Graphite in CanadaThere are 2 types of graphite - natural and synthetic. Natural graphite is black with a sub-metallic lustre, feels greasy and stains the fingers. Graphite is found mainly in METAMORPHIC ROCKS, most frequently in schist and as small crystals in impure marbles in association with other minerals.

Timcal Canada Inc, in Lac-des-�les, Quebec, is the only graphite producer in Canada. Other producing countries are Ukraine, Brazil, India, North Korea, Republic of Korea and Mexico.
