Transcript I deem it irrelevant to recall here our recent debates in connection with the Tikhvin bauxites which were denounced by some as utterly worthless, declaring them to be not real bauxites, but bauxite-like clays. I may also mention in this connection that one of the members of the commission of which I was chairman a couple of years ago argued, frothing at the mouth, that it was far more advantageous for us to import bauxites from abroad than utilise our own "poorer" raw materials. On the other hand, it ought to be made clear that we also have substances in this country that are not to be found anywhere abroad. We have quite an exceptional variety of metal salts, the supplies of which are estimated at billions of tons. The absorbent qualities of our whiting clays are IV2 times stronger than foridine, although it requires preliminary treatment. The utilisation of the Khibina rocks is also a problem which calls for special scientific approach. The list of other non-ore raw materials we possess in addition to Glauber's salt, already mentioned, includes potash and magnesium, clays and kaolins, quartz and nephe- line materials, also decorative and building stones. These form the basis of our chemical, glass and pottery industries. According to Fersman, the problem of mineral raw materials for our industries is least of all a problem of geology or geo-chemistry, — it is rather a problem of technology and economics. What then are the resources of non-ore raw materials throughout the vast expanses of our Union? This cannot as yet be expressed in figures, because these deposits, as is true of the rest of our natural wealth, have been but little explored. For the present we must confine our discussion to the qualitative character of these supplies. 69
