Masan-dong
3910'00"N 12549'00"E
Maram Materials Corporation

The Maram Materials Corporation in Masan-dong is said to be one of at least two primary chemical weapons storage facilities, with the other being located at Anbyon.

The Masan-dong location is ambiguous, since there are several populated places with this placename, the location of one of which is not obviously inconsistent with one of the CW storage site locations on the ROK maps, the identity of which is otherwise obscure.

Of these various possibilities, this facility is almost certainly located northeast of Pyongyang at the Maram railway station near Pyongsong.
