Investment Stages

Investment Stage Invested Amount Expected Results

Full Start Your Own Gold Mine Program

US $66,000

Viable Gold Production, small-scale gold mining with capacity reached for 5 tonnes of hard rock processing per day, and 8 tonnes of alluvial and tailings processing per hour. With 4 sluices and 10 hours of work per day and gold grade of 0.50 we can make 1200 grams of gold, equivalent to US $63723 per month plus additional income from rock processing.

Development stage

Production develops, no additional investment necessary

We may set up 10 or 20 sluices. With 10 sluices and 20 hours of work per day and gold grade of 0.50 we can make 6000 grams of gold, equivalent to US $325844 per month.

Arrival of mining equipment by managing partner, requires about 3 months

Included as privileged benefit from our side

Expected additional kilograms per month, 1-2 kilograms

Upgrade of investment by client in different stages, most important is the grinding capacity of 150 tonnes per hour and heavy equipment to move the sand fast into the machinery so that we may finish the project in 1.5 years

US $184,000 is rough estimate, it could be anything from US $30,000 to US $1,000,000 and more, this depends of our purchasing and manufacturing ability, we tend to go for our own manufacturing option to minimize expenses maximally

Final capacity reached for 150 tonnes per hour, 24 hours working day, possible outcome is 500 kg wihtin 1.5 years of work from 1,000,000 tonnes of processed ores

Proposed mining site

While Start Your Own Gold Mine requires visits to several mining sites and conducting the Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection, the proposed mining site for the partner who will have available US $250,000 for the project is the tailings site with 3,000,000 tonnes located in Tanzania.

General Background of the Site

The Tanzanian Mining Act allows Tanzanians to obtain Primary Mining Licenses for purposes of small scale mining. Small scale mining may also mean production of 10 kilograms of gold and more. It means that there are not so many people employed, number of people employed is usually 50 to 200 people while in large scale there are 3000-10000 people employed. Smaller type of equipment is used in small scale mining, while large scale uses huge machines. Small scale mining is usually financed by clients and their partners or partner banks, while large scale mining are usually companies on the public market that are financed by public sales of shares in companies.

Primary Mining License have been introduced to us by one of our associates. Our company Start Your Own Gold Mine knows and have indirect connection to all kinds of people skilled in mining. In Tanzania we know more than 2000 people.

License has been issued in 2018 and is valid for 7 years. If production is conducted on such license, it can be continued indefinitely and extended for further 7 years.

Close distance to the Lake Victoria enables water source to be used for special gravitational processing and usage of equipment meant for recovery of fine gold. It is not larger than 10 hectares or 24.71 acres.

Previous known history of the gold production on land relates to mining of lode ores or mother lodes which are rocks that contain original gold. There is current production of gold out of rock mining methods in a small scale.

The licensed area have been used to collect tailings or remnant ores that have been already processed and which still contain gold that can be recovered. Our company is specialized for tailings processing so to recover up to 98% of gold particles. The estimated size of tailings is up to 3 million tonnes.

Current reports show average of 2-4 grams of gold per tonne and principals are already conducting cyanidation processing and receiving good profits out of it.

Their rate of production is slow. We can improve the rate even 10 times more.

Available resources on the mining land are gold cyanidation plant, and standard mining equipment such as crushers, winches, compressors, generators, for rock mining.

Our intention is to upgrade the mining site so that both rock mining and tailings processing may be conducted.

On October 10th, 2019, we have conducted negotiations with license holders. Present was our director from Kenya due to the fact that he spoke the local language known to certain tribe. Present were all other relevant people and partners.

First negotiation have been concluded in such manner that our side, our company or our clients would receive 60% from rock mining and 40% from tailings for the reason that partners have invested much money into tailings and that they would not like losing values.

However, we said that minimum shall be 50% and we remained until the next site visit is conducted.

Volume of Tailings

The volume or weight of tailings according to present documented papers is 3 milliones of tonnes.

We wish to conduct Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection and Tailings Sampling project so to confirm the actual volume and density of the available ores, and especially to measure the practically recoverable gold.

Prenegotiation terms

We have pre-negotiated 60% for our side, 40% for partners' side in Tanzania, as they are the party which invested into the tailings. On the same site there is rock mining, we have pre-negotiated 60% for our side and 40% for their side.

With the equipment on ground and commitment to start the work, we may negotiate 50% for our side.

In general, the possible yield is so much more than the investment amount and we do not need to be picky with the negotations.

Production Estimate

Establishment Stage

The establishment stage is first 4 months as that is the time necessary to purchase, manufacture, transport available equipment and setup legal agreements with the minining sites.

