Centerra Gold Issues Update on Operations at its Kumtor Mine.

TORONTO -- Centerra Gold Inc. (TSX:CG) today reported that access to its Kumtor mine, in the Kyrgyz Republic, is currently being restricted by illegal roadblocks.

The action is related to the 1998 cyanide incident which Centerra settled with the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic in 1999. The settlement agreement was submitted to international arbitration which reviewed and confirmed the settlement as fair and reasonable.

The company is in discussions with the national and local government to expeditiously resolve the situation.

The operations continue normally, however the Company continues to closely monitor and evaluate the situation. The Company will issue further updates as warranted.
