African Barrick Gold Buzwagi Gold mine

Buzwagi: African Barrick Gold Tour Day 1

Let’s take a break from the questions. This week finds me on a tour of African Barrick Gold’s (Tanzania’s largest gold producer’s) mines and operations in Northern Tanzania.

The past three days have been interesting, to say the least, and as I promised my followers on Twitter, here are some pictures from the first day of the tour, when we visited African Barrick Gold mines at Buzwagi.


If you are anything like I was before this tour, I trust these pictures will satisfy some of your curiosity about Tanzania’s gold mines and the life around them.
