Le-taw, Bernardmyo, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin District, Mandalay Region, Myanmar

In 2003, a group of MGE-joint venture companies was formed for gem mining along the stream banks at Le-taw (Paddy Field), just south-west of Bernardmyo village. At the mining site (1631 m. ASL) aquamarine, ruby, sapphire, spinel, peridot and enstatite of small size and of varying qualities are found in the alluvium. By 2005 the mines were closed.
