February 6, 2013 – Sylacauga, AL – Alabama Graphite Corp. (the “Company”) (CNSX:ALP) (Frankfurt: 1AG.F WKN A1J35M) is pleased to report assay results from additional drill holes at the Coosa Graphite Project, Alabama.
Drilling at the Coosa Project consisted of an initial stratigraphic program to gain understanding of the local geology followed by drilling on a 200’ by 200’ grid intended to establish a resource. Previous results reported from the northeast stratigraphic fence included hole AGC-009C which contained 410’ (124.97m) averaging 2.94% graphitic carbon (Cg) and was open at depth. Holes AGC-010C, 011C and 012C were the holes next in the line on this fence. When the results of these holes are included with those of 009C, a continuous graphitic horizon with a true thickness of 940’ (286m) is defined. This unit strikes to the northeast and dips at 35 degrees to the southeast. In addition to its thickness, this unit is notable for its consistency of graphite content. Fewer than 10% of the 276 samples defining this unit contained less than 1.5% Cg.
Results were also received this week from holes AGC-D05C, E01C, E06C, G01C and H01C. The significant results are tabulated below. As seen previously, holes to the northwest of the E-line did not contain significant mineralized intervals as the quartz-muscovite-biotite-graphite schist (QMBGS) lithologic unit comprised the bulk of the core. Previous drill results suggest that this unit is sub-economic with respect to graphite content. Thick intercepts of the favorable quartz-graphite schist (QGS) unit were seen in the remaining holes.
Below is a table summarizing the significant results from the new drill holes:
|Drill Hole||Area||Total Depth (ft)||From (ft)||To (ft)||Width (ft)||Cg%|
|AGC-008C||NE Strat Fence||500’||No significant intercepts|
|AGC-010C||NE Strat Fence||500’||55’||500’||455’||2.89|
|AGC-011C||NE Strat Fence||500’||20’||500’||480’||2.85|
|AGC-012C||NE Strat Fence||500’||50’||135’||85’||3.75|
|AGC- D05C||Resource Grid||254’||No significant intercepts|
CEO, Daniel Spine comments, “The width of the primary graphitic schist horizon continues to surprise us. Our review of the literature on Alabama graphite occurrences did not prepare us for something of this magnitude. We will continue to evaluate the economic significance of this discovery and anticipate sending out samples for size distribution analysis of the graphite flakes in the coming weeks.”
Dana Durgin, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and independent consultant to the Company, has reviewed the contents of this press release. Samples were logged and sampled at the Company’s facility in Sylacauga and shipped to ALS Minerals in Elko, Nevada, for analysis. The samples were analyzed for graphitic carbon (Cg) by the LECO method.
