CONFLICT MINERALS

"Conflict Minerals" refers to tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold, which are derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. There is an increasing awareness of violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from an area described as the "Conflict Region", located in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. As a result, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘Act’) of 2010 directed the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to adopt rules to implement disclosure requirements related to these "Conflict Minerals". These rules apply to manufacturers who file periodic reports with the SEC and who manufacture or contract to manufacture products containing "conflict minerals" that are "necessary to the functionality or production" of those products. These manufacturers are required to make inquiries as to the origin of these "conflict minerals" and file a report with the SEC to describe and disclose the results of those inquiries.

Oxford Alloys does not knowingly procure any products containing tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold that originates from the Conflict Region, unless our Seller confirms that the product or its raw materials originate from mines or smelters that are certified as "conflict free". To ensure compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act, our Sellers are required to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to determine whether the specified metals, if any exist in their respective products, are being sourced from:

1. Mines and smelters outside the Conflict Region or
2. Mines and smelters which have been certified by an independent third party as "conflict free", if sourced within the Conflict Region.

Sellers are required to provide written documentation to Oxford Alloys to confirm whether the raw materials tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold used in the manufacture of the products supplied to Oxford Alloys originated from outside the Conflict Region or, if the raw material originated from within the Conflict Region, that the mines or smelters are certified as "conflict free" by an independent third party. If Oxford Alloys discovers that a Seller has not provided proper documentation or submits inaccurate documentation or utilized facilities that are not certified "conflict free", Oxford Alloys may terminate any PO, return any non-conforming products or seek any further relief or remedies provided herein.
