Applied Minerals is the leading producer of halloysite clay and advanced natural iron oxide solutions from its wholly owned Dragon Mine property in Utah.
Halloysite is aluminosilicate clay that forms naturally occurring nanotubes.
In addition to serving the traditional halloysite markets for use in technical ceramics and catalytic applications,
the Company has developed niche applications that benefit from the tubular morphology of its halloysite.
These applications include carriers of active ingredients in paints, coatings and building materials, environmental remediation,
agricultural applications and high-performance additives & fillers for plastic composites. Applied Minerals markets its halloysite products under the DRAGONITE trade name.
From its Dragon Mine property, the Company also produces a range of ultra-pure natural iron oxides consisting of hematite and goethite.
Combining ultra-high purity and consistent quality, the inherent properties of the iron oxide from the Dragon Mine allow for a wide range of end uses in pigment and technical applications.
Applied Minerals markets its comprehensive line of advanced natural iron oxide pigments under the AMIRON trade name.
