Old salt still good?

I have a large plastic pail (160 gallon mix) of Reef Crystals that I bought in 2008 but never used. The pail has never been opened. Probably not going to set up another SW tank for a year or two and I'm wondering if the salt is still good or if I should trash it and start over when I actually get going (additional factor is I'm moving and it's HEAVY!)

Its probable ok but your not going to use it for another two year which will make it 7 years old I would just chuck it rather then chance it.

If there is no moisture in it, then it's probably still fine. Otherwise I don't see what could happen to a sealed bucket of it.
