Title: The salt-makers of Manitoba : a study of the use of the natural saline deposits
Authors: Petch, Virginia Phyllis.
Issue Date: 1-Aug-1990
Abstract: The objective of study in archaeology was to examine the saline springs and salt flats within the Manitoba Lowlands Saline Waterbelt aa a resource for salt production. Field and archival data identified four groups of people who used the saline springs to make salt: the prehistoric Natives; the early fur traders and explorers; the Metis and the early industrialists. Although archaeological evidence for prehistoric salt-making was weak, the historic record demonstrates knowledge and use of salt.
