Iran's salt men hazardously exposed

Breaking News

The owners of the mine where the Zanjan salt men were discovered have renewed their contract with Iran's Mines and Industries Ministry.

The contract will enable the company to resume salt exploitation for another ten years, beginning this week, which could severely damage and ultimately destroy invaluable information about the historic mine.

As very few salt mummies have been found, Iran's salt men are considered extremely unique with the mystery surrounding the manner of their death adding to their intrigue.
