Lacustrine evaporite salt deposit mined for table salt.

NOTE: In the reference, this locality is listed twice with different coordinates. Apparently, one of the entries has been confused with a salt occurrence near Khwaja village in Bilchiragh District. The validity of both localities is confirmed by the geological map of Afghanistan, which indicates the individual deposits.
