Description of Inta

Inta is a city in the Komi Republic of the Russian Federation. The city was founded in 1932 on the site of large deposits of energy coals discovered at the beginning of the last century on the territory of the current Inta region. The field was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the coal mine Ivan Nikolaevich Sorvachev with the support of the full member of the Russian Geographical Society P.P. Mataftina. Since 1940, the industrial development of the Inta coal deposit, which is part of the Pechora coal basin, began, at the same time the village Inta was formed as the base of a complex expedition to design mines. The name is given by location on the bank Big Inta. The hydronym, in turn, is supposedly from Nenets language "a place that is abundant in water, an overmoistened place."
