Yeongsan-eupseong is located at Seongnae-ri, Yeongsan-myeon, Changnyeong-gun, Korea. We investigated the petrological features of the stone materials used for the rampart, and estimated their provenances. The stone materials consist of andesitic rocks, granitic rocks and sedimentary rocks. In the preserved rampart the andesitic rocks are relatively abundant, whereas the large number of granitic rocks are used for restoration. Chaeyaksan andesite and Chusan andesite are thought to be the source

On the other hand the granitic rocks used for restoration are classified to be biotite granite. The sedimentary rocks show thermally metamorphosed feature and changed to hornfels. The source for the hornfels is the contact area between the sedimentary rocks and granitic rocks near the Yeongsan-eupseong.
