2. History of Chloride. “Several mining camps were started in the Cerbat Mountains after the treaty including Mineral Park, Cerbat and Chloride. They are still mining copper at Mineral Park today. The Butterfield Stage served Chloride from 1868 through 1919 and the Santa Fe Railroad came into town from 1898 until 1935. All the major mining in Chloride was finished as of about 1944. Prices to extract ore went up and man power became scarce as of World War II and things just trickled to a halt. Population in Chloride was over 2,000 people during the high point of mines; 1900 to 1920.” (Submitted on July 11, 2009, by Syd Whittle of El Dorado Hills, California.)
