Tanzania

 

Almost 41 million people speak about 128 different languages. Until now no uranium deposit was built, but the first is planned.

As is so often the case, money is one of the main reasons, because there will be 1600 new jobs through the mine and 5 million US Dollars revenue yearly. The grave environmental and health issues connected to opening a mine next to one of the most important natural reserves in the world are also being ignored here.

Imminent Uranium Mining in Tanzania

Currently 25 companies from different countries are exploring for uranium in Tanzania (www.wiseuarnium.org). Already in the 1970s radiometric survey showed several radiometric anomalies pointing to uranium enrichments as well in the South of Tanzania as in an area around Bahi in central Tanzania. During the last years these possible deposits got into the focus of the international uranium mining industry. For example the Australia based corporation Uranex NL (www.uranex.com.au) has managed to get rights overexploration tenements of more than 12000km2 since the corporation was founded in 2005.
