Trona Trail Historic Mine BywayJust prior to World War II, the Union Pacific Railroad verified the existence of trona and the immense size of the trona patch through core drilling across its vast land holdings. Prior to development of the trona industry in the 1940s and 1950s, entrepreneurs in Green River tried their hand at several chemical and energy industries, including sal soda, a hydrated sodium carbonate used as a general cleanser.
