The edges of the white spots appear to be very irregular, that would be against it being an artifact...They seem to be inside a crater, which might have protected the ice if it is ice...


From these pictures at those lowest altitude Dawn will drop to it looks like these are salt patches.

Or salt and ice brine... We'll see what's going to be the final word of the planetary geomorphologists

".....when we’d finally get our clearest view of the famous “bright spots”. Spectral observations have shown that the patches are consistent with a magnesium sulfate called hexahydrite that resembles the more familiar Epsom salts here on Earth. Scientists think these salt-rich areas were residue left behind when water-ice sublimated in the past. Impacts from asteroids could have broken into Ceres’ crust and possibly unearthed salt-rich ices. Exposed to the vacuum of space, the ice would have sublimated (vaporized), leaving the salt behind."

It looks like Nasa is concluding that these white areas are salt.

Finally read this on yahoo news. So maybe this solves the mystery.

When NASA’s Dawn spacecraft visited Ceres, the largest world in the asteroid belt, its brightest feature was a huge surprise. In the center of Occator crater, a large (but not the largest) feature on Ceres’ moon-like surface exhibits a series of bright, white spots along the crater floor. As Dawn flew closer, it was able to perform a distant chemical analysis, determining that this wasn’t ice or aliens, but rather salts that were so reflective. The dome-like structure is at a depth of 4 km (2.5 miles) below the surface, deeper than anything else known. But the big surprise, as new analysis shows, is that the salts are sodium carbonates, not magnesium sulfates, indicating that at least the surface ...

...sodium carbonate is good for indigestion, whereas magnesium sulphate would have been good for constipation.

Wonder when  are they going to mine that crater
