              Sukari Operations Temporarily Halted



Centamin announces that it has temporarily halted operations at its
Sukari Gold Mine in Egypt due to illegal labour unrest from a small
percentage of the Sukari workforce.

The illegal work stoppage commenced as a result of a dispute with
on-going discussions relating to general salary increases. The Company
is continuing its discussions and has the full support of the Egyptian
Mineral Resources Authority and the Ministry of Labour.

The Company does not consider this interruption to production to be
material at this stage and will provide further updates in due course.
