AngloGold Ashanti has one wholly owned and managed operation in Tanzania, Geita, the largest single gold mining operation within the group.
Geita is located in northwestern Tanzania, in the Lake Victoria goldfields of the Mwanza region, about 120km from Mwanza and 4km west of the town of Geita.
The Geita gold deposit is mined as a multiple open pit operation with underground potential and is currently serviced by a 5Mt per annum carbon-in-leach (CIL) processing plant. While Geita generates its own power, the operation of its power generating facility is outsourced and fuel is delivered by road.
