Tantalum & Niobium in Everyday Life
Electronic devices such as mobile phones, jet engines, computer hard drives, hearing aids, cameras, reflective lenses and pacemakers, all depend on these vitally important metals.
Historically, it is the conflict zones of Africa that have been the dominant source of these metals.

Côte d'Ivoire is a non-conflict country and as such, Firering's Coltan assets are expected to attract significant interest from the responsible buyers and traders of Tantalum and Niobium
