Important uses of graphite

Graphite is a stable form of naturally occuring carbon, also known as plumbago, blacklead or mineral carbon. Structurally, in the heaxagonal system, graphite is known to crystalise and occur in layered & lamellar shape with grey-black metallic luster and greasy feel.

Natural graphite is divided into two commercial (i) crystalline (flaky) graphite and (ii) amorphous graphite varieties. Graphite quality depends on its physical charcateristics and carbon content.

Blencowe Resources Plc (LON:BRES) is a United Kingdom-based mineral exploration and development company. The Company is focused on exploration and development of the Orom Graphite Project in the Republic of Uganda.
