North-Kospashsky, Perm Region

Coal has been mined on the territory of Perm krai for over 200 years. The max of coal mining was reached in 1960 and was 12 million tons, later the amount of coal mining kept decreasing and there was no prospecting of new deposits. The reconstruction of mines started in 1996, and in 1997 their elimination.
