The submission contains recommendations regarding the new mining legislation that was announced in Tanzania in July 2017. “At one of our last meetings with the Minister of Minerals Angellah Kairuki, she requested that we [Graphex] present a submission that not only explains the issues, concerns and clarifications that financiers are seeking but also provides more evidence on why what is currently is in place may not work and what we are proposing could work, and how other African countries deal with similar concepts,” explains Graphex MD Phil Hoskins.
Encouraging results  from maiden drill Encouraging results from maiden drill
Published: 12 Oct 18
The assay results from Australian mineral exploration and development company Strandline Resources maiden air-core (AC) drill programme and the second round of auger drilling at the Bagamoyo (BG) mineral sands project in Tanzania have provided the company with encouraging results. The BG-2 anomaly has received relatively wide spaced AC drilling along its 4.5 km length, and remains open across and along the strike, which confirms the potential scale of the system. The drilling of additional auger holes into the BG-4 anomaly has established the potential for north-west trending high-grade strands parallel to the current coast.

Of the ten understocked stations, four  –Arnot, Hendrina, Kriel and Tutuka, all in Mpumalanga – have coal stock levels of less than ten days, says Eskom CEO Phakamani Hadebe.
