With all the salt mines out there and with the methods being used its the same as fracking for oil. No wonder there are quakes.

The truly vast salt deposit is, at this point, a mere 600 feet down. The earthquake epicenter is an estimated 3.1 miles down. Salt mining is either done by conventional mining (as seen in an episode of Dirty Jobs) or by pumping hot water into the middle of the deposit, pumping up the brine, and evaporating the water. We also have oil fracking going on. Kansas has produced, and is producing, a lot of oil.
