On July 1, Juche 64 (1975), Chairman Kim Jong Il visited the Komdok Mine situated at the foot of Machon Pass, which is steep and rough.

As soon as he alighted from his train, Kim Jong Il met the officials and familiarized himself with the situation at the mine. Then he made for an ore-dressing plant and gave a pep talk to the workers there. After that he turned towards a pit.

The officials, his entourage and members of a travelling art propagation team tried hard to dissuade him from going down the pit.

But looking at them, Kim Jong Il said: Why can’t I go down there, when President Kim Il Sung has done so before and the miners are working there? If I am to stay on the surface, what is the point of my visit? We must go anywhere, no matter how distant or rough, if it is somewhere our precious workers are working. I have come to see the workers, but if I return without meeting them at their workplace, they will be sorely disappointed. So don’t worry about me and let us go down.

He put on a safety helmet and got on the mantrip.

When he reached the mine face, the exultant miners rushed to greet him, cheering. He shook their hands and inquired about their health.

“That you should come into this dangerous pit!” exclaimed an old miner, with feeling.

Kim Jong Il said, “I’ve been anxious to meet you miners.”
