I would pretty much expect that tantalum resources on Earth have largely dried up by 2300AD. Small quantities may still be produced here and there and some more may yet be found under the oceans, but no nation is going to be building a fleet of stutterwarp capable warships from what's left on Earth.

However GDW original distribution of tantalum is fiction and a bit unrealistic, and ignored (most likely they werent aware) were most of the worlds tantalum actualy comes from. Sort of like claiming that Switzerland is a major producer of oil and that no oil is to be found in Saudi Arabia or Texas.
