Statement on Conflict Minerals


The “Conflict Minerals” Law was passed by the United States Congress as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Section 1502). The law requires publicly traded companies to report on the use of conflict minerals that are used in the manufacture of their products.  


Conflict minerals are gold, wolframite (used to extract tungsten), cassiterite (used to extract tin), and coltan (used to extract tantalum) in mines that are controlled by armed groups in the covered countries of: Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.  


As a privately held company, Motion Tech Automation, LLC and its dba Lion Precision, are not required to report to the SEC. However, as a supplier to publicly traded companies, we have performed the following:


  • Conducted reasonable country of origin inquiries with our first-tier suppliers, and where minerals contained in these products have originated in the above listed countries,
  • Performed reasonable due diligence within our supply chain to determine the origin and custody of conflict minerals.


As of this date, our first-tier suppliers have self-certified that they do not supply MTA with conflict minerals originating in covered countries.


MTA is committed to not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups committing human rights violations in covered countries. MTA’s suppliers are expected to ensure that products supplied to MTA are conflict-free. We will continue to monitor all existing suppliers and new suppliers for evidence of compliance with this law.
