Tanzania has given Acacia Mining up to March 30 to stop waste water pollution at North Mara goldmine or face a shutdown, its mining minister said.
Doto Biteko, said he had issued the deadline to stop what he said was seepage of contaminated water from a miningwaste storage dam to surrounding communities in the country’s north.
“We have given them until March 30 to fix this problem or face closure without notice. The life of even one Tanzanian is worth more than their goldmining activities,” Biteko told Reuters. Reuters
