The Tanzania Chamber of Mines is a member-based, voluntary private sector organization which brings together a broad spectrum of key players in the commercial mining industry in Tanzania. It was established in 1994 and is registered under the Societies Act [CAP.337 R E. 2002]. The Chamber is the voice of the commercial mining industry and it plays a pivotal role within the sector to provide a recognized liaison point between the commercial mining Industry community and the Government, and between the commercial mining Industry and the public.
The Tanzania Chamber of Mines was established in November 1994 and represents the private participants in the Tanzanian mineral sector. The Chamber is a voluntary private sector organization governed by the Societies Ordinance of 1954 and as a society its affairs are coordinated by the Registrar of Societies under the Ministry of Home Affairs.
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 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 made up of full-time employees (headed by the Executive Secretary) whereas the Office Bearers and members of the Governing Council work on voluntary basis, as and when needed.

The Chamber has different committees dealing with issues of Law, Acts, Regulations, Policies, Security, Exploration, Human Resources, Occupational Health, Safety and Environment. The different Committees are headed by members of the Executive Council.
