Located West of Kyauk-Pyat-That.
Rubies, sapphires and other gems are mined from the hillsides, employing mechanized myaw-dwin systems. Most of the stones are small, but occasionally larger stones are found (5 ct and more). Few of these gems are of fine quality. - Ted Themelis (2008) Gems and Mines of Mogok

Recently (2013) the mining has been extended at a larger scale on the north-eastern slope of Thurein-Taung (22°54'19"N, 96°22'26"E), but this extension still runs under the name of Ah-Sein-Taw.
