As a result of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the Conflict Minerals rules recently adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), many companies, including many of our customers, are required to make disclosures regarding whether “conflict minerals” used to manufacture their products originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) or the adjoining countries (collectively, together with the DRC, the “Covered Countries”). These “conflict minerals” consist of columbite-tantalite, cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, which are initially limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten (collectively, the “Conflict Minerals”).
Mason Corporation hereby identifies “tin” as a conflict mineral that is used in the manufacturing of our products.
Mason Corporation certifies to the best of its knowledge, after due inquiry, as follows:
- None of the Tin is derived from the recycled or scrap sources
- The Tin is not sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Rwanda, South Sudan, Uganda, or Zambia (the “Conflict Countries”)
Mason Corporation has conducted in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry with respect to any conflict minerals necessary to the functionality of products manufactured by Supplier, or contracted by Supplier to be manufactured.
Mason Corporation will not purchase any tin bearing material known or suspected to have originated in the DRC or any of the “Conflict Countries”.
