Transcript industry lies along the line of dressing. Geological investigation annually necessitates modifications of our estimates, and also our ideas of the quality of the Ural ore. Within the European part of our Union, in the Moscow Region, there is also a great iron ore region comprising numerous deposits of brown ore, more rarely feldspar, with an average content of about 40 per cent of iron. The total deposits of the iron ores are immense: the actual and probable supplies reach 653 million tons, and the possible supplies are estimated at about 726 million tons; but all these veins are scattered and broken up into many small units and therefore have to be operated on a small scale. The most important region is Lipetsk with its 11 million tons of actual and 680 tons of possible supplies; next in importance is Tula with its 500 million tons of probable supplies. Ore deposits were known to exist in our northern region for many years past. There is a great future in store for the Murmansk deposits of magnetic and iron blende. The total supplies are tentatively estimated at 16 to 20 million tons. In the same district there are also lake swamp ores with a total reserve of up to 16 million tons. Siberia is relatively poor in iron. The Telebes deposit in the Kuznetz Basin, situated 60 km. southeast of the town of Kuznetz, is the most prospected and studied district. Originally the supplies there were estimated at 50 million tons, but prospecting by Prof. M. A. Usov has resulted in reducing the supplies to 2.5 million tons. The total supplies of iron ore in Siberia to date are estimated at approximately 25.6 million tons.* * Over the entire territory of West Siberia the iron ore supplies of the A and B groups are estimated at 23.9 million tons, and of the C group at 31.7 million tons; altogether, 55.6 million tons. Yet, the metallurgical plants to be constructed under the plans of the second Five-Year Plan will need about 12 million tons of ore annually. The existence of ore in Siberia is unquestionable.
