TanzaniteOne pays USD12M tax to Tanzania in 5 years

26 may 2009

Coloured gemstone miner TanzaniteOne says it paid a USD12 million in form of taxes to the Tanzanian treasury for the past five years.
The firm had been mining Tanzanite, a rare blue gemstone in the 100-square kilometre Block C, in Mererani Hills, in Tanzania since 2004.
"We have paid TShs15.7 billion (USD12 million) in form of taxes into the Tanzanian treasury in the course of five years," TanzaniteOne Chairman, Ambassador Ami Mpungwe was quoted as saying by East Africa Business Week.
Mpungwe was quoted as saying that TanzaniteOne had also contributed significantly to the formalisation, modernisation and integration of the tanzanite industry.
"We have struggled immensely in stabilizing supply lines of tanzanite to the world markets, undertaking a number of promotional and marketing initiatives for tanzanite worldwide, contributing significantly to the social and economic infrastructure of the neighbouring communities," he was quoted as saying.
TanzaniteOne recently announced a 29 percent increase in recovery of tanzanite up to 2.2 million carats, a 4.6 percent increase in recovery of high quality stones.
