There is mining discussion here in Kenya's forum, maybe those people have a bit of knowledge about mining in the region.

Work begins on coal, iron ore mines
http://www.dailynews.co.tz/home/?n=26326

Quote:
THE National Development Corporation (NDC) and China's Sichuan Hongda Group are conducting groundwork to confirm the amount of iron ore and coal in Liganga and Mchuchuma projects before mining starts.

Experts were in Ludewa District last week to assess development of US $3 billion (4.9tr/-) projects that are expected to boost energy supply and industrial development.

NDC's Head of Chemical Industry Mr Abdallah Mandwanga told the 'Daily News' over the weekend at Sabasaba ground that the assessment is expected to identify the quantity and quality of resources available.

He said Mchuchuma coal mine study was conducted between 1995 and 1997, but the new investors would like to confirm the size of resources and other project parameters such as actual costs of the project.

"In the previous study, geological drilling exploration was conducted. Results indicated that there were 125 million tonnes of coal," Mr Madwanga said adding that the exercise would take six months.

The project is expected to produce 600 MW of electricity. Half of it will be used by Liganga Iron ore and the rest will be added into the national grid.

He said people may start to benefit from electricity in 2014. On Liganga Iron ore, he said studies to establish the amount of reserves were inconclusive. The survey would take 18 months and steel is expected to be on the market by 2015.
He said 3 million tonnes of iron ore would be extracted per annum from which 1 million tonnes of steel for local, regional and international markets would be produced.
He said Liganga mine has other minerals namely Vanadium and Titanium, which are more valuable than iron ore, adding that the contract with investors recognizes the presence of the minerals.

He said the price of Vanadium in the world market stands at US $23,000 per tonne while Titanium fetches US $2,400 (4m/-), Steel sells at US $1000 (1.7m/-) per tonne.
The projects will attract construction of a railway line from the sites to Mtwara Port at a cost of US $800 billion (136tr/-), according to Japan.
"The JDI said for the railway project to be viable, more projects within Mtwara Development Corridor need to be included," he noted.

A joint venture between the two companies was signed on September 20, this year. The two companies then established Tanzania China International Mineral Resources Ltd which will run the projects.

Uranium exploration firm keeps clean safety record

http://www.dailynews.co.tz/home/?n=26332&cat=home


Quote:
MANTRA Tanzania has said that it has built its presence and reputation in the country with strict adherence to the highest level of safety standards with the company recording no accident in a one-year period that ended in October.

A statement released by the company on Sunday said the achievement is a clear testimony on how it values human life than anything else during its activities.

''Together with contractors and other staff members, Mantra Tanzania clocked a total of 522, 868 hours lost time injury (LTI) free for the Mkuju River Project in Tanzania. It is a significant achievement and a milestone for the project,'' said Mantra Tanzania Country Manager, Asa
Mwaipopo, in the statement.

Mwaipopo said the company's milestone achievement has been realized by following correct safety work procedures as well as assessing hazards and risk before and during tasks.

''Our safety first policy (usalama kwanza) has also proved effective in developing a common approach and attitude towards safety. This achievement is a result of team effort by Mantra personnel, contractors and management.

''This spirit of safety will not end here. We will continue to ensuring that all people involved in our day- to -day operations are protected. We need to stay focused so as to achieve another milestone of up to one million hours without a lost time injury,'' Mwaipopo added.

Mantra Tanzania has applied for a license to start mining uranium at the Mkuju river area in Ruvuma Region at the end of next year with a mineable ore reserve base of 65.5 million pounds.
The company has already completed environmental and social impact assessments (ESIA) in the area which have been submitted to the National Environmental Management Council (NEMC).

The project will be the first major mining development within South Eastern Tanzania and will help generate Foreign Direct Investment of up to 765bn/- (US $450m) as well as 1.1tr/- (US $630m) in the form of royalties. About 1,600 jobs will be created during the construction of the project with 600 permanent jobs created during steady state production and up to 4,500 further jobs created through secondary industries associated with the project (contractors, suppliers, shop owners, etc.) The project will centre on skills development amongst the local population through an already planned in-house skills development programme when the project kicks off late next year.
