Black Rock Mining – Enhancing Functional Community in Mahenge, Tanzania

As a company our strategy is simple: concentrate on completing high quality technical work, with a focus on market development and customer acceptance. Ensuring our environmental and community footprint is as small as possible, is a common-sense approach to long term risk management. From the outset, we have positioned Mahenge to be as integrated into the Tanzanian economy as possible. This includes the use of Tanesco (Tanzania Electric Supply Company Ltd) for power, and Tazara (Tanzania Zambian Railway Authority) for freight. This is not an outcome of the mining code, rather it is a sensible and pragmatic approach to operating a quality project sustainably, for the long haul.
