"Can you determine the mine based on the impurities?"
"Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. We've done that already. It's from the Dacey mine in Tanzania, which is owned by-"
"Quinn Worldwide."
Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz[src]

Tanzania, officially the United Republic of Tanzania, is a country located in East Africa, in the African Great Lakes region.


Tanzania has vast amounts of minerals including gold, diamonds, coal, iron, uranium, nickel, chromium, tin, platinum, cobalt, niobium, natural gas, and others. Quinn Worldwide, a large mining conglomearate, owned Dacey mine in Tanzania.

Gold from this mine was used to pay Todd Chesterfield for the construction equipment used in the kidnapping of Franklin Hall.

When Phil Coulson seized this gold from Chesterfield, Leo Fitz was able to identify its origin as Tanzania from its impurities.[1]
