Not Many People Know About The City 1200 Feet Below Detroit
Detroit has been one of the cities hit hardest by recession.However, at
one point in its history, Detroit had a very large working class
industry right under their feet, underneath their city’s streets.
Some in the conspiracy area feel these tunnel possess a far more
sinister reason for their existence, to hide and shelter the elite in
Teotwawki (The end of the world as we know it). Detroit had a very large
salt mine that was basically an underground industry underneath their
city. It was over 1,500 acres big and had over 100 miles of roads making
up this underground salt mine.
This mine stretches from Dearborn all the way to Allen Park.
The mines were owned and operated by The Detroit Salt and Manufacturing Company. It was booming from the early 1920s up until 1983, when it was forced to close due
to the falling salt prices. When business was good, they offered public
guided tours, which was very popular with school groups. You can still
see the entrance at 12841 Sanders Street, but it’s only open for
delivery trucks. Read further to see exactly what they are delivering.
the Detroit mine was producing 8,000 tons of rock salt each month,
mainly for the leather and food processing industries. An increase in
manpower, money and equipment was paying off in a big way. Workers
turned electric locomotives, mechanical shovels and electric power to
help alleviate the physical demands of mining. These advancements in
technology pushed the Detroit mine to even greater productivity.
In 1922, the company began to dig a larger, second shaft to increase
the rate of hoisting rock salt to the surface. Within three years, the
second shaft was in operation, leaving the first shaft to haul men and
materials. Every piece of equipment used today has been lowered down the
second shaft. Due to the shaft’s narrow openings, most equipment is
disassembled and lowered piece by piece, then reassembled in a machine
In 1983, International Salt closed the mine’s operations. Two years
after the closure, Crystal Mines, Inc., purchased the mine as a
potential storage site. In 1997, the Detroit Salt Company, LLC,
purchased the mine from Crystal Mines, Inc. and began salt production in
the fall of 1998. Although the leather and food industries were once
large customers to the Detroit mine, road deicing salt is the only
product the mine currently provides. The Detroit Salt Company, LLC,
employs the latest mining techniques, making it one of the safest, most
modern and efficient mine in the world.
