Background: Taoudenni (also Taoudeni, Taoudénit, Taudeni, Berber: Tawdenni) is a remote salt mining center in the desert region of northern Mali, 664 km (413 mi) north of Timbuktu. The salt is dug by hand from the bed of an ancient salt lake, cut into slabs and transported either by truck or by camel to Timbuktu.
