Alabama Graphite Corp. is a Canadian-listed flake graphite exploration and development company. The Company operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, Alabama Graphite Company Inc. (a company registered in the state of Alabama). The most experienced team in the graphite development space leads Alabama Graphite Corp. with more than 100 years of combined graphite mining, graphite processing, specialty graphite products and applications, and graphite sales experience.
The United States imports 100% of all graphite consumed. In order to address U.S. security of supply, Alabama Graphite Corp. is focused on becoming this century’s first graphite-producing mine in the United States and a leading ‘Made in USA’ supplier of specialty coated spherical graphite (or CSPG) for the burgeoning green-energy lithium-ion battery markets.
Alabama Graphite Corp. is focused on the exploration and development of its flagship Coosa Graphite Project in Coosa County, Alabama — the most advanced flake graphite project in the contiguous United States of America — and its Bama Mine Project in Chilton County, Alabama. The Coosa Graphite Project hosts an NI 43-101 Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate of 78.5 million tons grading 2.39% graphitic carbon (Cg) — the largest Indicated Mineral Resource of flake graphite in the United States of America. For more information, please refer to the Company’s technical report titled “Technical Report – Alabama Graphite Corp. – Coosa Project” dated August 30, 2013 prepared by Scott E. Wilson, C.P.G. and Stewart D. Redwood, F.I.M.M.M. and filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Alabama Graphite Corp. holds a 100% interest in the mineral rights for these two U.S.-based graphite projects, which are both located on private land. The two projects encompass more than 43,000 acres and are located in a geopolitically stable, mining-friendly jurisdiction with significant historical production of crystalline flake graphite in the flake graphite belt of central Alabama, also known as the Alabama Graphite Belt (source: U.S. Bureau of Mines). A substantial portion of the Alabama graphite deposits are characterized by graphite-bearing material that is oxidized and has been weathered into extremely soft rock.
Both natural flake graphite projects have infrastructure in place, are within close proximity to major highways, rail, power and water, and are approximately three hours (by truck or train) to the Port of Mobile, the Alabama Port Authority’s deep-seawater port and the ninth largest port by tonnage in the United States (source: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers/USACE). The state of Alabama’s hospitable climate allows for year-round mining operations and the world’s largest marble quarry — which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Sylacauga, Alabama — is located within a 30-minute drive of the Coosa Graphite Project.
Alabama Graphite Corp.’s intent is to address U.S. security of supply of natural CSPG graphite — a supply critical material for American green energy with significant, enduring future demand
The Company is fast tracking project development with the most qualified, most experienced team in the graphite development space
Ideal location allows for just-in-time, MADE IN USA solutions for American customers

The Coosa Graphite Project is the most advanced flake graphite project in the contiguous United States of America
The Coosa Graphite Project hosts an NI 43-101 Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate of 78.5 million tons, grading 2.39 % Cg — the largest Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate of flake graphite in the United States of America
Recent metallurgical testing of Coosa graphite concentrate resulted in purities of 99.99% Cg — the threshold for battery-grade graphite is 99.95% Cg
State-level permitting only; no Federal permitting required and no First Nations issues
Excellent, established infrastructure (roads, electricity, water, rail, close to Alabama’s deep-seawater Port of Mobile) and easy access to markets and customers
The state of Alabama’s hospitable climate allows for year-round mining operations
Located in an excellent, mining-friendly jurisdiction the world’s largest marble quarry — which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Sylacauga, Alabama — is located within a 30-minute drive of the Coosa Graphite Project
Strong support from all levels of state government and local stakeholders
Alabama Graphite Corp. is deeply committed to preserving Alabama’s natural heritage with environmentally conscious and sustainable development
