As far as I know, at this time, the USA does not mine for graphite. Canada and Mexico, together produce ca. 2% of the world's supply. The biggest producer is China. 

Just a little tidbit I picked up online.

A lot of the U.S. Graphite came from Alabama.


Interesting thank you. I think i’m going to send an email to General’s and just ask the where their graphite comes from and see if I get an answer.

There are probably a lot of places to source graphite from. I don't think I've ever seen it listed on any packaging.

it's worth researching.

I just purchased a package of Empire Woodbine Pencils on ebay. Does anyone know about, has or maybe used any of these? They're a made in the 80s natural finish #2 pencil.

thanks in advance,
