Leading Business Action on Conflict Minerals

In the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where armed conflict has claimed more than 5.4 million lives over the past 15 years, militant groups controlling most of the region's mines use the trade in tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold as important sources of funding.
