(1) A "Vote Withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes 'For' and 'Against' the resolution.

A copy of the results of the AGM, along with a copy of resolutions passed other than those concerning ordinary business at the AGM, have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM. The scrutineers of the poll were Computershare Investor Services (Jersey) Limited. The full text of each of the resolutions is set out in the Notice of AGM, a copy of which is available on the Centamin website at www.centamin.com.

Disclosure under the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code

The Board are pleased that all resolutions at the meeting were passed but notes that a significant minority of shareholders (more than 20%) voted against Resolution 3.1, the approval of last year's Directors' Remuneration Report. The Remuneration Committee understands that whilst a clear majority of shareholders were supportive of the report, some investors were concerned with an element of the 2018 annual bonus plan. The Remuneration Committee believes that this issue has been addressed as part of the Remuneration Policy review process (and so will not feature in the annual bonus plan going forward, resulting in no further action being required), with the Board welcoming the support from shareholders for Resolution 3.2 (98.60%) (the approval of the new Directors' Remuneration Policy) and for Resolution 3.3 (98.94%) (the amendments to the Performance Share Plan).

Josef El-Raghy, Chairman commented:

"Since the 2018 AGM, the Board has engaged extensively with major shareholders and proxy advisers and we would like to thank them for their valued feedback and look forward to continuing with this constructive engagement.

Generating tangible value and returns for our stakeholders remains paramount to our decision making as we mark our 10(th) year of commercial production from the Sukari Gold Mine. We remain committed to delivering operational improvements, whilst advancing future growth prospects across our highly prospective 4,400km(2) Group landholding, host to our 15.7Moz Group gold resource base."
