Conflict minerals are ores that, when sold or traded, have played key roles in helping to fuel conflict and extensive human rights abuses, since the late 1990s, in far eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The main conflict minerals are the so-called 3TGs: ores of tantalum and niobium, tin, tungsten, and gold, and their derivatives. Diverse international efforts to break the link between mineral commerce and conflict in central Africa have been proposed or are under way. Key initiatives include government and industry-led mineral tracking and certification schemes. These are designed to monitor trade in minerals to keep armed groups from financially benefitting from this commerce, in compliance with firm-level and/or industry due diligence policies that prohibit transactions with armed groups.   Congress has long been concerned about conflicts and human rights abuses in the DRC. Contents of this report: Conflict and the Role of Minerals; Mineral Sourcing: Chain of Custody Controls and Due Diligence; Section 1502: Overview; U.S. Policies and Programs to Counter Trade in Conflict Minerals; Outlook: Potential Prospective Congressional Role; Appendixes. This is a print on demand report.
