Prachaksinlapakhom (Thai: ประจักษ์ศิลปาคม) is a district (amphoe) in central Udon Thani Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Nong Han, Ku Kaeo, Kumphawapi, and Mueang Udon Thani.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) was established on 1 June 1997 by splitting it from Kumphawapi District. The creation became effective on 1 July 1997.[1]

Following a decision of the Thai government on 15 May 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were upgraded to full districts.[2] With publication in the Royal Gazette on 24 August, the upgrade became official.[3]

Administration[edit]

Huai Sam Phat and Na Muang Sub-districts are among five Udon Thani sub-districts to harbour mining operations of the Udon North potash mine, although the mine has met with local resistance.[5]
