GODERICH, Ont. — The recent blasts of winter weather that have had salt trucks out in force to keep traffic moving on Hwy. 401, are proving to be a boon for business at the local salt mine.

About half the 8,000 tonnes of salt used to clear Toronto’s roads last week after a system dropped 15-20 centimetres of snow on parts of Ontario, likely came from the Sifto mine in Goderich, mine manager Rowland Howe tells local media.

“The 401 corridor in Ontario is big business for us,” he says.

Salt vessels are still arriving at the Port of Goderich, and Howe says the mine plans to continue accepting them until the end of January.
