and above guidance of 320,000 ounces.

Open pit total material movement decreased 8% from Q3 2013 to 9,642kt
and open pit ore production decreased 7% on Q3 2013 to 3,161kt. The run
of mine ore stockpile balance increased by 219kt to 1,756kt at the end
of the period. The underground mine delivered 174kt of ore, up 15% on
Q3 2013.

Quarterly throughput at the Sukari process plant was 1,400kt, a 12%
increase on the prior year period and a 4% decrease on Q3 2013,
exceeding the nameplate annualised rate of 5 million tonnes for the
fourth successive quarter with continued high levels of productivity
and availability.

Formal guidance for the current year will be provided during the first
quarter.

Josef El-Raghy, Chairman of Centamin, commented:"Consistently high levels
of productivity have been achieved at Sukari
throughout 2013, with minimal impact from unplanned stoppages or the
start of Stage 4 commissioning activities. Full year production is
ahead of guidance, as indicated in the Q3 results, and we look forward
to delivering a further successive year of growth in 2014 as the plant
expansion drives the continued ramp-up towards our 450-500,000 ounce
per annum long-term target. Despite the weak gold price environment,
we again exit the year with a robust financial and operating base on
which to continue delivering our growth strategy."
