Interesante información sobre el coltan

November 15, 2008


I have found an interesting scientific article appeared last year on the Spanish newspaper EL PAIS on Coltan. According to the author, Rosario Lunar, there is lack of scientific studies on the mineral. She has a good point on a key issue regarding coltran trade: traceability.  If research on the mineral could provide a reliable method to identify its origin in the lab, a big step would have been done to stop the traffic of Coltan from the DRC.
