TORONTO, ONTARIO and MUNICH, GERMANY–(Marketwired – June 20, 2017) – TANTALEX Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX)(CSE:TTX.CN)(CNSX:TTX)(FRANKFURT:1T0) (“TANTALEX” or the “Corporation“), is very pleased to announce that it has been granted the iTSCi Exportation Certification, allowing the Company to export its future mineral production (tantalum, lithium, tin) worldwide with the guarantee that its production supply chain follows humane guidelines set out within the iTSCi framework.
Dave GAGNON, Chief Executive Officer explains, “We have worked very hard over the last 24 months to meet iTSCi’s standards and requirements. Becoming a member of this very important establishment is a major milestone that is of particular importance especially where future offtake partners are concerned. Having this certification is a big step forward for the Company as we prepare our first shipment of Tantalum Pentoxide out of the DRC. We can now provide the guarantee that our minerals are conflict-free.”
About the iTSCi Export Certification
iTSCi is a joint industry programme of traceability and due diligence designed to address concerns over ‘conflict minerals’ such as cassiterite from central Africa. The iTSCi system aims to meet the needs of companies wishing to maintain trade with responsible supply chain actors in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, as well as to meet due diligence expectations of the international community in terms of guidance from the UN, OECD and national laws such as the Dodd Frank Act in the US.
Sylvain GIFFARD, Senior VP adds, “We are currently seeing significant demand for our tantalum product and this certification increases our potential customer base, as many purchasers will not buy mineral production from resource companies who do not have this certification.”
