Transcript important that we possess metals used in these branches of industry (copper and aluminum). Concessions to money currency, while we are surrounded by capitalism, compel us also to pay attention to the so-called noble metals: gold, platinum, silver; but later, in communist society, these will forfeit their importance as "sacred idols" and will serve the more prosaic needs of mankind. Iron. The smelting of pig-iron increases year by year in our Union. As late as in 1926—27 our 49 smelting plants turned out altogether about 3 million tons which was about 70 per cent of the 1913 output on the territory of the present Soviet Union. In 1930 we smelted 5 million tons of pig-iron as against 4.2 million tons in 1913; the 1931 plan provides for the smelting of 8 million tons, which is nearly twice the pre-war output, and by the end of the first Five-Year Plan an annual smelting output of 17 million tons is contemplated. Such a programme compels us to deal in all earnestness with the question of our iron ore supplies, taking the necessary steps in time to prevent any hitch in production. The world's supplies of iron ores, tabulated in 1926 by O. R. Kuhn, are estimated at 243,361 million tons, including 65,804 million tons of probable, and 176,557 million tons of possible supplies. Our share of this total, without taking stock of the Kursk and Krivoy Rog iron- ore quartzites, amounts to 1.1 per cent, that is, our total supplies are estimated at 2,677 million tons, while with the inclusion of the Kursk and Krivoy Rog quartzites, according to the Geological Bureau's "Survey of Mineral Resources" for 1926-27, our share rises to 16 per cent, that is, to about 37 billion tons. The investigation of the Kursk magnetic ores is still far from complete, and it is too early to base operations on definite figures; nevertheless a preliminary calculation allows us to assume that the iron ores of the Kursk mag- 55
