Graphite is a form of the element carbon. It’s used to make lubricants, automobile brake parts, and pencils, plays a vital role in battery metals. Graphite is a conductor of electricity and heat, so the material is also widely used in making batteries, solar panels, and mobile phones. In addition, graphite is used in steel production. Its industrial application is therefore diverse, and is expected to grow through the accelerating global demand for lithium-ion batteries.
While synthetic graphite can be made from coal, there has been interest in the so-called ‘super mineral’ graphene, which is derived from graphite. This, too, could lead to increased demand in graphite mining.
Graphite mining is performed with either open pit or shaft mining.
