Conflict minerals have ignited and sustained armed violence in eastern Congo and adjoining countries in one of the most deadly of conflicts in recent history. The four main conflict minerals are gold, tin, tantalum, and tungsten. The illegal exploitation of these natural resources in the Congo region is a manifestation of the grand corruption and violence in the country.
Section 1502 on conflict minerals of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (SEC) is a transparency measure. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission now have regulations to have U.S. and certain foreign companies registered with the SEC to report and make public their use of so-called "conflict minerals" from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries are not in their products.
