Applied Minerals is proud to introduce its AMIRON™ advanced natural iron oxides for a range of pigmentary and technical applications

Vertically integrated from mine to market, Applied Minerals’ Dragon Mine property, located in Utah, USA, has been recently discovered to contain one of the purest in-situ resources of iron oxide in the world. The resource has been independently measured to contain over 3 million tons of iron oxide in the form of limonite, goethite and hematite, grading 95% on average. Chemically, the iron oxide contains exceptionally low levels of trace metal impurities, enabling its use in market applications that have traditionally been restricted to synthetically produced iron oxides.
