As a global leader in the distribution of high performance copper alloys, Busby Metals is committed to ensuring the safety, health and protection of people and the environment everywhere in the world. As required by the Conflict Minerals provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, HR 4173, Section 1502 (“Conflict Minerals Act”), Busby Metals will work with our suppliers to confirm that their supply of materials does not contain conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country.
Busby Metals has not and will not knowingly purchase raw material supplies that contain conflict minerals which directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC or an adjoining country. Due to the complexity of the routes by which metals, and in particular precious metals, are smelted, recycled and sold, including the common practice of commingling ores and scrap from many different sources, it is often impossible for any company to obtain full traceability to an exact origin of all. However, we will take continuous practical action to seek to ensure that minerals from the conflict region do not enter our supply chain, including obtaining reliable certificates of origin for all materials that might possibly originate in conflict areas or adjacent countries.
