    It's about time but this has taken way too long and a lot of money has already been lost.

    What is left unsaid, according to Tundu Lissu, is that gold would be removed from the "strategic minerals" list. Currently gold accounts for 52% of mineral earnings. Another caveat is the so called "Foreign Investment Protection agreement," under which Tanzania would not be able to make changes to any Canadian investments in the country.
