ABOUT ANCIENT MINING METALLURGY IN TUVA
 
A strange feeling arises when somewhere in a geological route in deserted places, sometimes among an impassable thicket one suddenly find out holes overgrown with ancient trees, dumps with fine fragments of copper ores of green malachite, dark blue azurite, and sometimes slag pieces near them. First of all you accept these traces of human hands for recent ones, but then suddenly you perceive that there is the evidence of the work of our far ancestors.

The idea that in the Baikal Lake which is national pride of our country, 20 % of the World or 90% of Russian fresh water reserves are concentrated has strongly taken roots in the mass conscience of the Russians . This idea (in full or in part) often appears in the Russian press. It has become so usual that one repeat it with almost no reflection.

HE SILENT EXILE
 
The Michail's Day in the Academgorodok has become a tradition. The ritual is based on an obvious sympathy of the inhabitants of our unusual settlement: the coincidence of the names of the two great scientists and organizers of science in Russia: Michail Lomonosov and Michail Lavrentiev. Another Michail, Speranski, could be ranged within the same series at no stretch. This great statesman was recognized in one's time an administrative genius of Russia. Among its merits, historians invariably mention his short, but rather efficient activity in the transformation of Siberia.
