Announcement of Intention to Delist American Depositary Shares from the New York Stock Exchange and Intention to Deregister and Terminate Reporting Obligations under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act

BEIJING, CHINA, Aug 12, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Aluminum Corporation of China Limited ("Chalco" or the "Company")(NYSE: ACH; HKEx: 2600; SSE: 601600) today announced that it has notified the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") on August 12, 2022 (U.S. Eastern Time) of its proposed application for voluntary delisting of its American depositary shares (the "ADSs") from the NYSE and deregistration of such ADSs and the underlying overseas listed foreign shares (the "H Shares", with a par value of RMB1 each) under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Due to a number of considerations, including the limited trading volume of the ADSs of the Company as compared to the worldwide trading volume of H Shares of the Company, and the considerable administrative burden and costs associated with maintaining the listing of the ADSs on the NYSE and the registration of the ADSs and the underlying H Shares with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and complying with the periodic reporting and related obligations under the Exchange Act, the board of directors (the "Board") of the Company approved the delisting of the ADSs from the NYSE and the deregistration of the ADSs and underlying H Shares under the Exchange Act.

As such, the Company intends to file a Form 25 with the SEC on or around August 22, 2022, to delist its ADSs from the NYSE. Such delisting is expected to become effective ten days after the filing of Form 25. The last trading day of ADSs on the NYSE will be on or about 1 September 2022. On and after such date, the ADSs of the Company will no longer be listed on the NYSE and whether or not the Company's ADSs will be traded on the over-the-counter market thereafter will depend on the actions of shareholders and independent third parties, without the Company's involvement.

After the delisting becomes effective, once the Company satisfies the conditions for deregistration, the Company intends to file a Form 15F with the SEC to deregister the ADSs and underlying H Shares under the Exchange Act. Thereafter, the reporting obligations for the Company under the Exchange Act will be suspended unless Form 15F is subsequently revoked or rejected. The deregistration and the termination of the reporting obligations of the Company under the Exchange Act are expected to become effective 90 days after the filing of Form 15F. Upon the filing of Form 15F, the Company will make available the information required by Rule 12g3-2(b) under the Exchange Act on its website at www.chalco.com.cn. The Company, as a listed issuer, will also continue to comply with its financial reporting and other obligations under the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the "Listing Rules").

The Company intends to terminate its ADSs program in an appropriate manner in accordance with the deposit agreement in due course after the delisting of the ADSs from the NYSE.

The Company reserves its right in all aspects to postpone or withdraw the above filings prior to their effectiveness; if necessary, the Company will make any further announcement as required by the Listing Rules and other applicable laws.
