ECC GROUP PLC ANNOUNCES CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS ACQUISITION IN DENVER
 NEW YORK, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- ECC Group plc (NASDAQ: ECLAY), the UK based industrial minerals company, today announced that it has entered into an agreement in principal to acquire the sand and gravel mineral reserves of Walt Flanagan & Company for $20.5 million. The operations to be acquired are located in Denver.
 Flanagan is a leading producer of readymix concrete in the Denver metropolitan area and is a long-standing customer of the Cooley Gravel Company, ECC's aggregate subsidiary in Denver. This acquisition will enable ECC to provide a fully integrated service to the Denver market covering aggregates, coated materials, surfacing materials and readymix concrete.
 The mineral assets acquired consist of some 22 million tons of sand and gravel reserves in the South Platte River Valley which will greatly strengthen Cooley Gravel's reserve position. These reserves are in the vicinity of, and well placed to serve, construction of Denver's new hub airport and its infrastructure development.
 It is anticipated that the acquisition will be completed in March 1992.
 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. ECC is also a substantial producer of construction materials with operations in the U.K., U.S. and Spain. Approximately 25 percent of the company's sales are generated in the U.S.
