The Tanzania Chamber of Mines was established in November 1994 and represents the private participants in the Tanzanian mineral sector.
The membership, now close to 50, includes a broad spectrum of key players in the mining industry drawn from the largest international mining companies in the world, medium scale miners, junior explorers and service providers, who have identified Tanzania as a worthwhile mining investment destination. These companies are carrying out exploration and mineral production activities. The Chamber is the voice of the industry and it plays a pivotal role within the sector to provide a recognized liaison point between the mining industry investment community and the Government, and between the mining industry and the public. This pivotal role has evolved over time to become one of a partnership with the Government in addressing country specific challenges such as job creation, poverty alleviation and attracting investment.
The Tanzania Chamber of Mines is governed by a "Council" that consists of 4 office bearers (Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer) and 5 other members from among the membership. The constitution allows for 4 co-opted members who can join the Council by virtue of their knowledge or sector interest or skills in the mining industry. The Secretariat is run by an Executive Secretary.
