Salt Mining include process of extraction of halite commonly known as rock salt from evaporate formations. Salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl) and is present in vast quantities in seawater, where it is the main mineral constituent.
The global Salt market was valued at $14.4 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $544.4 billion or 37.7% of the global market. And USA was the largest country accounting for $2.7 billion or 19.0% of the global Salt market.
Salt mining companies are utilizing multipurpose mining equipment to extract rock salt from an underground deposit. These equipment enables mining companies to control carbon emissions underground and increase productivity with reduced cost. For instance, Bernburg recently purchased two Sandvik LH621, a 21-tonne loader cum hauler, to increase its production and safety.
