Transcript WTe possess huge stores of salts, limestones, quartz and quartz materials, Glauber's salt, gypsum and asbestos. We possess considerable supplies of phosphorus, pyrites, sulphur, kaolin, fire-proof materials, magnesite, salts of potash and magnesium, fusible feldspar, sulphate of strontium (celestite), sulphate of barium (barite), chro- mite, salt of beryllium (glucin) and selenium, carborundum, pumice stone, grindstones, glauconite. graphite, colour-stones, marble, talc and talcum rock. We have medium supplies of bauxite, feldspar, mineral dyes, dolomite, compounds of titanium, salts of bromine and iodine, arsenic, radium ores, cyanite, asphalt, costly gases and helium, lithographic stone, ozocerite, chromic iron, and zirconium salts. We have poor supplies of soda, alunite, compounds of thorium, zirconium, bismuth and vanadium. No supplies of saltpetre and borax. As our exploring activities develop, we are compelled to modify this list in part and will continue to do so in future. Quite recently a considerable iodine content was discovered in the waters of the Nefte-Chala oilfields at the mouth of the Kura River. I have just received a telegram stating that the water in Pit No. 6 was found to contain 49 milligrams of iodine per litre. Borax is contained in the hot mud springs. The matter erupted by these springs must be analysed and no doubt will prove of interest and value. An investigation of the lakes in the Kulunda Steppe will probably soon alter the situation as regards soda, etc. It means that when it comes to non-ore raw materials, we are poor not in resources, but in knowledge of them, which is more or less the chief trouble with all our natural resources. In this domain as elsewhere we are confronted with a number of extremely urgent tasks. 70
