Old and new at Changhang Smelter. Old plant and new equipment are being dovetailed into a dramatic rehabilitation program at Changhang, Korea’s only smelter and ore refinery. The modernization of the smelter, which was undertaken by the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA) at a cost of over $1,550,000 in order to meet the increasing output of the metal mines and to assure for Korea more favorable foreign exchange for her metal exports, is now in full swing. Every effort is being made to utilize the existing resources of the smelter to supplement the new equipment that is being brought in.

Large-scale production of quality-grade flake crystalline graphite with a carbon content ranging between 87 and 90 percent started in the Republic of Korea in January 1959 at this modern new mill. The mill was built jointly by the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA), The Republic of Korea Government and the Shiheung Crystalline Graphite Mining Company of Seoul, which is the end user. Raw ore for the mill is now being mined from surface deposits which covered the hill on the left. The buildings to the right of the picture belong to a small, out-moded mill which turned out a low-grade product.
