Elephant Powder was made in Pernambuco, Brazil. I don't know exactly when they went out of business but it had to be at least 15+ years ago.Where was Elephant manufactured and when did they close their doors?
The story I heard was, the land the company sit on was more valuable than the company so Elephant went out of business and sold off their powder making machinery.
The machinery was later used by a company called Diamondback, also located in Brazil, to make black powder.
From what I've read about Diamondback powder, they must have bought Elephant's recipe because like Elephant, Diamondback powder was weak and produced a lot of fouling.
