The salitrary offices of the canton
Between Chañaral and Antofagasta, in the heights of the inn and gasoline station "Agua Verde" was located Taltal saltpeter canton. Up to the present, there is a huge amount of ruins, roads and embankments of the sector's railways. The technical reinforcements in extracting the saltpeter were enormous, especially transport, water and energy supply were not easy problems to solve.
