EAGLE MOUNTAIN LANDFILL PROJECT RECEIVES FIRST TWO REQUIRED AIR QUALITY PERMITS

 RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Resources Inc. (NASDAQ: KRSC) announced today that the Eagle Mountain Landfill Project has received the first two of its operating permits from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). The permits issued, which are two of the nine air quality permit applications filed by Mine Reclamation Corp. (MRC), the company developing the landfill project, are for the operation of emergency standby power equipment.
 "This is very good news," said Daniel N. Larson, president of Kaiser Resources Inc. "While additional air quality and other permits must be received, it's a positive step forward for the project and indicates that the permitting process is moving forward."
 In addition to the nine air quality permit applications filed in April 1993, MRC has also recently filed a supplemental report as part of its application with the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB). This report addresses permit level questions and comments of regulatory agency staff members of the RWQCB, State Water Resources Control Board, California Integrated Waste Management Board, Riverside County Department of Environmental Health, Riverside County Department of Waste Management and California Department of Water Resources.
 "This supplemental volume of detailed permit level information again confirms the conclusions of the Riverside County Certified Environmental Impact Report (EIR) concerning geologic and ground water conditions at the site," said Rick Daniels, president and chief executive officer of MRC. "We are looking forward to a RWQCB workshop in September followed by a public hearing and the granting of our permit this fall. We remain confident the project will continue to pass each level of environmental scrutiny."
 The Environmental Impact Report for the project was approved by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors in November 1992. By the end of 1993, MRC expects to complete the next steps in the permitting process with applications to the Riverside County Environmental Health Department and the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
 Eagle Mountain is located in the remote desert of Riverside County, Calif. Kaiser Resources Inc. owns a former open pit iron ore mine that the company leased to MRC for the development of a rail-haul, municipal, solid waste landfill capable of accepting 20,000 tons per day for 75 years.
 Kaiser Resources Inc. (formerly known as Kaiser Steel Resources Inc.) is an emerging environmental resources company pursuing projects that address critical issues in Southern California, including solid waste management, water resources and property redevelopment.
