February 25, 2013 – Sylacauga, Alabama – Alabama Graphite Corp. (the “Company”) (CNSX:ALP) (Frankfurt: 1AG.F WKN A1J35M) is pleased to report additional assay results from its 2012 drilling program at the Coosa Graphite Project, Alabama.
Results were received this week from diamond drill holes AGC-E02C, E08C, F04C, F07C, F08C, H02C and H04C. The drill core was logged and sampled at the Company’s facility in Sylacauga and shipped to ALS Minerals in Elko, NV, for analysis. The samples were analyzed for graphitic carbon (Cg) by the LECO method. Of interest were the results from hole E08C as previous assay results from holes along the E-line did not contain significant mineralized intervals.
Below is a table summarizing the significant results from the new core holes:
|Drill Hole||Area||Total Depth ft’ (m)||From: ft’ (m)||To: ft’ (m)||Core Length ft’ (m)||Cg%|
|AGC-E02C||Resource Grid||237’ (72.24m)||190’ (57.91m)||210’ (64m)||20’ (6.1m)||2.26|
|AGC-E08C||Resource Grid||276’ (84.12m)||25’ (7.62m)||270’ (82.3m)||245’ (74.68m)||2.90|
|AGC- F04C||Resource Grid||256’ (78.03m)||45’ (13.72m)||100’ (30.48m)||55’ (16.76m)||2.35|
|And||185’ (56.4m)||256’ (78.03m)||71’ (21.64m)||2.69|
|AGC- F07C||Resource Grid||265’ (80.77m)||40’ (12.19m)||265’ (80.77m)||225’ (68.58m)||2.70|
|AGC- F08C||Resource Grid||256’ (78.03m)||60’ (18.29m)||250’ (76.2m)||190’ (57.91m)||2.60|
|AGC- H02C||Resource Grid||252’ (76.81m)||55’ (16.76m)||195’ (59.44m)||140’ (42.67m)||3.33|
|Including||90’ (27.43m)||115’ (35.05m)||25’ (7.62m)||4.24|
|AGC- H04C||Resource Grid||272’ (82.91m)||59’ (17.98m)||245’ (74.68m)||186’ (56.69m)||2.71|
|Including||59’ (17.98m)||75’ (22.86m)||16’ (4.88m)||

Dr. Douglas Oliver, VP Exploration, comments, “We remain on track to have all the drill core processed within the month of February. With improved turnaround times at ALS Minerals, we anticipate having all the data in hand by late March. At that point we will deliver the drill results to Metal Mining Consultants, Inc. (formerly Scott E. Wilson Consulting) who will use it to determine an initial mineral resource estimate. Alabama Graphite is dedicated toward moving this project forward as quickly and efficiently as possible.” Drilling on the 200 feet by 200 feet resource grid at the Coosa Project consisted of 54 vertical core holes. With the receipt of the current assays, 27, or half of the core drill holes within the resource grid, have been completely processed including logging, processing and receipt of assay results. The remaining 27 core holes are in various stages of the evaluation process. In addition, the majority of the sonic holes drilled through the oxidized portion of the project area are also being processed.
