Conflict Minerals are minerals originating from areas of armed conflict and human rights abuse, notably in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
These minerals are traded through middlemen from neighbouring countries, so countries where conflict materials can originate from include also Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Congo Republic, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
The most commonly mined minerals are cassiterite, wolframite,coltan, and gold, which are extracted from the Eastern Congo, We are concerned about cassiterite (basis for making tin) and gold, as these metals are used in our production process.
We contacted our suppliers for these metals and got confirmation that the material we receive from them do not origin from conflict areas. Based on this information we can issue a conflict minerals declaration.
