      Default Russia Sneaks Back into Tanzanian Uranium

      Monday, April 4, 2011


      Tanzania’s Mkuju uranium assets are back on the auction block with Russian firm JSC Atomredmetzoloto (ARMZ) purchasing assets from Aussie firm Mantra Resources Ltd. The transaction, originally priced at $1.16 billion, will sell for $944 million with the deal expected to close in July.


      The mining plant in southern Tanzania is expected to begin operating in Q4 2013. Minister for Energy and Minerals, William Ngeleja, told The EastAfrican that the Mkuju River Project is shaping up into a truly world-class venture and has the potential, in its first phase of development, to position Tanzania as the third, and perhaps even the second largest producer of uranium in Africa. Ngeleja said that the pre-feasibility study in March 2010 indicated that once developed the mine would produce 1,650 tons of uranium oxide a year. This figure would propel it to become the eighth largest producer in the world overtaking the US which produced 1,560 tons in 2009.


      The Tanzanian government expects to reap $630 million as profit over the mine’s 15-year span.


      Interestingly, in 2009 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev traveled throughout Africa promoting nuclear ambitions taking particular interest in Namibia’s vast uranium deposits. Yury Trutnev, Russia's Natural Resources Minister, said Moscow was interested in helping Namibia develop its nuclear industry. "Namibia very much needs to develop its energy sphere," he said. And in October 2010, Russian company Borodino signed a deal with the East African country to finance the construction of the $700 million Rumakali hydropower plant in October. This, of course, is in addition to Russia’s alliance with China over African ventures coincidentally enough in hydrocarbon and uranium-rich countries.

      Ujerumani wana mpango wa kuzalisha umeme wa jua kwenye jangwa la sahara nna kuusafirisha hadi kwao . wanataka kuachana na mmbo ya nuclear energy na wananchi wao washaandamana mara nyingi kuitaka serikali iachane na mambo ya nuclear

      Solar Energy kwenye jangwa la sahara!!!
      Hamna ukweli hapo cz Its very expensive, the heat inaumiza mashine na kuziua kabisa and third, bcz of the fast development in technology through R&D, its meaningless kuweka plant ambayo itakulipa profit after 8 years wakat wengine wanaweza kuja na cheapest technology after the next three years.

      Nilikaa na mtaalam wa hii mambo from German alikuja Tanzania kuwekeza kwenye Wind Energy. Anasema solar energy inalipa after 8 years.

      Chernobyl ilikuwaje kwani? Sisi tulivyo, tutatengeneza tatizo kubwa kuliko lile la Chernobyl. Sio kila kitu tunaweza kuiga...tutengeneze umeme wa gas na makaa ya mawe kwanza ndio tuende kwenye ulimwengu wa nuclear.
      Ila hiyo ya Mkuju ngoja tuone sherehe itaendeleaje ingawa haijakaa vizuri hata kidogo kwa wamerekani
