Applied Minerals produces Dragonite™ from its wholly owned source, the Dragon Mine, located in the state of Utah (USA). Dragonite™ Halloysite is an inorganic, aluminosilicate clay, exhibiting a unique naturally occurring tubular morphology. The intrinsic properties of the clay, such as its very high surface area, micron size particles, and natural capillary pore structure, inspired the Company to develop its use as a natural, alternative sorbent, to assist in the bioremediation of the Gulf Spill. The desired objective of the material was to determine its ability to wick oil from the oil saturated subsurface to the surface where aerobic biodegradation can take place. Preliminary testing performed under the direction of the EPA revealed the ability of Dragonite™ to effectively “wick” 42.0% - 98.2% of oil, under a range of extremes designed to simulate the Gulf marshland conditions.In light of the results, the CRADA was formed to combine the expertise and resources in collaboration to further maximize the effectiveness of the Dragonite™ product.
