Tanzania – Gold

Though it is the fourth-largest gold producer in Africa, Tanzania earns just under 3 percent of its gross domestic product from the mining industry. Future years may see that number grow as the mining sector expands. Tanzania also has impressive deposits of iron ore, nickel, copper, cobalt, silver, diamond, and more.
