Transcript Recently there has been some progress made in Kazakstan as regards iron ores. Thus, in the Karkaralinsk district three deposits were discovered: Ken-Tube (magnetites), Togai I (iron blende), and Togai II (magnetites), whose stores are estimated at approximately 35 million tons. The Dashkesan iron ore deposits with total supplies of 176.5 million tons of magnetites having an iron content of 50 per cent are located in Trans-Caucasia, within the confines of Azerbaijan. Altogether, in all the principal iron ore regions enumerated above, we have an estimated total of 3,102 million tons of iron ore containing approximately 1.5 billion tons of pig-iron, thus exceeding somewhat the estimates given in the above-mentioned "Survey of Mineral Resources" for 1926-27, issued by the Geological Bureau. Since extensive operations can be carried out only on the big deposits, it stands to reason that the operations will have to be concentrated chiefly on Krivoy-Rog and next on the Urals and partly on the Kerch ores which are of very low quality. Clearly, we shall not manage without starting operations on the Kursk magnetites, and one can only welcome the fact that upon the initiative of Comrade Stalin, work has been renewed for prospecting that remarkable storehouse of mineral wealth. Should prospecting upon a large industrial scale give satisfactory results, we shall then have a third huge metallurgical base in the proximity of Moscow which will form one of the cornerstones in the edifice of Socialism that we are erecting. Manganese. Modern metallurgy requires great quantities of manganese, the consumption of which is ap- theless, the plans provide only for a full supply of Siberian ore to the Abakan plant, and for a 50 per cent supply to the second Kuznetz plant (Osinovsky). The rest of the metallurgical plants will have to use imported ore. 58
