THE successive Five Year Plans in the Soviet Union have been accompanied by a vigorous development of geological science, and new mineral wealth is being discovered almost daily by the 6,000 geologists who are employed in prospecting over the whole vast area of the U.S.S.R. Soviet deposits of oil, coal, peat, iron, manganese, gold, potash salts and phosphates, are among the largest in the world.
