new law aims to shine light on conflict metals
Great article from NPR regarding new rules proposed to prevent the purchase of weapons and ammunition from the sales of minerals in Eastern Congo. What is interesting is how when I see the words “conflict metals” I think precious metals but the article instead is about tin, tungsten and tantalum which are used primarily in the electronics industry. I wonder if the proposed SEC rules would trickle down to precious metals and the jewelry industry? Read or listen here and send your feedback!
