 ECC GROUP PLC ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT TO CONSTRUCT
 ON-SITE PCC FACILITY AT CHAMPION PAPER MILL
 NEW YORK, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- ECC Group plc (NASDAQ: ECLAY), the U.K. based industrial minerals company, today announced that an agreement has been signed with Champion International Paper Company (NYSE: CHA) in which ECC will construct a precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) production facility at Champion's Canton, N.C. paper mill.
 Construction of the facility is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 1992, and it is expected that the plant will have a capacity of approximately 40,000 tons/year of PCC. The Canton, N.C. plant will be the fifth PCC production facility constructed by ECC.
 Other PCC plant locations throughout North America include Bennettsville, S.C.; Saint Helens, Ore.; Groveton, N.H.; and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
 The agreement with Champion follows the recently announced expansion of ECC's kaolin facilities in Sandersville, Ga. Both announcements reflect ECC's global commitment to servicing the paper industry.
 ECC Group is the world's leading producer of kaolin, which is one of the most important minerals used in the manufacture of paper. The company is also a major supplier of calcium carbonate, ball clay and other industrial minerals to companies worldwide.
