Bulyanhulu is situated in north-west Tanzania, in the Kahama district of the Shinyanga region, approximately 55 km south of Lake Victoria and 150 km southwest of the city of Mwanza, a regional business and economic hub.

Bulyanhulu is a narrow-vein gold mine containing gold, silver and copper mineralisation in sulphides. The mineralisation of Bulyanhulu is associated with a number of steeply-dipping veins.

Bulyanhulu commenced commercial production in 2001 and has now produced over 3 million ounces to date. The mine is currently only producing gold from a tailings re-treatment operation and is undergoing an update of the underground mine design for scheduled restart in 2020.
