The Minjingu phosphate deposit is located 106
km southwest of Arusha, Tanzania along the Arusha-Dodoma highway.
It is of guano-sedimentary origin, hence biogenic in nature, and
is believed to have formed during the Pleistocene age from the
remains and droppings of flamingo birds that inhabited the lake
Manyara region millions of years ago. Some flamingo birds still
inhabit the lake to date.
The Minjingu deposit was discovered in 1956 by
Gold Fields Mines, a South African company that was conducting
a geophysical survey over the lake area. Subsequent to several
field surveys and detailed laboratory analyses of samples taken
from the area, a statutory mining company by the name of Minjingu
Phosphate Company (MIPCO) was established under the auspices
of the Tanzania State Mining Corporation (STAMICO). The company’s
main roles were to mine and process the Minjingu Phosphate Rock
(MPR), and to supply it to the Tanzania Fertilizer Company (TFC)
factory in Tanga where it was further processed into chemical
phosphate fertilizers such as Single Super Phosphates (SSP)
and Triple Super Phosphates (TSP).
However, due to some managerial problems as well as change of
country policy, The Tanga factory was closed down and the government
later privatized MIPCO and renamed the company Minjingu Mines
and Fertilizer Ltd. ( MMFL). MMFL has been mining and processing
the Minjingu ore into powder for direct farm application in
Tanzania and for the export market. Due to the proven effectiveness
of the MRP as a direct farm application fertilizer, MMFL has
now decided to change its brand name to Minjingu Organic Hyper
