“Conflict Minerals” refers to minerals or other derivatives mined including Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten, and Gold (“3TG”) of which revenues may be directly or indirectly financing armed groups engaged in civil war resulting in serious social and environmental abuses in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and in the adjoining countries. In July 2010, the United States enacted the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill and Consumer Protection Act § 1502(b) (the “Conflict Minerals Law"), which requires all US stock listed companies and their suppliers to disclose information concerning chain of custody and usage of conflict minerals.
