Franklin, Tennessee - February 25, 2013 - Noranda Aluminum Holding Corporation
("Noranda" or the "Company") (NYSE: NOR) announced today that Noranda
Acquisition Corporation ("AcquisitionCo"), its wholly-owned subsidiary, intends
to seek commitments for approximately $60 million of secured term loans (the
"New Loans") to be structured as an incremental facility under its existing term
loan credit agreement.

AcquisitionCo intends to use the net proceeds from the New Loans to fund in part
the redemption of its outstanding Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2015 (the
"Redemption"), with the balance, if any, to be used for general corporate
purposes. Noranda is in discussion with lenders regarding the New Loans;
however, there can be no assurance that it will obtain commitments for the New
Loans in the time frame or on the terms it expects, or at 
all. Likewise, there can be no assurance that Noranda will successfully obtain the New Loans or complete the Redemption. The Redemption will be made pursuant to the redemption terms and notice provisions of the indenture governing the Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2015. This news release shall not constitute a notice of redemption. About the Company Noranda Aluminum Holding Corporation is a leading North American integrated producer of value-added primary aluminum products, as well as high quality rolled aluminum coils. Noranda is a public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
