Locality type:Peninsula


This page is a holding page for localities that are just listed in references as 'Korea' without specifying North or South - this is common in historical references prior to the partition of Korea in 1948.

If you can identify any of these locality names and confirm where it is situated, we can move them to the correct position in the mindat.org database.

Note: Some locality names here are the old pre-WW2 Japanese colonial locality names and we will eventually replace them with the modern Korean locality names.

See also mindat.org pages on North Korea and South Korea.
