A local railway which goes through an area rich in salt and non-ferrous metals in Northwest China’s Qinghai province was officially put into operation on Friday.

The 45.2-km Xi-Bei Railway links Xitieshan and Beihuobuxun in the Qaidam Basin in northwestern Qinghai, according to the Department of Transportation of Qinghai.

Qinghai has the most salt lakes in the country, with most distributed in the Qaidam Basin.
