In 2010, Congress enacted the Conflict Minerals provisions of the Dodd‐Frank Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act with the goals of eliminating the illegal trade in gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (Conflict Minerals) and cutting the funding of armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and its neighboring countries that are engaged in human rights abuses.
“Conflict Minerals” are defined as being one or more of the following:
- Cassiterite (derivative metal Tin)
- Columbite-Tantalite (derivative metal Tantalum)
- Wolframite (derivate metal Tungsten)
