Transcript commonest useful minerals. According to A. E. Fersman, the spot value of the output in 1928 amounted to something like 90 million rubles, and it should have increased by this time (1930-31) to 300 to 350 million rubles. I am sorry that I have no data at my disposal to check up whether the exploitation and utilisation of non-ore minerals did reach the figures submitted by Fersman. However, let us accept these figures. At any rate, these figures indicate an unsatisfactory rate of development of these branches of production, in our Union, which accounts for a shortage of these materials experienced in a number of industries, e. g., the building industry. To cite an instance of how a comparatively trivial circumstance may affect large operations I will state that boring for petroleum is sometimes stopped owing to a shortage of cement. Obviously, the most serious attention ought to be given to this problem, especially in view of the fact that all these raw materials may be found in abundance within the confines of our Union except a few substances, like diamond, borax, cryolite, rare earths, and thorium, which have not yet been discovered in this country. According to the opinion of so prominent a specialist on non-ore minerals as Fersman, our minerals in some respects are classed as somewhat inferior in quality to those abroad (phosphites) with districts scattered over wide areas. Only a few of our products evince the same general properties to which both American and west European technique has been adapted. Yet this should not discourage us by any means. On the contrary, by dint of profound and thorough application to the problem at hand we must arrive at the correct way of utilising our own raw materials instead of following the line of least resistance by importing such materials from abroad. 68
