CIMA, the comment about Donner was tongue in cheek. I believe graphite is very common and cheap. It does however create geophysical anomolies that excite explorers looking for nickel or kimberlites and when drilled creates bitter disappointment.

There is no spot price for graphite, like many industrial minerals. It does not trade like gold or silver on a market like the COMEX. Graphite is mined and sold as various products with different properties. The "price" is set by the producers and consumers.
