Applied Minerals Receives Purchase Order for Its DRAGONITE Halloysite Clay for Oilfield Application

EUREKA, UT / ACCESSWIRE / March 22, 2022 / Applied Minerals, Inc. (the "Company" or "AMI") (OTC:AMNL), a leading producer of halloysite clay and natural iron oxides for high-value industrial applications, is pleased to announce it has received an initial purchase order for $270,000 from a customer for its DRAGONITE halloysite clay product for use in a downhole oilfield application.

Halloysite has been shown to improve the performance of a range of oilfield applications. The uncertainty in the energy markets experienced during 2020 delayed the commercialization of a number of oilfield-related products developed around the Company's DRAGONITE halloysite clay. In light of the improved oil and gas market, management believes these oilfield-related products will gain commercial traction.

The Company looks forward to providing additional business updates in the future.
