Monte Carlo simulations for pureU (2) gauge theory on a four-dimensional simplicial lattice with six sites in each direction are reported. Wilson loops and the string tensions for squares and triangles are presented. A first-order phase transition, similar to that found for the hypercubical lattice, is observed and found to confineSU (2) colour and deconfineU (1) charge.
