Conflict Minerals Policy

Geotechnical Instruments (UK) Ltd is committed to complying with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act 2010, by requiring our supplier to disclose whether any minerals contained within the products they provide Geotech has, originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country and, if so, to provide a report describing the measures taken to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of those minerals.

Conflict minerals are minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, and which are sold or traded by armed groups. This has for some years been a particular problem in the DRC. The DRC’s mineral wealth is enormous. It is estimated that the country contains between 65-80% of the world’s columbite-tantalite (coltan) reserves, 49% of its cobalt reserves, and 3% of its copper reserves. Gold and diamond deposits remain under explored. Industrial Diamond reserves are estimated at 25% of world reserves.
