T.I.C. interviewed by the BBC
21 June 2017
As part of the T.I.C.'s long term commitment to promoting a better understanding of the global tantalum and niobium markets David Henderson, T.I.C. President, was recently interviewed by the BBC World Service.
Education has been a major policy of Mr Henderson’s presidency and while it is a perennial issue there have been notable results in promoting a more balanced and positive narrative in media.
The interview occurred at a side meeting during the MMTA’s conference in Dublin and as well as giving the BBC background on our metals and their markets, excerpts of the interview were used in a radio program broadcast on May 4th which examined gold and tantalum mining in the Demographic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The radio programme can be listened to on this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05177qq.
Most of the radio programme talks about gold mining in the DRC and other interviewees include Global Witness and a Congolese gold mine owner and presidential candidate called Emmanuel Weyi.
