REPAP ANNOUNCES RECALL OF 130 WORKERS IN MANITOBA

 MONTREAL, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Repap Enterprises Inc. announced that its sawmill operations in The Pas, Manitoba will resume on Jan. 18, 1993, one full month earlier than planned. As a result, 130 employees have been issued recall notices.
 Mr. George S. Petty, chairman of Repap Enterprises Inc., stated that the early start-up is "in response to record high lumber prices". He added, "the additional operating time will contribute positively to Repap's financial performance".
 The solid woods business, which is being driven by wood supply shortages and by strengthening housing markets in Japan and the U.S., will improve gross margins in 1993.
