The company was formed and went public in 2004 when Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based Cameco Corporation spun off its gold mining assets previously held by its 100%-owned subsidiary, Cameco Gold. On December 30, 2009 Cameco completed the disposition of its remaining interest in Centerra Gold.
Centerra owns and operates two gold producing mines:
- Kumtor Gold Mine in Kyrgyzstan (100% equity interest)
- Boroo Gold Mine in Mongolia (100% equity interest)
It also has interests in gold exploration properties:
- Gatsuurt property in Mongolia near Boroo (100% equity interest)
- REN property in Nevada, USA (64% equity interest, joint venture with Barrick Gold)
In 2009, two Centerra's mines produced over 676,000 ounces (18,200 kg) of gold; company's proven and probable reserves stand at 7.3 million ounces (220,000 kg) as of December 31, 2009.
