Centamin has operations in Egypt, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire. Our flagship project, the Sukari Gold Mine, is located in the Eastern Desert of Egypt and production is rapidly increasing to an annualised rate of 450-500,000 ounces.
Centamin has a large resource and reserve base and through the continued exploration of Sukari Hill and the 160km2 Sukari tenement area there is significant upside potential.
Our regional exploration is focused in Ethiopia, where in addition to our own licences we have a joint venture arrangement with AIM‑listed Alecto Minerals plc, and following the acquisition of ASX‑listed Ampella Mining Ltd, in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire. Exploration work will continue in all these regions during 2014 and 2015 to drive our growth in the longer term.
