Shanta Gold Limited is a gold mining company, registered in Guernsey in the Channel Islands but which operates in Tanzania. The company is listed on AIM on the London Stock Exchange (symbol: LON:SHG) and had a market capitalisation of £63.5M as of 18 September 2013.[1] The Tanzanian offices are in Dar Es Salaam. Its bankers are UBS.[2]

Shanta's most important project is New Luika Gold Mine, in the Lupa Gold Field of south western Tanzania, which saw its first gold pour in August 2012.[3] The company's mines are all currently in Tanzania but projects elsewhere in East Africa are envisaged. Shanta sub-contracts all aspects of the mining process in order to shorten the time taken for a new mine to become productive.
