The next year, 1987, they carried out all the required legal steps, prepared the statutes by which this Institution is governed, and began to admit members.

This was the principal arrival port in Chile for the ships of the nitrate - the Cape Horners, who then continued on to Antofagasta, Tocopilla and Iquique, to load the mineral.
