» Caliche Ore

Iodine and Nitrates are extracted from Caliche Ore and produced in three independent production facilities, located East from Iquique Port, North of Chile.

Nitrates are co-produced with Iodine. Raw nitrates salts are obtained by simple solar evaporation and such salts are converted, up-graded into Salitre (N-K fertilizers)at the refinery located in Cala Cala.
