Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/06/2013 -- The Tanzanian mining industry is relatively small in terms of value, but its importance is highlighted by the fact that mining earns a significant share of the country's export revenues. The mining sector contributes approximately 3.0% to annual GDP, but the government wishes to expand this to 10% by 2025, a target we think is too optimistic. Major foreign investors in Tanzanian mining include African Barrick Gold and AngloGold Ashanti.
Tanzania is home to significant deposits of coal, cobalt, copper, diamonds, gold, nickel, silver and uranium. The country has long been a significant producer of gold (and is currently Africa's fourth largest producer) and diamonds. However, we also expect coal, nickel and uranium production to become key sub-sectors of Tanzania's mining sector. We have long held the view that coal should become one of the fastest-growing areas in Tanzania over coming years, as the country looks to coal-fired power stations to offset an energy shortage that is holding back its development. The country could also be in a position to export coal, most likely to India and China.
