Antung (Dandong; 124.385E 40.123N), on the Chinese side of the Yalu River, was a small port that shipped lumber floated down the Yalu River.  The Japanese siezed control of the port on 19 September 1941, during the Manchuria Incident. They subsequently built hydroelectric facilities (Gishu; 75 MW) along the Yalu that turned Antung into an important aluminum production center.  Productive capacity actually outstripped availability of bauxite throughout the war.
