Geology Picture of the Day – Salt Block

Today’s geology picture of the day comes from our friend (and sometimes contributer) Ron Schott. It’s a picture of a large block of salt from the Kansas Underground Salt Museum. The museum is located 650 feet below the surface, in an active salt mine near Hutchinson, Kansas.

I’ve never been fortunate enough to take a trip into an active mine myself. It sounds like it would be a fascinating (if not, enveloping) experience.

Here is some random history on another salt mine, located beneath Lake Peigneur, Louisiana. An exploratory rig (looking for oil) on the lake accidentally drilled through an active salt mine in 1980. Disaster ensues. Fortunately, no lives were lost.
