Wang Saphung (Thai: วังสะพุง; IPA: [wāŋ sā.pʰūŋ]) is a district (amphoe) in the central part of Loei Province, northeastern Thailand. The district has been the site of a long-standing dispute between the villagers of Ban Na Nong Bong and its environs and Tungkum Limited, a subsidiary of Tongkah Harbour PCL. Tungkum extracts gold from an open pit mine in district and has been charged with environmental destruction by many of those living nearby.
The district is subdivided into 10 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 141 villages (muban). Wang Saphung is a subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of the tambon Wang Saphung and Si Songkhram. There are further 10 tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
