Residents from Mogok and nearby areas used to mine rubies for generations, usually on a manageable scale with traditional manual methods, until it was restricted due to joint ventures between the ruling government and its close business associates about 20 years ago. Unscrupulous mining by joint ventures, using heavy machinery, has left the town with dumps and craters. According to official data compiled by the state-run Central Statistical Organisation, the total ruby production in the country was over 19 million kilograms in the 2012-2013 (April/March) fiscal year and over 43 million kilograms in the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
