Transcript known to exist. The character of these deposits requires complex and costly prospecting operations before we are able to ascertain with any degree of reliability what amount of chromium is contained in them. At any rate, these supplies should suffice to fill our wants of this essential mineral in metallurgy and chemistry for many years to come. There are yet other metals required in metallurgical processes besides those already discussed, viz., nickel, cobalt, tungsten, molybdenum, bismuth and vanadium. Nickel. Nickel ores are found chiefly in the Urals where, in the nickel zone stretching for about 30 kilometres, there are deposits of nickel ores estimated at approximately 650 to 660,000 tons with a nickel content of 3 to 4 per cent; also from 1.5 to 2 per cent (poor ores). Cobalt deposits of more or less industrial value are so far not known to exist on the territory of the Soviet Union. Tungsten, which has acquired great importance in technical processes in recent years (in the production of higher grades of special steel, electric lamp filaments, X-ray electrodes, phonograph needles, etc.), is found in the Urals, in Trans-Baikalia, and in 1921 tungsten ores were discovered also in Kazakstan. Molybdenum belongs to the group of rare metals and is used to produce durable filaments for electric lamps and appliances, and also in radio sets; its chief use, however, is in metallurgy for the production of special brands of steel. The ore is usually known as molybdenite, small quantities of which are to be found in various localities in the U.S.S.R. Of particular industrial importance are the Trans-Baikalian deposits along the River Chika and in the Ussuri region, with visible supplies of 348 tons. Bismuth is used in smelting fusible metals, in the dyeing and glass industries and in medicine. The prin- 60
