• Traveling into the Tanzanite Mines of Tanzania, Africa

    https://www.TanzaniteJewelryDesigns.com Steve Moriarty travels to Tanzania to go direct to the source of Tanzanite. During this trip he brought along local photographer, Matt Bigelow, to document their trip. This video shows their journey to a Tanzanite mine that they went to and explored. They traveled through Tanzania to Merelani, where Steve's friend owns and operates a Tanzanite mine. Here they met, talked to, and had lunch with the local miners before going into the actual mine itself. Steve's main goal of this trip was to bring back tanzanite, but he also met with the miners and gem dealers in the area to purchase some other natural gemstones that were mined close by. These gems included, Merelani mint garnet, umbalite garnet, zircon, and moonstone. To see images from our blog on th...

Tanzania is the fourth largest gold producer in Africa with exports of more than $1.6bn in 2014. Hundreds of thousands of the country's miners work in harsh conditions with little pay and even fewer prospects for their future, but that could soon change with a new Fairtrade deal to sell gold to the UK - the first of its kind in Africa.

  • Tanzania government slaps Acacia with $190 billion tax bill

    The government of Tanzania has slapped Acacia Mining with a tax bill of 190 billion dollars. That's equivalent to almost two centuries' worth of the gold producer's revenue. The charges relate to alleged under-declared export revenue from its Bulyanhulu and Buzwagi mines between 2000 and 2017. Acacia maintains it's fully declared all revenue. The fine is the latest development in an escalating conflict between the government and Acacia. In March, Tanzania banned exports of unprocessed gold and copper -- a move Acacia says is costing it about 1-million dollars a day in lost revenue. The government has also accused the firm of operating illegally and tax evasion. Acacia has denied the allegations.

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: contact@javafilms.fr Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.
