For the past ten years, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been one of the most severe humanitarian crises in the world. Illegal armed groups and the Congolese National Armed Forces often trigger human rights abuses due to mineral trade. Some people associate this shocking situation with the raw ore trade in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, highlighting the use of minerals in daily consumer goods. Conflict minerals generally include tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold (collectively referred to as 3TG), which are identified as minerals that trigger conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or neighboring countries.
