PERTH, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2013) -

For immediate release 20 March 2013

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

                       Court Ruling Suspended

Centamin is pleased to note that the High Administrative Court of Egypt
has today made a ruling suspending enforcement of the judgment issued
by the Administrative Court on 30 October 2012 until a final decision
on the merits of the appeal is given. This judgment supersedes the
notice of "objection to enforcement" which has been in place since 31
October 2012 and effectively allows normal operations at Sukari to
continue throughout the appeal process.

Today's hearing and decision was not on the merits of the appeal and as
yet no date has been set for the initial hearing in this respect.
