Rădăuţi-Prut is also a border crossing point between Moldova and Romania.
The only modern flint mine in Romania is located at the edge of Miorcani. Although archaeological evidence indicates that flint from this formation was collected from the Prut, Raut and Dniester rivers as early as the Palaeolithic, there is yet no evidence of mining the material until the 19th century. The nodules of flint extracted from the Miorcani flint mines are used to help grind sand for use in glass and ceramics production. The mines are currently administrated by Mindo S.A.
