The entire minerals industry is regulated to the point that it is cheaper for companies to offshore their operations than to operate within the USA, which is partially responsible for the current economic health of the USA.

There are way too many rules, regulations and laws that are destroying exploration harvesting natural resources, which in turn have been slowly destroying American Jobs. Therefore this "Specialized Disclosure of Use of Conflict Minerals Under Dodd-Frank Act" should be trashed and never utilized.
