to the deep horizon of the two main producers. Another well which did not get black oil in any appreciable quantity has been drilled to 7,553 feet and is now being cemented. A further well has reached the depth of 3.020 feet. New sites have been selected for additional wells.

Salt.

There was a considerable increase in the production of salt in India in 1937, made up of large increases in the production in Bombay and Madras, with slight decreases in the production in Northern India and Sind.

The production in Aden was practically the same in 1937 as in 1936; the production in Burma showed a large increase.

The apparent decrease in the imports of salt in 1937 is due to the exclusion of the quantity of salt imported into Burma during the period April to December 1937, figures for which have not been received.

Saltpetre. Although complete statistics of production of salt petre in India are no longer available (see Rec. Geol. Surv. Ind., LXIV, p. 289), yet the export figures may be accepted as a fairly reliable index to the general state of the industry, for, excepting a few hundreds of tons required for internal consumption as fertiliser, most of the output is exported to foreign countries. The quantity exported increased from 162,808 cwts. valued at Rs. 11,47,437 (£86,273) in 1936, to 167, 147 cwts. valued at Rs. 11,17,814 (£84,048) in 1937.

Nevertheless, figures of production of refined saltpetre—without values--are available for tracts worked under the supervision of the Northern India Salt Revenue Department. The production figures for the financial years 1936-37 and 1937-38 are :

A certain amcunt of nitrate of potash is used for agricultural purposes on the tea gardens of India. During the War, when it was impossible to obtain supplies of imported potash, the amount of locally picduced nitiate utilised in this way reached an appreciable figure. The practice continued and the quantity estimated to have been absoiled for fertilising purposes on tea gardens in 1937 was 500 tons against 600 tons in 1936.
