Geita Gold Mine (GGM) is both an operating open pit and underground mine located in the North Western Geita region of Tanzania. It is controlled & owned by AngloGold Ashanti Ltd, and is the largest gold mine in Tanzania.
Freight Forwarders Tanzania was appointed as the Primary Logistics Partner for GGM in 1999. We have managed the organization’s entire supply chain, from the early construction phase of the mine through to the erection of the extraction plant and into steady state operation. Recently GGM embarked on another phase of development moving into an underground mining project with AUMS and again FFT was appointed as the Logistics Partner of choice.
Acacia Mining (formerly Africa Barrick Gold) operates three active mines in Northern Tanzania i.e North Mara (Open Pit… moving underground) , Bulyanhulu (underground), and Buzwagi (open pit).
Freight Forwarders Tanzania Ltd were appointed as Acacia’s in-house Primary Logistics Partner in 2005 at all three mine sites and remain so to this day. We have been involved in all major project and logistic moves since then, assisting with the construction of a new CIL Plant at Bulyanhulu as well as the underground development at the same mine.
More recently, North Mara has begun developing an underground mine for which Freight Forwarders will again be handling all the logistics services.
