In Jiao-zhi, the Tai-yuan Commandery Gold-mining Office was placed under the jurisdiction of Tai-yuan Prefecture. The Jia-xing Commandery Gold-mining Office was placed under the jurisdiction of Jia-xing Subprefecture and the Guang-wei Commandery Gold-mining Office was placed under the jurisdiction of Guang-wei Subprefecture. Initially, when the gold-mining offices were set up in seven commanderies, including Tai-yuan, they were not placed under fixed jurisdiction. At this time, the Provincial Administration Commission had said that in four of the commanderies, including Tian-guan, man were engaged in banditry and disorder and the roads were blocked. It noted that as Gold-mining Offices had been established in the three other commanderies, including Tai-yuan, it was appropriate to place them under specific jurisdictions. It was for this reason that these orders were issued.