Production Stage

After the establishment stage comes production stage. With 10 sluices and 10 hours of work per day and gold grade of 0.40 we can make 2400 grams of gold, equivalent to US $127447 per month. We estimate production to 20-50 kilograms per year in the first stage and then due to available mining sites to 50-100 kilogram per month in the second stage.

Estimated opportunity

Until we finalize the Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection and conduct Sampling Tailings project, we are downplaying the current known information that tailings volume or the volume of the ore dump is 1 million tonnes, instead of 3 million tonnes.

Even though that current gold grade is known to be over 2 grams, we are downplaying the gold grade to 0.50 grams, to be sure that our calculations and estimates will have good practical impact.

Thus for the volume of 1 million of tonnes of tailings multiplied by some average of 0.50 grams per tonne, we are expecting the yield of 500000 grams or 500 kilograms.

Considering that current value of gold is , then the value of 500 kilograms of gold shall be .

Considering that we would be retaining minimum of 40% of that amount, and that taxes are 30% and that expenses of processing shall be estimated to be about 10% of the amount, we may put the values into the table for better thinking.

Estimated value less 5% of impurities

Value deducted for expenses of 10%

Value deducted for 30% taxes

Value deducted for partner share of 60%, could be 50%


Value deducted for management partner 40%




Time required to accomplish the project is 1-3 years, provided that continous upgrades of grinding and processing equipment is conducted on the mining site.

With 10 sluices and 24 hours of work per day and gold grade of 0.50 we can make 7200.00 grams of gold, equivalent to US $265680.00 per month. Increasing the number of sluices and grinding capacity, we can speed up the execution of this project.

This report will get more accurate estimate of the opportunity after the finalization of the Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection and Tailings Sampling project.

Minimization of Taxes

The taxes may be minimized by using different strategies:

Gold deliveries to foreign countries

A locally registered Tanzanian company need not be the main bearer of the business. When foreign company is main investor, the money may be invested with the purpose to deliver gold with discount. This means that a tax structure may be devised that UAE company or other offshore company regularly orders gold with discount. Because companies are from the same investor, the discount may be even 70%. Investor could pay 30000 dollars to get 100000 dollars. If Tanzanian company has spent 15000 dollars to produce gold of 100000 dollars, it would pay only 4500 dollars in taxes instead of 30000 dollars in taxes.

Thus tax minimization may be made down to 5% effectively by using foreign companies.

Negotiation with tax authority

It is possible to negotiate with tax authority in Tanzania and minimize taxes even down to 5% of what should be 30%, that requires understanding of doing business. When a company produces millions of dollars, this subject becomes very important.

My name is Jean Marc Louis, and I am business manager and consultant in variety of areas. Since 2012, I have visited Tanzania, and prepared several mining lands with my former company GOLDIVANTI (TANZANIA) LIMITED. The knowledge that I have acquired in 2012, and begin of 2013. I have used to develop the methods, guidance for a full business program that is named Start Your Own Gold Mine.

SAM 0170

The abundance of non-developed mining lands in Tanzania, and the large number of my contacts, brought me to idea to bring foreign investors to Tanzania, and so I have developed a program that helps investors arrive to Tanzania and start their own gold mining activity.

The program Start Your Own Gold Mine also helps the local Tanzanian license holders, as we are helping them develop the mining lands forward.

Today we have expanded into each country of East Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Congo. We have brought new investors to Tanzania, to Kenya, to Uganda, and we have helped our clients start their gold mines.


Gold bearing ore

means the ore containing enough gold profitable to be mined.

Gold present

is the amount of gold actually existing or present in the deposit.

Gold recoverable

is the amount of gold which can be extracted from the deposit by the use of any of the well known processes, such as a pan, sluice box, concentrator, centrifugal separator, dry washer, or any other process of ore processing.


refers to host rock that contains gold. Lode gold may be free milling and appear as stringers, thick sheets or fine wires; or it may be so minute that a microscope is required to see it.


The refuse part of stamped ore, thrown behind the tail of the buddle or washing apparatus. It is dressed over again to secure whatever metal may exist in it.

Tangible gold bearing ore

this is ore that we are dealing with. We do not deal with ores that are not tangible, maybe written or identified in some reports or vague hearsay stories. We are looking for tangible gold bearing ores.

Ore dump

An ore dump is a pile or pile or heap of ore. The ore making up a dump is usually selected roughly for each particular dump, that is, high grade ore is usually dumped in one pile, medium in another, and waste discarded. Reference: Samplings Series No. 2, page 2-3
