Mining in Tanzania

Although mining in Tanzania initially focused around gold, today the biggest
projects include various minerals such as magnetite, chlorite, ilmenite, and
pyrite – with some of these mining projects, such as the Liganga Mining Project,
valued at up to ZAR6, 8 billion.


Gold mining in Tanzania is dominated mainly by mining companies Resolute Ltd, Ashanti Goldfields, AngloGold, Barrick Gold Corp, and Placer Dome Inc.The diverse resources for future mining in Tanzania appear to still be abundant, as data collected by MiningIQ shows there are five new mining plants being commissioned for gold mining , nickel mining, coal mining , iron ore mining , and uranium mining and processing – all of which are lucrative projects valued between ZAR1 billion and ZAR5 billion.

MiningIQ collects detailed data on all mining projects involved with mining in Tanzania – such as the Buzwagi Open Pit Mine, east of Kahama, which became fully operational in 2009. The data collected describes this entire operation – from the grassroots stage through to the operational stage – helping industry managers keep on track with all developments around mining in Tanzania.
