Competitive Advantages

 

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

100% ownership of two flake graphite deposits in Alabama, USA — the Coosa Graphite Project and the Bama Mine Project — mineral leases cover 43,000 acres on private land

The two projects 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).

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 of flake graphite in the United States of America

Metallurgical testing of Coosa graphite concentrate resulted in purities of 99.99% graphitic carbon (Cg) across all flake sizes — the threshold for battery-grade graphite is 99.95% Cg

State-level permitting only; no Federal permitting required (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

 

Note: in management’s view, there are very few graphite development projects worldwide with a realistic probability of going into production, due to remote locations and high associated transportation costs, limited infrastructure and hydroelectric power, prohibitive CAPEX/OPEX costs, indigenous/aboriginal concerns, environmental and federal permitting issues, geopolitical instability, and inexperienced management
