The term 'conflict minerals' refers to the metals tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold, from the Democratic Republic of Congo and its neighbouring countries. These metals are also referred to as the 3TG. Trading 3TG from the Democratic Republic of Congo and its neighbouring states enables armed conflict and human rights abuses. The U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Customer Protection Act, Section 1502 and SEC regulations require disclosure of the use of 3TG and transparency within the supply chain. The idea behind this is to end armed conflicts and heed international law.
