USA Graphite Inc. Canadian Project Selection

USA Graphite Inc. Canadian Project Selection 
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 --  USA GRAPHITE INC.
(OTCBB: USGT) (the "Company") is pleased to inform its shareholders
of its activities in selecting the location of a high-quality
Canadian project for a potential acquisition. 
Canada is one of the world's dominant producers of high grade flake
graphite and, according to the United States Geological Survey
("USGS"), the United States imported 19% of its graphite from Canada
in 2011. The Company expects this number to increase in 2012 and rise
even further in 2013 as demand for graphite is soaring due to larger
production runs on both products requiring graphite and new
applications for the super-material graphene. 
Due to Canada's proximity to the United States, its highly developed
infrastructure, and the availability of skilled labor, the Company
believes that ownership of a Canadian project, which would be able to
supply sufficient tonnage of high-quality graphite to the Company's
American operations, would enable the Company to assume a key
strategic advantage. 
The Company has identified the West Coast of Canada as the ideal
location to acquire a project that would significantly augment the
Company's operations. Eagle Graphite, which is a privately held
Canadian corporation, is located on the West Coast of Canada and is
one of only two natural flake graphite mines operating in North
America. The Company believes that this district would be an ideal
location for an acquisition.  
The Company expects a deal to be stuck in the short term and will
keep its shareholders updated. USA Graphite's CEO, Wayne Yamamoto,
comments: "We are excited with our progress in selecting a
high-quality Canadian project that can access Canada's world class
graphite production and steer that tonnage back into our American
operations." 
About Graphite:  


 
--  Graphite is used in refractories - used to line high-temperature
    equipment; pencils; lithium-ion batteries - used in consumer
    electronics and electric vehicles, including the Nissan Leaf, Tesla
    Model S and others; fuel cells; and Pebble Bed nuclear reactors. It is
    used in foundries, lubricants and brake linings.
--  Graphite is also used to produce graphene, a tightly packed single
    layer of carbon atoms that can be used to make inexpensive solar
    panels, powerful transistors, and even a wafer-thin tablet that could
    be the next-generation iPad* or iPod*.
--  Graphene, extremely light and strong, has been called the world's next
    wonder material.
--  The closure of graphite mines in China, which produces 75% of the
    world's graphite, has resulted in a fall in global graphite production
    to 1.3 million tonnes per annum in 2011. Like rare earths, China is
    restricting the export of graphite to protect its own domestic
    industries. The second largest producer is India, followed by Brazil,
    North Korea, Austria and Canada.

About USA Graphite: 
 USA Graphite is a publicly traded US
exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration and
development of world-class graphite properties in North America. USA
Graphite intends to become a domestic (US) graphite supplier. The
USGS has reported that the USA has been a 100% net importer of
graphite over the last 5 years, sending billions of dollars out of
America. USA Graphite has holdings in Nevada, offering considerable
potential for the discovery and development of large flake,
high-grade graphite, whereby mineralization is exposed at surface and
clearly evident at economic depths. For additional information please
