The new owner of land that used to be owned and mined by the Carey Salt Company is in talks to buy out 32 homes in the area because of subsidence and sinkholes. They have offered homeowners the appraised value of the homes plus $10,000 and closing costs. Carey Salt Company mined the area from 1903-1998, before modern regulations. (Image and story by KWCH)
A colleague of mine (thanks Jamie!) sent me an email with this intriguing title. I have no idea where it originated, but it is an interesting compilation of some amazing photos and short descriptions of various natural and man-made "holes". A few sinkholes, glory holes, and of course open pit mines. By the way I didn’t write (or edit) this, just some minor formatting updates. Check it out.
