The Goderich Salt mine, known as Compass Minerals’ is located 1,800 feet under Lake Huron.

It is the largest underground salt mine in the world. To put that into perspective, the mine is as deep as the CN Tower in Toronto is tall.

The Goderich plant has operated since 1867, after an unsuccessful search for oil uncovered a vast bed of rock salt under Goderich.

The salt that is mined is used for road salt throughout North America. You will continuously see large ships, trains and transport trucks coming in an out of the mine. Transporting salt to hundreds of communities around the Great Lakes and along the St. Lawrence Seaway.

 

Some of the salt is also processed a few kilometers away for retail distribution in North America. The salt is also sold in bulk to manufacturers making detergents, plastics, disinfectants and other products.
