Let me see if I understand you. The idea is to take sea water and make a big salt water lake where Death valley is. Death Valley is a very hot place. The water will evaporate, but the salt and other minerals will stay behind. The lake will become more and more salty, like the Dead Sea. Perhaps the minerals will accumulate on the bottom of the lake filling it and making it more and more shallow. Eventually, it might become Death Plain.
Or am I missing something?
Eventually this would result in a hypersaline lake or a salt pan as the water evaporates and leaves the salt it contains behind.
