Mr Stanslaus Nyongo, deputy minister for minerals, said that Tanzania will start cancelling inactive mining exploration licences and distribute the acreage to artisanal miners who are able to immediately commence activity in the area. He told parliament that he had issued an order that "all inactive prospecting licences are cancelled for the areas to be given to the small-scale miners who are eager to develop and increase the contribution of the mining sector."

Since assuming power in 2015, President Mr John Magufuli has effected various reforms in the mining sector to maximise its value and also ensure citizens take a bigger slice of the country's natural resource wealth.

In February parliament also passed a law giving artisanal miners tax relief on their sales of precious minerals and gem stones to boost their slice of revenues from the sector.
