ENGLISH CHINA CLAYS FILES FOR LISTING ON NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE

 ENGLISH CHINA CLAYS FILES FOR LISTING ON NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE
 NEW YORK, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- ECC Group plc (English China Clays) (ADR - NASDAQ: ECLAY) today announced that it has filed an application for listing of its American Depositary Shares, evidenced by American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), on the New York Stock Exchange. The company's ADRs have traded on NASDAQ since 1987.
 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.
 It is expected that the first day of trading will be in late April. Prior to that time, a specialist will be assigned who will be responsible for maintaining a fair and orderly market in the shares.
 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 and approximately 20 percent of the company's sales are generated in the United States.
