Transcript First of all, it is important to make a profound technological study of the various qualities of our non-ore raw materials, for here quality plays a highly important role. Only upon such basis will it be possible to group the different kinds of our raw materials properly and institute technical utilisation in our industrial plants. Next, we must take a detailed inventory of our non- ore raw materials, showing their geographical distribution over the territory of our Union. To this end, the geological map of our country must be supplemented by a geo- chemical map showing the distribution of chemical elements irrespective of their practical value. This should supply the basis upon which the map of our non-ore materials must be charted. I believe I have adduced sufficient facts to demonstrate the truth of the old conception that our country is not only vast, but abounds in natural wealth. I believe I have also substantiated my assertion that our knowledge about the great treasures stored in our soil and strewn over its surface is but of a general character exhibiting a lamentable dearth of detail and precision. True, our Soviet country has been richly endowed by Nature, but we must make use of all this wealth not merely to boast of it, but further our stupendous task of socialist construction, the beacon light which should inspire us all. But for a business-like approach to our natural resources we lack the requisite information. This is a handicap which must be overcome without delay. This irksome situation opens wide the door of possibility to the Ail-Union Academy of Sciences to reduce to practice its theoretical experience amassed during the two centuries of its existence, to conduct and institute scientific research work and place the erudition of its scientific staff at the service of all mankind in the world's first proletarian state where a new human society is already 71
