About Centamin Egypt Limited

Centamin is a mineral exploration, development and mining company that has been actively exploring in Egypt since 1995. The principal asset of Centamin is its interest in the Sukari Gold Mine, located in the Eastern Desert of Egypt. Construction at the Sukari Gold Project commenced in March 2007 with first gold being produced in June 2009.

The Sukari Gold Mine is the first large-scale modern gold mine in Egypt. Centamin's operating experience in Egypt gives it a significant first-mover advantage in acquiring and developing other gold projects in the prospective Arabian-Nubian Shield.

In 2011 Centamin acquired Sheba Exploration (UK) PLC and now has interests in four mineral licences in Ethiopia where it is conducting further exploration activities.
