- Shanta Gold notes the publication of draft legislation in Tanzanian that proposes changes to the legal framework governing the natural resources sector in that country.

"We understand that this legislation is to be debated by the Parliament in an extended Parliamentary session," the company said in a statement.

"In addition, Parliament has approved the new Finance Act, which will impose a 1% clearing fee on the value of all minerals exported from the country from 1 July 2017," it said.

"Shanta will seek advice on the proposed changes and will provide further updates as appropriate."
