Leonardite / Lignite


Our high-quality leonardite is a concentrated, natural source of humic acids that can be used as the basis of, or added to, fertilizers designed to enhance soil performance.

Leonardite is a naturally occurring, mineable material known for its humic acids content.


Lignite is added to stabilize and thin fluids used in the drilling of wells for hydrocarbon exploration and extraction, and for geothermal drilling.

Lignite can be used directly to disperse and thin water-based drilling fluid systems, and to reduce high-temperature/high-pressure filtration rates, or be modified for use in oil-based drilling that reduces fluid loss.
