The single concession mine is located at the northern most and lowest point of the Thurein-taung ridge. The mine has been known for many years, producing rubies and sapphires of small size and fine quality. The gems were recovered from the alluvium using the myaw-dwin mining scheme. - Ted Themelis (2008) Gems and Mines of Mogok

NOTE: According to information of local miners, Man-taw-bin (and not the very close Tha-Yet-Pin-Pyint) is the real hibonite locality.
