The restoration process has started for the ore separation site, the industrial facility that was the sorting place of mined ore from Gwangmyeong Cave (Siheung Mine) from 1912 to 1972.

'Dogonae', The Road of Salt

Dogonae Hill is now closed due to the development of transportation infrastructure, but it was used for citizens of Gahak-dong to go to Siheung 2-dong, Guro-gu in Seoul and Seolwol-ri where the Seomyun Elementary School and Seomyeon Office are. Furthermore, it was an important hill used when salt sellers from Ansan went to Yeomchang-dong in Seoul to sell their salt.
