The “oli clay”, as it is also known because it gets shallow,crushed and then extracted tantalum and niobium, which are indispensable capacitors and chips for computers and IPods. The search for mineral explorers stay up late around the world began clearing theforests of the Congo (Africa) to remove more than a decade, a country that holds 80 percent of the reserves and where the control of the mines has generated a war that has left some 5.5 millionvictims.
