Visual Impact Assessment is undertake to assess if there is/will be any visibility impacts caused by the established undertakings e.g. If a process plant may block a certain community from seeing the important features. MTL uses the view shed analysis with GIS as well as stakeholder engagement in undertaking Visual Impact Assessments.
MTL has successfully undertaken Visual Impact Assessment for the Ntaka Hill Nickel Project in Nachingwea, Uranium Project in Mkuju, Panda Hill Niobium Mining in Mbeya, and Graphite Project in Ruangwa and Mahenge.
