July 29 (Reuters) - Australia's BlackEarth Minerals BEM.AX said on Thursday it had received rights to export its graphite concentrate from Port d'Ehoala in southern Madagascar.
Graphite is considered a "critical" mineral with a range of application, including in the manufacturing of batteries for electric vehicles and in electrodes used for steel making.
The rights cover exports of all graphite-related products from its Maniry project in southern Madagascar, with the port providing all necessary ship-loading services, the graphite explorer said.
The port is owned and operated by global miner Rio Tinto RIO.AX and the government of Madagascar.
