Acacia Mining (LSE: ACA) is a gold miner operating in Tanzania, with properties in Kenya, Burkina Faso and Mali. It recently reduced the scale of its operations at the Bulyanhulu mine in Tanzania following a bitter row with the country's government, which caused the share price to plunge.
The miner said the government's decision in March to ban exports of gold and copper concentrate has hit 35% of its production, costing it $210m to date.
