Lansing representatives tour Cayuga Salt Mine

Lansing Town officials went 2,300 feet below ground as they toured the Cayuga Salt Mine Friday (9/11), and New York State Senator Pamela Helming toured the mine Tuesday. Mine officials offered the tour in the hope that it would help them understand the health and safety issues motivating the construction of a new 2,500 foot deep mine shaft about seven miles north of the mine's existing lakefront above-ground facility.

"The Town of Lansing and Cargill have a long-standing partnership and to that end, Cargill is committed to maintaining an open and transparent dialogue about our work at the mine," said Mine Manager Shawn Wilczynski. "We hosted the tours as an opportunity for elected Town of Lansing officials and Senator Helming to visit the mine so they could see our facility, ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of why the #4 shaft is vital for the safety and health of our employees."
