Tanzania Uranium Project Mkuju RiverTanzania Uranium

Tanzania has found huge deposits of uranium mainly in Namtumbo (Mkuju), Bahi, Galapo, Minjingu, Mbulu, Simanjiro, Lake Natron, Manyoni, Songea, Tunduru, Madaba and Nachingwea.

As of 2022, identified uranium resources in Tanzania were estimated at about 55,000 tonnes, but none of this has been mined commercially.

One of the major uranium development projects is the Mkuju River Project, located in southern Tanzania, about 470 km southwest of Dar es Salaam.

The project is being developed by Mantra Tanzania, a local subsidiary of Uranium One.

When operational, Mkuju will be Tanzania’s first uranium mine. It will establish Tanzania among the top 5 producers of uranium in Africa.
