Global Alumina Announces Agreement to Sell Its Interests In Guinea Alumina 
Corporation 
TORONTO, May 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Global Alumina Corporation (TSX: GLA.U) (the 
"Company" or "Global Alumina") announced today that it has signed a share 
purchase agreement ("SPA") with DM GAV Limited, a company established and 
owned equally by Mubadala Development Company PJSC and Dubai Aluminium, to 
sell all of Global Alumina's interests in Guinea Alumina Corporation Limited 
("Guinea Alumina") to DM GAV.  Pursuant to the SPA, DM GAV will make a US$2 
million advance payment to Global Alumina on signing of the SPA and will pay 
an additional US$36 million upon completion of the transactions contemplated 
by the SPA ("Completion"), which is scheduled to occur on or before August 31, 
2013.  A copy of the SPA will be available on the Company's SEDAR reference 
page at www.sedar.com. 
Coincident with this transaction, Global Alumina International Limited 
("GAIL") and The Broken Hill Proprietary Company Pty Limited ("BHP Billiton") 
have agreed to terminate their share purchase agreement which was announced on 
November 1, 2012.  Concurrent with this termination and execution of the SPA, 
DM GAV signed a share purchase agreement directly with BHP Billiton to buy all 
of BHP Billiton's interests in Guinea Alumina. 
Conditions to Completion include no objection having been received from the 
Government of Guinea, completion of DM GAV's acquisition of BHP Billiton's 
interests in Guinea Alumina and Global Alumina's regulatory and shareholder 
approvals.  These conditions must be satisfied by August 31, 2013 or the SPA 
may be terminated. 
Global Alumina intends to use the US$2 million advance payment to fund accrued 
liabilities and ongoing corporate costs until Completion.  Under the SPA, the 
Company has given limited representations and warranties some of which will 
survive for up to two years following Completion. 
The Company plans to call a special and general meeting of its shareholders as 
soon as practically possible to approve the SPA and the transactions 
contemplated thereby. 
A management information circular describing the background to, and terms of, 
the proposed transaction will be mailed to shareholders in advance of the 
meeting after due consideration by the Company's board of directors.  The 
management information circular will also be made available on the Company's 
reference page at www.sedar.com.
