At this point in time, it all hinges on the government of Tanzania issuing mining permits imho.
Bulyanhulu http://www.barrick.com/GlobalOperations/... The Bulyanhulu mine is located in northwest Tanzania, East Africa, approximately 55 kilometres south of Lake Victoria and approximately 150 kilometres from the city of Mwanza.
Bulyanhulu is an underground trackless operation that uses long-hole and drift-and-fill as its principal stoping methods. Ore reserves are accessed via a surface shaft and an internal ramp system. The processing plant consists of a crushing and grinding circuit, a copper/gold/silver flotation circuit, a tailings thickening/filtration circuit and a tailings storage facility.
In 2008, the mine produced 200,000 ounces of gold at total cash costs of $620 per ounce1.At December 31, 2008, Bulyanhulu had 12 million ounces of proven and probable gold reserves2.
The Tulawaka mine is a 70/30 joint venture between Barrick and Northern Mining Explorations Ltd. The site is located approximately 1,000 kilometres from Dar es Salaam and 120 kilometres west of Barrick’s Bulyanhulu mine.
The processing operation uses gravity separation technology to recover approximately half the contained gold, with the balance from conventional carbon-in-leach technology.
In 2008, Barrick’s share of production was 148,000 ounces of gold at total cash costs of $212 per ounce1. The Company’s share of proven and probable gold reserves as of December 31, 2008 is estimated at 80,000 ounces of gold2.
