Regarding Lump of Coal as Treasure

One day in August Juche 98 (2009), Chairman Kim Jong Il visited the February 8 Jikdong Youth Coal Mine.

He went round various parts of the coal mine and dropped in at the room for general relief map, designed for getting a view of the whole remodeled mine.

Being told that a breakthrough was made for producing tens of millions of tons of coal at a newly-developed coal field, he said with pleasure that the coal mine is very promising.

Touching a lump of coal with his hand like precious treasure, he learned in detail about its calorific value and use.

Officials of the coal mine expressed their deep gratitude to Kim Jong Il showing warm care for the coal miners who devote themselves to the coal production at underground cutting faces with the single mind to make a great contribution to the country. -0- (Juche112.11.15.)
