@MiningBookGuy Acacia Mining losing US$1m a day due to Tanzania export ban http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/03/24/acacia-mining-losing-1m-day-due-tanzania-export-ban/ (h/t @sndwky) $ACA.L #Tanzania #gold #copper ~AUfrica #index Partial Quotes: "The ban affects products from two of Acacia’s three mines; its North Mara mine is unaffected. Acacia has enjoyed a turnaround in fortunes of late and is thought to be generating enough free cash to cover short-term costs from the export ban. However the uncertainty surrounding the ban led to Endeavour Mining of Canada pulling out of merger talks earlier this week. The deal would have created a $3bn gold miner with assets across Africa." $EDV
