UNKRA sparks increased production in Korea. As a part of its effort to help increase coal production in Korea, the UNKRA has engaged the services of British mining consultants and technicians to work with Korean mine managers, engineers and technicians in the rehabilitation and modernization of the coal mines. The Macha-ri coal field, located some 150 miles southeast of Seoul in the mountainous region of Kwang-do, is one of the principal coal mining sites being worked at present. There, a narrow-gauge railway brings coal from three high'level mines - Bamchi Nos. 1 and 2 Solchi - down to the entrance of the main mine, Pangyo, in the valley below. From there, coal from all four mines is carried by aerial ropeway 7-1/2 miles overland to Yongwol power station. Here: the Korean Deputy Superintendent discusses the day's coal production of the Pangyo mines with his Chief Engineer. Photograph 1797.
