Conflict Minerals

In the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, the United States Congress enacted legislation that requires certain public companies to disclose their use of ‘Conflict Minerals’. At this time, they define Conflict Minerals as Cassiterite, Columbite-Tantalite, Gold, and Wolframite (and their derivatives) mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries.
