Alcoa Inc. and ACX Technologies, Inc. announced today that they have
completed the sale of substantially all the assets of Golden Aluminum
Company, a subsidiary of ACX, to Alcoa.
Golden Aluminum's operations include a shuttered rolling facility in San

currently produces up to 70 million pounds of coated and mill finish

facility and retain the San Antonio plant for development work and
non-can sheet production. Alcoa has reached an agreement with the U.S.
Department of Justice that provides for the Ft. Lupton sale under a
consent decree. The consent decree was filed in U.S. District Court
