The sea salt production is carried on here at 7 different factories with a total daily production of well above 1100 tons or 330000 tons per year.
 


The 7 different producers differ in quality with each other all these are located in or around the cosmopolitan city of Karachi, as being a port city, it enjoys excellent sea Image of sea salt on the shores of Pakistanshore of the Arabian Sea with very fast winds almost all round the year. The best quality amongst these are sometimes found to be as good as 98% pure NaCl and normally the quality varies between 95% to 98% depending on the season and individual factory management.

Reserves at Bahadurkhel in Kohat are estimated to be 10.54 billion tons.

The overall scenario here at the salt range mining site is that Image of a rock salt mine in Pakistan it is very very under utilized and the production here is too small keeping in view the deposits of this most important mineral.

Lake Salt

Image of a salt lake in PakistanPakistan is one of the very few countries which has been bestowed with all the three types of available salt in the world. Lake salt of Pakistan is excellent in quality and the quantity available is as much as you want . Previouslly it used to be a problem extracting deep from the deserts of Sind but now with the excellent road network the capacities are increasing by the day.

In certain locations transportation is done by special-desert trucks which can carry 10 tons of load at a time and work round the clock. The lakes are located some 300 km from the city of Karachi .At the moment a small quantity of 3000 tons is extracted from these 20 to 30 lakes on daily basis making the yearly average production to around 900000 tons.

There are three different sites from where lake salt is being extracted at the moment. First In the district of MirPurkhas there is a small town by the name of KHIPRO and thus salt extracted from here is known as KHIPRO salt. The second site is in the district of Badin and the salt extracted from this region is known as BADIN salt. The third site is in the region of Mithi district Tharparker The quality of all these region is very good rather excellent but keeps on fluctuating a little with the change of weather. Overall salt of a purity of 98% + is usually attainable throughout the year.

Hub salt has recently started its own harvesting activity at the ANKERIO salt lake where it is setting up its own up-gradation plant with an installed capacity of 2000 tons per day which will be in addition to already 700 plus tons per day of Hub Plant.
