Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 14, 2005, Century Aluminum Company (the "Company") filed a Form 8-K (the "Original 8-K") with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This amendment to the Original 8-K restates the information presented under the heading "COMPENSATION FOR CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD" in Item 1.01 thereof to amend certain dates presented therein:

On December 8, 2005, the Committee approved the compensation to be paid to Craig A. Davis for his continued service as Chairman of the Board of Directors following his retirement as the Company's Chief Executive Officer and President. For the period from January 1, 2006 to June 30, 2006, Mr. Davis will receive $250,000 for his services. Thereafter, he will receive an annual retainer of $100,000 for his services. In addition, beginning July 1, 2006, as a non-employee director Mr. Davis will receive a fee of $2,000 for each Board or Board Committee meeting attended and will be reimbursed for his travel and other expenses incurred in attending Board and Board Committee meetings. Under the Company's Amended and Restated 1996 Stock Incentive Plan, non-employee directors continuing in office after the annual meeting of stockholders each year receive options to purchase 3,000 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price equal to the market price of such shares on the date of the grant.

Item 5.02.    Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers
In Item 5.02 of the Original 8-K, the Company announced, among other things, that Logan W. Kruger had assumed the positions of President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. This amendment to the Original 8-K hereby supplements Item 5.02 thereof to announce that the Company's board of directors elected Mr. Kruger to serve as a member of the board on December 13, 2005. Mr. Kruger is not presently expected to be named to serve on any committee of the board of directors. The Company is not aware of any relationship or transaction requiring disclosure pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
