In partnership with DELVE, the platform for artisanal and small-scale mining data, IPIS produced a profile of the ASM sector in Tanzania. This country profile provides elements on the historical context of mining in the country and gives an overview of the geographical scope, gender participation, employment and production levels for key ASM minerals.
The Profile sheds a light on the Tanzanian mineral governance framework and analyses the government’s formalisation efforts to maximise the socio-economic potential of ASM.
By compiling available information on the mining sector in Tanzania, this profile offers an extensive bibliography and allows to identify remaining key knowledge and data gaps.
Supplementing the country profile is a webpage which displays key information and provides dynamic visual representations on the artisanal mining sector in Tanzania:
