The Le-U-le-taw (Farm of Le-U) mining area stretches from the NE (22°56'33"N. 96°31'28"E. 1,130 m ASL) to the SW (22°56'24"N. 96°31'36"E. 1,110 m ASL) covering a considerable area.
Cabochon and faceted-grade rubies of all qualities, often exceeding 5 ct are recovered from the alluvium. Bi-colored tourmaline, moonstone, quartz, topaz, danburite, star ruby (usually small in size) and spinel are frequently found.
In September 2001 the mines were closed. - Ted Themelis (2008) Gems and Mines of Mogok
