Salt mine a great opportunity for Titjikala?

Salt deposits in thick beds and domes have been found near Titjikala, on Maryvale Station, 120 kilometers south of Alice Springs.

The deposit is believed to be one of Australia's largest and and will provide its first underground salt mine, according to the managing director of Tellus Holdings, Duncan van der Merwe.
He says: "The project should also provide substantial research and business opportunities for Alice Springs  business and research institutions, including community development, Indigenous employment and  training, renewable energy and micro-business opportunities, such as bush foods.

Tellus is also looking at a processing and packaging plant for edible gourmet salts and other  specialty salt products that could be in Alice Springs.

Mr van der Merwe said salt mining is a low impact activity that would have a small surface footprint and little visual impact.

“Tellus is planning an initial mine life of 25 years, which is likely to be extended by another 25  years. However the underground deposit is so huge that the potential mine life is virtually limitless,” Mr van der Merwe said. (Media release)
