Community & Society
Centamin's concession agreement gives us 30 years of operation at the Sukari Gold Mine with a potential extension for another 30 years. With such a long tenure, which is supported by a long life-of-mine, we take a long term view in matters relating to the local community.
As the first mining company in Egypt in modern times, we strive to set an example of a socially responsible industry through adopting a good neighbour policy. We take every action to ensure Sukari has the minimum impact on the social environment, as well as to deliver positive benefits to the community as a result of our investment.
Working With The Community
Centamin recognises that it has a responsibility in supporting and enhancing the community in which it operates as a good corporate citizen. Marsa Alam is a relatively small town approximately 23km from site that has grown rapidly with the development of both Sukari and tourism related businesses in the area. Enhancing the community and its livelihood will reflect positively on our long-term interaction with local people, so Centamin has invested significantly in improving the level of services and infrastructure.
