The Korean government sponsored an international invited design competition to create a master plan to revitalize and transform a former coal mining region in the mountains of eastern Korea into a Five Star Theme Hotel/Casino, Condominium, resort area, providing golf, skiing, retail, family entertainment and historic, cultural, and theme park facilities. Movement within the resort would be via gondolas and shuttle buses. The conceptual theme was based on the mining of coal , translated into the discovery and mining of gold.
