There are indications of bismuth blende deposits in the Caucasus, near the village of Keidy, Soviet Republic of Daghestan. Antimony is the most brittle of metals; it is used in combination with lead and bismuth in the casting of printers' type, in vulcanising automobile tires, preparing dyes, in pharmacy, etc. The ore is found in nature as antimony blende. Deposits are located in the Urals, the Caucasus, Turkestan, and Trans-Baikalia, but none of these deposits have been much explored. Vanadium is added to steel, considerably enhancing its resiliency.

Of great importance is the vanadium mine located at the Tuya-Muyan Pass in Ferghana which supplies the metallurgical works of the Urals. All the aforesaid metals are used as admixtures to other metals, chiefly to steel to which they impart highly esteemed special properties. Copper.
