Transcript proaching half a million tons a year. About nine-tenths of the world's output of manganese goes into various manganese compounds of steel to give it special durability, to render it malleable and to purify it of sulphurous and phosphorous admixtures. The remaining tenth enters into chemical, glass and other industrial processes. Old pre- revolutionary Russia already occupied first place in world production and exporting of manganese. Known manganese deposits exist in the Caucasus, in the Urals, Siberia and Turkestan. The total supplies of manganese ore are estimated at 210 million tons. The largest of these is at Chiatura in Georgia, whose ore supplies are estimated at 100 million tons. In magnitude and the high quality of the ore, the Chiatura ore deposits are the richest of all known and prospected manganese deposits in the world. The manganese content in the purified ore is about 60 per cent. The Nikopol deposits situated in the district of the town of Nikopol on the Dnieper ranks second as regards resources and mining of manganese. The manganese content of this ore ranges from 35 to 57 per cent, and is, therefore, inferior in quality to the Chiatura ore. The Nikopol ore supplies are estimated at about 33 million tons. Manganese deposits are to be found also in a number of localities in the Caucasus and in the Urals, but I am not going to dwell on those deposits. I shall merely mention the existence of large manganese deposits in the Mai- kop-Laban district. The colossal manganese deposits of Chiatura, Nikopol and Laban fully assure the development of the metallurgical industry of our Union. Chromium. Chromium is another metal which plays a big role in the metallurgy of iron and steel, hardening them and reducing their malleability. Chromium is obtained from chloric magnetite, found chiefly in the Urals, where as many as 300 different deposits of this ore are 59
