We will always strive to remain transparent, and stay true to our bedrock principles.

Stalwart Ventures LLC is an established and well-respected company, exporting conflict-free Coltan from Nigeria. Together, with our trusted partners, we have over 30 combined years experience in the mining industry, making us one of the longest operating mining company in Nigeria. We export conflict-free Coltan in full compliance with the standard and governance of the mineral industry.


Stalwart Ventures has been a reputable sub-contractor for companies who worked directly with Fannie Mae, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. It gained extensive experience in property development, restoration, and preservation which significantly improved the standard of living of many of its residents. We’re a company that is in good standing with the state of Maryland and celebrate the remarkable contributions we have made.


The urgent need to provide conflict-free Coltan has become paramount to us. Central to our mission is the health, protection, and wellbeing of children, and impacting the lives of as many people as we can. It is the driving force which has led us to join the international community to end the use of Coltan to finance wars in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) by local militia groups and mercenaries. In addition, we are contributing to the mitigation of the massive devastation it is doing to the country.


Our miners are well vetted and provided with economic opportunities and improved standard of living. We have a policy of zero-tolerance when it comes to child labor. This is strictly enforced and closely monitored. Our employees have a safe and healthy working environment and an improved security system that enables them to work freely and effectively.


We have a fully-equipped team operating both in the United States and on-ground in Nigeria. The Nigerian team includes an Engineer and Resource Scientist, a Geologist, and the Project Coordinator. The United States team is staffed with a Computer Engineer, Marketing Director, and the International Development Program Director. Dr. John Obaoye, the CEO and President, is a highly respected and effective leader, who streamline operations between the two countries by utilizing the skills and expertise of his entire team.

Our strength lies in our integrity, accountability, and excellence.
