Conflict minerals refer to tantalum, tungsten, tin, and gold originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”). There are concerns that the conflict minerals fund armed forces of the Covered Countries Causing many deaths of their own people and infringement of human rights in the course of mineral excavation such as forced labor and abuse of women and children.
