Saltmaking

Building Levels

Level 1 - Brine Mining Pit

Brine wells are where solidified salt is mined. It’s an unpleasant and hazardous job, but perfect for the underclasses.

Salt mines, like any kind of mining in the world, is a perilous vocation - although the Dwarfs are far better at it than most. The largest salt mines can be found near Nordberg in Ostland and delve deep into the north-eastern face of the Middle Mountains, where large deposits of pure salt rocks can be found.

Salt resource production: 20 barrels

Level 2 - Brine Mine

Larger brine deposits need more intensive mining, so more pits delving ever deeper into the ground.

Level 3 - Saltworks

These facilities are used for breaking down and grinding brine, as well as extracting salt from bodies of saltwater.

Salt works are often located near saltwater lakes or the coast. As well as having great grinding machinery for pulverising rock salt, as developed by the Dwarf Engineers' Guild or at the workshops in Altdorf, they may also contain salterns – isolated saltwater bodies that use evaporation to filter it.
