Graphite Ore is an allotropic form of carbon and mostly used in making pencils, crucibles and electrotypes as a lubricant among others. It  is also called black lead due to its nature. It also conducts electricity; very important in human daily activities

coal11What is Graphite Ore

It is a mineral allotrope of carbon. It is dark gray to black, opaque, and very soft. Its layered structure, with rings of six atoms arranged in widely spaced parallel sheets, gives it its slippery quality. It occurs in nature and is used (mixed with clay) as the “lead” in pencils. It is also used in lubricants, crucibles, polishes, arc lamps, batteries, brushes for electric motors, and nuclear reactor cores.

Its Uses

The major use of graphite is in making lead pencils of different hardness, by mixing it with different proportions of clay. The weakly held layers of carbon atoms in graphite easily slide over each other and are left behind on paper as black marks. Due to its slippery nature, graphite is used as a dry lubricant in machine parts. Being resistant to chemicals and having a high melting point and also because it is a good conductor of heat, graphite is used to make crucibles. The presence of free electrons makes graphite a good conductor of electricity and it is used to make electrodes. Graphite has the ability to absorb fast-moving neutrons, thus, it is used in nuclear reactors to control the speed of the nuclear fission reaction. Traditional demand for graphite is largely tied to the steel industry where it is used as a liner for ladles and crucibles, as a component in bricks which line furnaces (“refractories”), and as an agent to increase the carbon content of steel.  In the automotive industry it is used in brake linings, gaskets and clutch materials.  Graphite also has a myriad of other uses in batteries, lubricants, fire retardants, and reinforcements in plastics.

Mining Graphite

It is mined using the pit and underground methods.  The open pit is the most method that is used in mining graphite and it employs heavy equipment like front end loaders and bulldozers to scoop up the ore which is usually put in trucks and moved to the plant.

The underground mining employs drilling and blasting to break up the hard rock which is then moved by the mine cars and pulled by a locomotive or automotive vehicle to the surface before it is taken to the plant.

It occurs naturally in metamorphic rocks such as marble schist and gneiss. It is soft and has Mohs hardness of 1 to 2 and exhibits perfect basal cleavage and the specific gravity is 2.20 to 2.30 and a theoretical density of 2.26 per cubic centimeter.  It is flexible but not elastic, high thermal and electrical conductivities, is highly refractory, and is chemically inert.

Two general types of graphite, natural and synthetic, are encountered. Worldwide, natural graphite deposits occur as lenses or layers of disseminated or massive flakes.
