ENGLISH CHINA CLAYS ADRs APPROVED FOR NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE LISTING
 NEW YORK, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ECC Group plc (English China Clays -- NASDAQ: ECLAY) today announced that the New York Stock Exchange has approved the Company's application to list its American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) on the Big Board. The first day of trading on the NYSE is scheduled to be April 30.
 Commenting on the forthcoming listing, Group Chief Executive, Andrew Teare, said "English China Clays has completed a major restructuring that includes considerable expansion of our business in the U.S. and we are delighted to be moving to a listing on the largest and most prestigious U.S. equity market."
 English China Clays' move to the NYSE follows a major restructuring that focused the company on two core businesses: industrial minerals, which consists primarily of kaolin and calcium carbonate sold to the paper industry, and construction materials. The company's U.S. operations grew considerably in 1990 through the acquisition of Georgia Kaolin.
 English China Clays is the world's leading producer of kaolin, 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 and is one of the largest suppliers of pre- cast concrete products in the United Kingdom. The company's construction materials activities also include the production of aggregates and coated stone. English China Clays' U.S. operations are headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, and approximately 20 percent of the company's sales are generated in the U.S.
