Salt has been produced by evaporation of artificial brines obtained by forcing water through injection wells to rock salt beds of the Salina Group at 1,400 feet, then returning the saturated solution to the surface.

Bedford Shale

Age: Late Devonian (358.9 - 382.7 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Bedford Shale

Description: Secondary unit description from USGS Geologic Names lexicon (ref. MI016): Bedford Shale and Berea Sandstone are not exposed in MI. They record, in the subsurface, a southwestward growth of a deltaic system into the Antrim sea during Kinderhookian time. The Bedford Shale is a bluish to light gray, silty shale that becomes sandy in its upper part and has a gradational contact with the overlying Berea Sandstone. It is commonly 15 to 30 m thick and thins and becomes fine grained to the west, where it intertongues with the Antrim. Reaches a maximum thickness of 76 m in the Michigan thumb area.
