Descriere: epa08573905 Picture showing original working clothes and boots aligned at the dressing room, near the shower room were miners used to wash after finishing their work, at the Petrila Mine Museum, in Petrila city, 310 Km north-east from Bucharest, in Jiului Valley mining site, 13 July 2020. (issued 30 July 2020) The former Petrila Mining Exploitation was closed and transformed into a museum in 2018, when the last coal wagon was symbolically removed from the depths of the mine. The reconversion of the Petrila Mining Exploitation was possible with the support of the Planeta Petrila association, as well as with the support of the local authorities. In the framework of the EU's Green Deal, the European Commission will make available 7,500 million euros for the coal mining regions of the continent hit economically and demographically by the destruction of jobs that led to the closure of the mines. 10%, 750 million, will go to Romania and especially to the Jiu Valley, the depression that runs through the Jiu river in the southern Carpathians and that was the engine of the national economy for decades thanks to the huge amounts of coal from its underground. Before the Romanian government gradually began closing its deficit and hyper-subsidized mines until the fall of Communism in 1989 in the late 1990s, there were 14 active mines in the Jiu Valley that employed more than 50,000 people. Today there are only four of those mines in operation that employ around 3,000 people and will be liquidated in the coming years.\r\nAccording to data from the Romanian National Statistical Institute, the population of the six mining towns that make up the Jiu Valley went from the nearly 170,000 inhabitants it had in 1997 to the less than 100,000 it has today, a drop of more than 40%.
