The mining area at Yadanar-kaday-kadar (Millions and Billions) is situated near the village of West Kyauk-pyat-that. At Yadanar-kaday-kadar, the Union of Myanmar Economic Holdings Limited operates 2 major gem-mining sites: Worksite #1, formerly known as Loke-khet-inn, and Worksite #2, known as Lone-cho. In November 2003 the gem mining operations continued uninterrupted. The principal rocks are syenite, diopside marble and other types of marble.
The highest level of gem production recorded at the Yadanar-kaday-kadar mines was in March 1997, when more than 180 kg of mixed gems were produced; the lowest in November 1996, when the yield was only 60 kg of mixed gems. - Ted Themelis (2008) Gems and mines of Mogok.
