The mine is situated in the Lake Victoria gold fields of North Western Tanzania, only about 85 km’s from Mwanza City. The company has its head office in Geita, only 5 Km’s west of the fast growing town of Geita, and also a supporting office in Dar es Salaam.
The Geita gold deposit is mined as a multiple open-pit and underground operation (since 2016) and will continue to operate as such until the entire economic open-pit Mineral Resource is exhausted. The mine is currently serviced by a carbon-in-leach processing plant with an annual capacity of 5.1Mt.
As at 31 December 2018, the Mineral Resource is 6.26 million ounces.
Approximately 4,130m of development was completed for the Star & Comet and Nyankanga underground sections, to access new areas for stope mining and for further exploration, in 2018.
Open-pit mining at Nyankanga and Geita Hill continued with Geita Hill reaching the end of its economic life and Nyankanga scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2019.
Surface exploration continued at Selous, a satellite pit 2.4km from Star & Comet, expected to supplement the underground operation in the near term.
Other notable projects at Geita were completion of the 40MW power plant and the purchase of underground mining plant and equipment. The power plant was commissioned in August and is currently in full operation, providing reliable, low-cost power to the mining operations.
The purchase of the underground mining plant and equipment is in line with the strategy to transition to owner mining at Star & Comet, planned for the first half of 2019, with the full change over for the rest of the mine’s sections expected to follow in coming years.
