Macha-Ri Coal Mines: The Macha-ri coal field is situated in the mountainous region of Kangwon-do province, 150 miles southeast of Seoul. A narrow-gauge railway brings the coal from three high-level mines: Bamchi No.1, Bamchi No.2 and Solchi down to the entrance of the main mine, Pangyo, on the valley level. From there, the coal from all four mines is carried by aerial ropeway 7.5 miles overland to the Yongwol power station. As part of its effort to help increase Korean coal production, the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency has brought in British mining consultants to work with Korean mine managers, engineers and technicians in the rehabilitation and modernization of the coal mines.

School Metal Mine (continued). Coal Mines; Munyong-Eunsong Mine: The United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency devoted a large portion of its $8 million program of development of natural resources to the increase of coal production. Domestic production of coal is of paramount importance to the economy of Korea. The rehabilitation of South Korea's coal mines, under direction of UNKRA furnished technicians of Powell-Duffryn Technical Services (British) has resulted in greatly increased output, and quantities of modern equipment imported under the UNKRA program have improved efficiency in coal production in South Korea.

Community Development Employment: The United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency initiated in 1953 a program for Community Development Employment (with the assistance of a specialist from the Technical Assistance Administration) whereby villagers were encouraged to utilize their spare time to undertake community improvement, such as irrigation and flood control projects; construction of bridges and roads; installation or repair of public wells, drainage systems, sewers, etc.; land reclamation for cultivation. Villagers have contributed approximately 600,000 man-days to approximately 500 projects. UNKRA has contributed a total of $60,000 (HW 21,000,000) toward the implementation of this program.

A new Merchant Marine Academy, built by UNKRA at a cost of $350,000 on Yongdo Island, off the tip of the Korean peninsula, opened its doors last November. The academy stands on a bluff overlooking the Strait of Korea and consists of 17 modern steel and concrete buildings, with accommodations for 400 students. All the equipment necessary for complete nautical courses was also provided by UNKRA; a further allocation of $90,000 was made by the Agency this year to continue technical assistance for two years and to purchase additional equipment and supplies. Various organizations interested in the project have given subsidiary apparatus. The curriculum of the academy is modelled closely on the training programme followed at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York.
