Transcript ill the usual metallurgical way, and this brings them close enough to the group of non-ore raw materials here under consideration. Until quite recently little attention was given to these non-ore raw materials. Was it worth while to bother with deposits of clay, sand, building limestone and the like? Was this not "below the dignity" of a scholarly science such as geology? It was quite a different matter to study the geology of naphtha, or of coal, or of some other legitimate member of the geological family. But behold the annual world consumption now of this "step-child" of scientific research which, according to data given out by the academician A. E. Fersman, has climbed to a gross value of 5 billion dollars, which puts these non- ore raw materials on a level with the annual output of metal in point of value, while the gross weight of the annual output of these materials is now 750 million tons. The annual consumption of some of the more common kinds of these raw materials is indicated in the following figures: (a) stones, 200 million tons; total value, 600 million gold rubles; (b) sand and gravel, 300 million tons; value, 600 million gold rubles; (c) cement, marl, etc., 120 million tons; value, 400 million gold rubles. This gives you the world consumption figures. Let us examine now what degree of development in the exploitation and utilisation of these non-ore raw materials has been attained in our Union. In pre-revolutionary days non-ore raw materials were entirely neglected, in the sense that we remained satisfied with taking stock of the quantities used and estimating the available supplies and their value. Numerous production processes, e. g., of talcum, natural soda, sulphur, strontium compounds, etc., had not yet been introduced. It was only in the post-revolutionary period that some attempts were made at taking stock of the extraction of the 5* 67
