ATLANTA--(CCNMatthews - Oct 31, 2005) -

In addition to the 17 August 2005 price increase announcement on kaolin for paper, IMERYS will implement an energy surcharge or further adjust prices for paper grade Georgia kaolins to reflect the very recent, unprecedented escalation in energy costs.

These energy-related charges are effective immediately or as customer contracts allow.
