous area were found. Consequently, the last chapter on the Chusovsk district has not yet been written. We must patiently await the results of further borings in the deeper strata of the earth before rendering final judgment. West of the aforesaid district, between the Kama and the Volga Rivers, and on the Volga itself, there are a number of points showing signs of oil appearing either as thick black mineral oil oozing out of fissures in the rock formations (Sukeyevo on the Volga, Kamyshla on the upper reaches of the Sok River, a left tributary of the Volga) or in the shape of tar sand or asphalt. All these localities are certainly of importance from the point of view of prospecting, and prospecting operations are in progress at numerous points. North, on the River Ukhta, in the vicinity of Timan, the presence of oil was known long ago, and exploring and prospecting operations were carried out. Lately the Ukhta Expedition conducted work there. A steady flow of oil was found on the 42
