Dry lake deposit

Mineral deposit containing an accumulation of evaporite minerals from the evaporation or from the drainage of a saline lake. As the water gets exhausted, the minerals it is rich in remain, increasing in content, and eventually all that is left is accumulation of the mineral that was once present in the water.
See also dry lake and saline deposit.
