Acacia Mining employee charged for corrupt activities at North Mara in Tanzania

Acacia Mining PLC said Oct. 11 that one of its employees was charged by the Tanzanian Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau. The employee pleaded not guilty and was granted bail.

The charges relate to historical activities of a land task force formed by the government of Tanzania and North Mara Gold Mine Ltd. in 2012 in a bid to create a better process for valuing land that might be purchased by agreement around the North Mara gold mine. The task force operated between 2013 and 2015.

Acacia Mining said the employee was not involved in the land task force process, and the charges seem to stem from the worker being responsible for signing checks for approved payments made by North Mara Gold Mine at the time, including a check related to the land task force process.

The Tanzanian bureau also brought charges against a number of government officials regarding relationships with North Mara Gold Mine and North Mara, while the company noted that no further charges were brought against North Mara Gold Mine or any of its employees.

Acacia Mining said allegations and issues around the creation and implementation of the land task force have been investigated over the past four years, including by the bureau itself since early 2017, and North Mara Gold Mine and the company have cooperated with authorities throughout.

The company also said its 19-month dispute with the Tanzanian government remains unresolved. It continues to engage with Barrick Gold Corp. to better understand the parent company's expectations regarding its discussions with the government.

The North Mara mine produced 89,287 ounces of gold in the third quarter, a 24% increase year over year.
