Apple's conflict mineral-free verified supply chain smelters & refiners 2009-2015 This statistic shows the number of conflict mineral-free verified smelters and refiners there are in Apple's supply chain from 2009 to 2015. In 2010, there were two reported smelters or refiners in Apple's supply chain (out of a total of 109 smelters or refiners) that were either participating in or verified through a third-party audit to guarantee that they were not using tantalum, tin, tungsten, or gold (also know as 3TG) from regions where these materials are produced in conditions of armed conflict or human rights abuses. By 2015, all of the smelters and refiners in Apple's supply chain were verified to not be using conflict minerals.
