 Minerals Technologies Inc: Minerals Technologies Introduces New High-Density
                        Talc Products for Polyolefins

NEW YORK, NY, April 22, 2014-Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MTX) announced
today that it is introducing a new line of talc products for the polyolefin
markets. The new products will be marketed under the ULTRATALC® and
MICROTALC® trademarks and will be commercially available by mid-year.

"The introduction of these new products from our Performance Minerals unit is
another example of the vitality of Minerals Technologies new product
development pipeline," said Joseph C. Muscari, chairman and chief executive
officer. "These new high-density talc products will be produced at our
operation in Montana, which is being expanded to meet customer demand."

ULTRATALC® and MICROTALC® talc provide improved processing characteristics for
polyolefin melt compounders, including controlled moisture, dusting, material
handling and dispersion. By choosing one of several grades, the compounder
can select the optimum balance of stiffness and impact strength, while
maintaining maximum line speeds for production of such products as lightweight
bumpers and dashboards for the auto industry. These talc grades have been
developed in order to provide a North American alternative to imported Chinese
talc offerings.
