ABSTRACT
Jiu Valley mining plays an important role in the energy sector of Romania. For joining the general and sectorial policies of EU and for accomplishing the overall economic and social balance of the country, the hard coal mining from Jiu Valley has undergone and continues through an extensive reorganization process. The mining reorganization mainly focused on reducing the production capacity while reducing headcount. Given the volume of industrial hard coal reserves, in the context of increasing worldwide electricity consumption, it is necessary to continue the mining of this resource, whilst pursuing economic efficiency of this activity.

Keywords: mining basin, hard coal, mining, reorganization, capacity, productivity.
