Imerys Announces Energy Surcharge on All Products (posted 6/4/08)

Imerys Performance Minerals North America has announced increases to its current energy surcharge, implemented on April 1, 2008, across its entire product portfolio (subject to any provisions in individual contracts). The increases are effective immediately, or as current price agreements expire, and include hydrous slurry kaolin, $4.85/ton; hydrous dry kaolin, $12.75/ton; calcined kaolin, $36.00/ton; dry-ground calcium carbonate, $2.25/ton; wet-ground calcium carbonate, $7.95/ton; and surface-treated ground calcium carbonate, $16.00/ton.

Consistent with the current market environment, Imerys continues to incur unprecedented escalation in energy and raw materials costs related to the mining and processing of its mineral products. Imerys Performance Minerals maintains its commitment to invest in new products, technology, operations and people in order to be a market leader in performance mineral products.
