Malagash Salt Mine - Nova Scotia. Canada's biggest salt mine, largest in the British Empire, goes all out in a spectacular war effort. This deposit, more than 100 miles long and 400 feet wide is the largest in northern hemisphere. It is snow white and 98.5% pure, contains more potash, another vital war chemical, than any other salt mine in the world save Stassfurt, Germany. These miners are dumping a car of rock salt into a skip, where it will be hauled to the surface for crushing.
