Sardinia : The Last Coal Mine in Italy
Nuraxi Figus
By Andrea Falletta
10 Apr 2014

The fate of the coal miners of Nuraxi Figus, Italy is more uncertain as their mine is on the verge of closing. The economy of the village relies on the Carbosulcis mine, which employs 500 people, but in the last decades, the coal mining industry in Europe has been declining. Some regions which have relied on mining now have to reinvent their economy to prevent their population from falling into poverty.

In August 2012 the miners occupied the mine, during a week after officials had announced it would be closed, although so far it has remained open.

Almost two years after the strike began, the demand for coal has collapsed. At Carbosulcis, the production has almost stopped. The mine, which has been opened for 40 years and costs 40 millions Euros to maintain each year, is expected to close in the coming years.

As required by European Union directives, there will be a gradual reduction of coal production down to zero from 2014 to 2018. The second phase, from 2018 to 2027, will include conversion of staff and facilities of the mine.

The village of Nuraxi Figus, which has survived thanks to the coal production, is stuck in an obsolete development model. The coal extracted is very poor quality and has a very low value on the market because of the high levels of sulphur it contains. Their only client is Enel, the Italian electric utility, which buys the mineral below the market rate. As a result, the mine receives public subsidies to cover the losses. This model is not economically viable as it maintains the population in low paid jobs in only one industry and that has prevented other sectors from establishing in the region. The workers and their families suffer the consequences of this system. They are also affected by the pollution from mining in the region
