Transcript Useful Non-Ore Minerals. I have already said that for the successful completion of our socialist construction we shall need huge quantities of materials of various kinds: metal, coal, petroleum and the consumption of huge volumes of power of various kinds. In the preceding survey of our natural power and mineral resources we indicated the sources to be worked to secure the necessary supplies of coal, natural gas, peat, water power, wind power, ores of iron, manganese and other metals. But the country that is building Socialism requires, and will require in ever larger quantities, also materials of a different kind to which little attention was paid in the past, either because they are exceedingly common (e. g., clay, sand, etc.) or because until quite lately we had little or almost no knowledge of them (thorium, vanadium, etc.). Not so long ago we issued the slogan of the chemification of our country, and in order to carry out this slogan we shall need: salt, soda, Glauber's salt, bo- racic salt, potassium salts, saltpetre, sulphur, dolomite, magnesite, limestone, alunite, fusible feldspar, bauxite, barite, celestite, apatite, gypsum, chloric magnesium, pyrites, quartz, aerial gases, carbonic acid, arsenic compounds, etc. Moreover, we have decided to build good roads and to start with overtaking at least Western Europe, if not America, but to carry out this task we shall require: sand, gravel, mortar, asphalt, clay, granite slabs, flint, fused basalt, etc. When we say that the whole of our country is "in the very thick of building operations," it is no metaphor but a concrete statement. We are building factories, mills, workers' villages, dwellings for workers in towns and in state and collective farms. All this requires huge quantities of sand, gravel, brick, gypsum, shale, crystallic substances, marble, magnesite, talcum, rotten-stone, infusorial earth, etc. 5 e 65
