Kim Ryong Hung, Professor, PhD and section chief of the Resources Science Faculty of Kim Il Sung University, is a competent scientist in the field of marine geology.

One of many successes he has achieved in solving numerous sci-tech problems arising in different sectors of the national economy is a salt production method based on underground ultra-brine.

One year he happened to read a short article on underground ultra-brine on an international academic journal, and thought of using the brine to solve the salt problem requiring urgent settlement for the industrial development of the country.

His idea was supported by his research group, and he soon started the research project. As there was no basic technical information about the existence of underground ultra-brine in the country, it was an uphill task from the beginning, but he did not waver.

He proposed a scientific hypothesis that Korea surrounded by the sea on three sides might well have such saline water and made an in-depth study of the formation of the West Sea of Korea and the historical process of its evolution to corroborate basic information piece by piece.

Finally, he discovered an underground ultra-brine field at a salt works for the first time. He conducted research in real earnest, and provided a firm scientific guarantee for producing much more salt than other salt works on the west coast of the country.

It was a valuable success of registering another item on the list of the country’s natural resources. The paper he wrote on underground ultra-brine at that time drew great interest of the relevant academic circle.

Besides, he solved sci-tech problems arising in the Koam-Tapchon railway construction project, and played a big role in opening up a vista for making a more effective use of submarine resources. He also authored several books on geology and trained many able technical personnel in the field of marine geology. And he was awarded dozens of certificates of registration and introduction of state sci-tech hits, patents and certificates of registration of programs.

“Many people call us geologists pioneers. Without resting on our laurels, we will perform our duty as pioneers by finding out more natural resources conducive to the prosperity of the country and the improved living standards of the people,” Kim Ryong Hung said.

He continues to explore for more natural resources in the coastal areas.
