According to defector Kim Tae Ho, there is a mine called the "Hwangsan January Industrial Mine" in South P'yŏng'an Province. Kim claims that the uranium ore extracted from the Hwangsan Uranium Mine is shipped to the Namch'ŏn Chemical Complex (남천화학연합기업소) in P'yŏngsan-kun and to the Unjŏn-kun April Industrial Enterprise (Pakch'ŏn milling facility) for milling. This uranium concentrate is then sent to the August Industrial Enterprise in the Yŏngbyŏn Nuclear Complex for enrichment and fuel fabrication. However, the location of the Hwangsan January Industrial Mine is unconfirmed.
