來自剛果民主共和國 (剛果民主共和國) 和毗鄰國家的鈮-鉭 (鈳鉭鐵礦)、錫石、黑鎢和金, 或其衍生物, 還包括鉭、錫和鎢, 有時被武裝集團開采和出售, 為不公平的勞動行為或侵犯人權行為提供資金支持。 其中一些礦物或衍生物可以進入世界各地使用的產品的供應鏈。 在此背景下，湖南辰州礦業有限責任公司制定這個沖突礦產政策制度, 以避免在采購和加工鎢礦的過程中直接或間接資助或助長受沖突影響地區的武裝團體。
At present, many minerals from Democratic Republic of Congo (RoC) and its adjacent country like Columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, wolframite, gold or their derivatives, also including tantalum, tin and tungsten, sometimes are mined and sold by armed groups for giving financial support for their unfair labor behaviors and violations of human rights. Some of these minerals or derivatives may enter to the product supply chains around the world. Under this background, HUNAN CHENZHOU MINING CO., LTD has released this conflict minerals policy, so as to avoid directly or indirectly supporting or benefiting the armed groups in areas influenced by conflicts in the processes of tungsten ore procurement and processing.
