Conflict Minerals: To Source Responsibly You Must Know the Source

Conflict minerals are commonly referred to as 3TG or the ’three T’s’ and gold.

In order to get the right information, supply chain managers must monitor the smelters, the only entities that know the true source of the minerals they refine.
