Hi Peter,

Thanks for the shoutout to MetalMiner and what we provide – in addition, we're hosting a one-day seminar/training day/TED-talk-style forum for manufacturers on Conflict Minerals compliance tools: "Conflict Minerals EDGE". 

It's on Monday, May 6 in downtown Chicago. More details here: http://conflictmineralsedge.eventbrite.com

Hope some of your readers can make it!

Best, 

Taras
