NaturalNano to Present at the Technology Finance 2005 Conference in Milan

NaturalNano President to Discuss Company's R&D Program and Industrial Market

Opportunities With International Financial Community

Nov 10, 2005, 00:00 ET from NaturalNano Inc.

    ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- NaturalNano Inc., a company whose
 primary business is discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring
 nanomaterials, announced today that President Michael Riedlinger will present
 at the Technology Finance 2005 on November 17, 2005 in Milan, Italy.  The
 conference is an opportunity for NaturalNano to educate the international
 financial community on its current research and development, proprietary
 capabilities and intellectual property.
     Riedlinger will present the Company's business plans and will also
 describe commercial applications for halloysite nanotubes.  These naturally
 occurring particles are hollow tubes with high aspect ratios that are tens to
 hundreds of nanometers (billionths of a meter) in diameter.
     Halloysite nanotubes' unique geometry enables them to be used for storing,
 delivering and controlling the release of various chemicals and materials
 making possible a wide range of commercial applications.  The potential
 commercial applications include use as additives in polymers and plastics,
 electronic components, cosmetics, absorbents, and many other product
 categories.  NaturalNano is making halloysite nanotubes samples available to
 prospective customers in these industries.
     NaturalNano has rights to multiple issued and pending patents that cover
 processes, compositions, and derivatives for the nanotubes found in halloysite
 clay. More than 200 different commercial applications have been identified.
 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 using naturally occurring nanotubes. These include precise,
 controlled, and extended release of application-specific additives for use
 with cosmetics, polymers and plastics and other products.
     Extracted from clay mined at the Dragon Mine in Utah, operated by Atlas
 Mining Company (OTC Bulletin Board:   ALMI), the tubule-rich halloysite clay can
 be supplied in very large quantities.  NaturalNano has an agreement with Atlas
 to extract nanotubes from halloysite clay at the mine site, which enables the
 Company to produce nanotubes to customer requirements for specific commercial
     The Technology Finance 2005 conference, held in Milan, Italy,
 November 17-18, 2005, is focused on emerging-growth biotech, nanotech,
 biometric, medical and pharmaceutical companies from cutting edge backgrounds.
 The event, which will be comprised mostly of investment, pharmaceutical and
 consulting sectors, will expose companies to institutional investors, venture
 capitalists, senior corporate executives and experts from the scientific and
 medical communities. This European partnering conference is sponsored by the
 Milano Group and provides presenters from around the world a new audience in
 the rapidly growing European markets.  The Milano Group's goal is capital
 infusion, licensing, market expansion and business development.  For complete

     NaturalNano Inc. is an advanced materials company with unique and
 proprietary processes for refining naturally occurring nanotubes and other
 materials that add desirable properties to a range of advanced applications
 encompassing enhanced composites, cosmetics, electronics and other industrial
 products.  The Company is a technology leader in the development of
 applications and processes for extraction and classification of nanotubes from
 halloysite clay, a source of naturally occurring nanotubes.
     NaturalNano possesses broad intellectual property rights and proprietary
 know-how for its comprehensive range of processes, compositions, and
 derivatives of halloysite nanotubes.  The Company's research and development
 teams have identified more than 200 novel applications for halloysite
 nanotubes.  Applications that can benefit from halloysite nanotubes include
 uses in cosmetics and personal care products, absorbent materials,
 electromagnetic interference shielding, specialty coatings, and material
 additives for industrial polymers, plastics and composites.
     The Company maintains a strategic commercial relationship with Atlas
 Mining Company (OTC Bulletin Board:   ALMI), owner of the Dragon Mine property
 in Juab County, Utah -- site of one of the world's largest known commercially
 mined deposits of halloysite clay.  This relationship assures NaturalNano
 access to a key raw material source for its production of processed halloysite
