About Miller Graphite Mine
The Miller Graphite Mine, located in Grenville Township in Quebec is a past graphite and mica producer with unknown graphite reserves remaining. This mine was worked around 1845 and was probably the first graphite operation in Canada. The quantity of produced graphite is unknown but it is reported that 25 rail cars of lump graphite were shipped from this deposit in the year 1900 and sent to the Globe Refining Company of Jersey City, N.J. This yielded thirty-two tons of clean crucible graphite. The Morgan Crucible Company of London and also J.H. Gauthier and Company, Jersey City, used some of this graphite in their crucibles and pronounced it equal to the best graphite known to come from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). The property covers 15.3 km2 of land and is located 80 km west of Montreal. A main road, located approximately 800 metres from the deposit, is connected by a gravel road to the deposit allowing very easy access. A power line also crosses the property 500 metres south of the deposit. There is no certainty that further exploration will result in the development of similar deposits.
