The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 70

(11) Graphite

(11) Graphite.

Plumbago occurs in many localities, but never sufficiently pure or in sufficient quantity to be permanently worked. Prior to 1865, 7 tons of the manufactured article was exported from Pakawau, near Collingwood (Nelson), but nothing has since been done to continue the trade. In addition to this locality, graphite has been found in Wellington Province, at several places also in Canterbury, Otago, and Westland.
