    ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NaturalNano, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   NNAN; FWB: N3N), a company whose primary business is
 discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring nanomaterials,
 announced today that Michael Riedlinger, president, will present on nanotube
 technologies at the Ohio Nanotechnology Summit at the Greater Columbus
 Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday, April 4, 2006 at 11:20 a.m.
     Riedlinger will discuss NaturalNano's discovery of and continuing
 development of unique technologies for commercializing naturally-formed
 halloysite clay nanotubes.
     Riedlinger said, "Among the growing number of significant nanotechnologies
 being introduced to the marketplace, natural nanotubes represent a significant
 value to multiple industries.  Leveraging the anticipated growth potential of
 nanoscale materials, NaturalNano is leading the way towards commercialization
 of these multi-application nanomaterials.  We are looking forward to
 presenting the NaturalNano story at this highly respected conference and
 interacting with potential partners and other leading edge nanotechnology
     NaturalNano has rights to multiple issued and pending patents that cover
 processes, compositions, and applications for the nanotubes found in
 halloysite clay.  More than 200 different commercial applications have been
 identified to date.  The company is also developing proprietary,
 patent-pending extraction, separation, and classification technologies to
 enable production of more uniform nanotubes to meet the higher standards
 required for advanced applications of the naturally occurring nanotubes. These
 include precise, controlled, and extended release of application-specific
 additives for use with cosmetics, polymers and plastics and other areas.
