TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2010) - Centamin Egypt Limited ("Centamin" or "the Company") (TSX:CEE)(LSE:CEY)(ASX:CNT), as announced on 29 October 2009, applied to the Australian Securities Exchange Ltd ("ASX") and was given approval under Listing Rule 17.11 for the Company to be removed from the ASX official list subject to certain conditions, which have or will be met.

The Company wishes to advise that Centamin will be suspended from quotation on the ASX from the close of business on 21 January 2010, and removed from the ASX official list on 29 January 2010 ("the Removal Date").

As previously advised, any shareholder who remains registered on the Company's Australian share register ("Australian Shareholders") on the Removal Date will be issued a share certificate representing their holding. This share certificate should be kept in a safe place as it is evidence of the shareholding. Computershare will remain the custodian of the share register. 

There will be NO change to your shareholding - your rights and entitlements will be protected under the Corporations Law and the Company's Constitution.

To assist Australian Shareholders who may want to transact Centamin shares on the LSE or the TSX following Centamin's removal from the ASX official list, the Company has entered into an agreement with Southern Cross Equities Limited, which has agreed to facilitate trading in Centamin shares for a period of three months following the delisting.
