Stories from the Field - benefits of responsible mineral trade through the iTSCi programme (September 2017)

17 September 2017

The iTSCi Programme enables responsible 3T mineral production and trade across the Great Lakes region of central Africa and internationally. While our work was started as a response to conflict concerns and negative circumstances, promotion of trade can bring many benefits.

This month we are pleased to be able to provide a ‘Story from the field’ describing how iTSCi has improved the conditions of 3T mining operations since its arrival in Shabunda as well as another story on how problems with transport infrastructure are challenging mining in Maniema where some issues have been resolved but many difficulties remain. 

  •     Infrastructure challenges mining in Maniema (in English or French)
  •     Responsible tin offers better business than gold (in English or French)


If you are interested in more information please visit www.itsci.org. We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how iTSCi can be improved.

The iTSCi Programme aims to work within the OECD’s framework and to comply with the UN guidelines to create a system that assists companies with traceability, due diligence and audit requirements that arise from purchasing 3T minerals, particularly from the DRC and Rwanda. The T.I.C. and ITRI sit on the iTSCi Governance Committee.
