Yeah, you can go now. it's not restricted area anymore in this government. But you need to ask permission first so that you can get some precautions before going to there. Sometimes they said no if there are some fights between the central government and rebels.. 

 

I think you need to read this article about their experiences to jade mines.. http://www.ruby-sapp...green-line.htm

This is what really happened in Hpakan. One of the famous local media disclose the photos last week.. Some says, the china team was doing twice more than normal rate so that they can take advantage before policy changes.. (Some think the mining policy will change when the new government set up)

And this is about the news written by the reuters 3 hours ago... I think it'll be very interesting if you can go now. :) Don't forget to share your experiences if you can. :)

 

Chinese jade miners in overdrive ahead of new Myanmar government

 

sing heavy earth-excavators and explosives, miners have been tearing into Myanmar's northern hills in recent months, in a rush to excavate more jade from the world's richest deposits of the gemstone before a new government takes office next year.
 
Acres of forest have been felled, leaving behind craters, barren cliffs and a web of dirt tracks in the once-picturesque Kachin hills as the Chinese firms that dominate the jade business step up mining and aggressively seek new concessions.
 
They are anticipating the multi-billion dollar industry could change once Aung San Suu Kyi's election-winning National League for Democracy (NLD) party takes office with a promise of clean governance, those in the trade say.
 
The NLD has said it will bring in rules and competition and crack down on rampant smuggling that deprives the government of hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue, but skeptics doubt it will be able to do much in the remote, rebel-infested region.
