North Korean authorities recently ordered more personnel to help accelerate recovery efforts focused on Gomdok Mine, which suffered damage during typhoons earlier this year.
According to a source in South Hamgyong Province on Friday, North Korean authorities ordered the Ministry of Social Security, Ministry of State Security and the Korean People’s Army to increase the number of personnel at the recovery site by 20%.
The source told Daily NK that both civilians and soldiers are hard at work at the mine making repairs, but North Korean authorities believe that their work is progressing too slowly. ......
