TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - May 26, 2009) - Centerra Gold Inc. (TSX:CG) announced that unionized employees of its Boroo Mine in Mongolia today initiated a work stoppage. This stoppage is the result of additional wage demands, which the Company considers unreasonable. As a result mining and milling at Boroo has been temporarily suspended.
