The country of Myanmar opened up to the outside world a little over three years ago. As part of that process, many of the industries in the country changed hands from state owned to private. Such was the case with large-scale gold mine, which had formerly been explored by a Canadian company with mining experience and restored under the government to indigenous control. In early September 2011, tender bids from citizens were invited for the concession rights of the mine. There had been about 300,000 illegal miners working in the restricted area, but were being kicked out as the new operator took over the mine. There were many challenges, each answered by trial and error of the National Prosperity Gold Production Group. One of the current challenges is to maintain continuous production to fulfil the payment schedule to the government. This case is a constantly unfolding situation of sense making that the National Prosperity is trying its best to successfully operate the mine.
