Conflict minerals

Download pdfIn 2010, President Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Consumer Protection Act into law. Section 1502 of that act addresses the international trade and use of Conflict Minerals. Like the similar issue of Conflict Diamonds or Blood Diamonds, the term Conflict Minerals refers to raw materials that come from a particular part of the world where conflict is occurring and affects the mining and trading of those materials.
Various international efforts have been made to reduce trade in conflict resources, to reduce the incentive to extract and fight over them. The 2010 Dodd–Frank Reform and Consumer Protection requires manufacturers to audit their supply chains and report conflict minerals usage.

The most commonly mined conflict minerals are cassiterite (for tin), wolframite (for tungsten), coltan (for tantalum), and gold ore, which are extracted from the Eastern Congo, and passed through a variety of intermediaries before being purchased by multinational electronics companies. These minerals are essential in the manufacture of a variety of electronically devices.
