LOWER BRULE SIOUX TRIBE FORMS UTAH COMPANY

 SALT LAKE CITY, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Lower Brule Sioux Tribal Chairman Michael B. Jandreau announced today the formation of Brule Industries, a new tribal enterprise to sell, distribute and apply Pavement Dressing Conditioner (PDC), a revolutionary asphalt pavement treatment.
 Developed nearly 30 years ago, PDC was not, at the time, economical. Since the cost of asphalt has increased more than 10 times since PDC was invented, it has been proven both highly economical and effective. PDC has an advantage over standard asphalt sealers: it not only seals the surface, it penetrates, restoring the pliability and cohesion of the asphalt materials.
 Brule Industries' distribution territory for PDC includes all Indian tribes in the United States and the states of New Mexico and Utah.
 Former President George Bush's Secretary of the Interior Manuel Lujan Jr. of Albuquerque, N.M.; Lower Brule Tribal Chairman Jandreau of Lower Brule, S.D.; and President Gerald Ford's former Deputy Undersecretary of the Interior R. Dennis Ickes of Salt Lake will comprise the company's board of directors.
 Brule Industries, formed under the laws of Utah, will have western headquarters in Salt Lake City with company headquarters at the tribal offices on the reservation, near Pierre, S.D.
 Profits from the operations of Brule Industries will be used to purchase from non-Indian owners their original reservation lands. From the income of other tribal enterprises, including a construction contracting business, a 10,000-acre tribal farm, reservation gaming enterprises and the use of their wildlife reserve, they have already purchased about 45,000 acres and have another 65,000 to recover before their reservation is again complete.
