Market Update - EGPC Resumes Fuel Supply

PERTH, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Dec 14, 2012) -

For immediate release                                  14 December 2012

               Centamin plc ("Centamin" or "the Company")
                          (LSE:CEY, TSX:CEE)

                Market Update - EGPC Resumes Fuel Supply

Centamin advises that its fuel supplier Chevron has received
notification from Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) that
fuel supply to Sukari may be resumed and that no retrospective payment
is currently due. The escalation in diesel pricing that the company
experienced from local to international in January 2012 is currently
before the courts and has been for some months. This case will also
deal with any retrospective claim.

A further update on the status of gold exports will be provided in due
course as this will determine when operations at Sukari may resume.
