Graphite is primarily used in the steel industry to line furnaces, ladles and crucibles, and added to steel to increase carbon content. Graphite is also used extensively in the automobile industry in gaskets, brake linings and clutch materials. Other industrial uses include electric motors (carbon brushes), batteries, lubricants and pencils.

The graphite market has been growing exponentially by the demand for lithium ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are used to support increased production of hybrid electric vehicles ("HEV") and electric vehicles ("EV"). In recent months, Tesla’s commitment towards investing in a whole new lithium ion battery powered economy has generated lots of interest in the resource space.
