Morton’s salt mine continues to produce

GRAND SALINE — The Morton’s salt mine here is a large-scale operation, generating 450,000 pounds of salt for a wide assortment of products each year.

Aside from the 207 employees working at the five-day-a-week plant, the inner workings of the mine are rarely seen by the public.

Ed Fasulo, plant operations manager for the Grand Saline location, said the company quit doing tours of the facility in the 1960s for insurance liability reasons.

“It’s on many people’s bucket lists believe it or not — in this area in particular,” Fasulo said. “There are generations of employees who have worked here, and their families still talk about the nice chance they had to go underground and see the salt mines.”
