Graphite Corp. Reviews Historical Report Identifying 200,000 Ton Probable Reserve at Crystal Property in Montana

Graphite Corp. Reviews Historical Report Identifying 200,000 Ton Probable 
Reserve at Crystal Property in Montana 
ELKO, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 --   Graphite Corp. (OTCQB:
GRPH) ("Graphite Corp." or the "Company"), an exploration stage
company focused on the evaluation, acquisition and development of
domestic graphite mining opportunities, wishes to advise on the
results of a recent site visit to its claim block which comprises a
total of approximately 1,700 acres situated in Beaverhead County,
Company Director and professional geologist Jason Babcock recently
examined both the leasehold and related historic documentation. He
has submitted a report that details considerable historic data from
the Crystal Graphite and Birds Nest Mines, both located on Company
Excerpts from Mr. Babcock's report include the following statement: 
"In Perry's 1948 edition for the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology,
Memoir No. 27, 'Talc, Graphite, Vermiculite and Asbestos deposits of
Montana,' he proposed that there was a probable reserve of 100,000 to
200,000 tons of graphite ore at a grade of 5 to 8 percent graphite.
He allows that there has been inadequate delineation of the
graphite-bearing ground and more work would be needed. Given the
possible strike length of graphite bearing rock of 4,200 feet, from
the Birds Nest Claim to the Crystal Graphite mine, and possibly
longer, extending beyond these deposits along strike, there may be
potential to greatly expand the graphite resource on the property." 
Mr. Babcock's report further states: 
The first shipment of graphite from the project area was made in
1902. The mines continued to produce graphite sporadically through
the mid 1940s. Most of the graphite was produced during World War I
and the eventual shut down of the mines probably coincides with the
end of World War II. Although there are no detailed records
describing the production of graphite from the property most sources
give a total production of between 2,200 and 2,400 tons. 
The graphite was mainly mined from irregular vein-like bodies which
occur in gneiss and pegmatites in the pre-Cambrian Cherry Creek
metamorphic complex. Graphite also occurs to lesser extent as
irregular disseminated small masses in the pegmatite and dis
in the gneiss (Perry, 1948). 
First reported production on the property comes from the Birds Nest
Claim. In 1902, 50 tons of graphite concentrate was mined and
shipped. The mining on the Birds Nest Claim consisted of 3 adits with
a few stopes along the graphite veins. The deepest adit is
approximately 270 feet long. The Birds Nest Mine is located 4,200
feet North-East of the Crystal Graphite Mine. 
The bulk of the graphite produced came from the Crystal Graphite
Mine. This mine consists of approximately 3,500 feet of workings on 3
levels ranging over 350 vertical feet. High quality lump graphite was
produced mainly from stoping on the upper levels. It was indicated
that 2,200 tons of graphite were produced from these workings between
1902 and 1920. In 1944, a 1,050 foot adit was driven 200 feet below
the previous workings and a flotation mill was used to recover 150
tons of concentrate. The flotation mill was intended to recover fine
graphite from run of mine rock and from older mine dumps (Geach,
1972). Shortly after the mill was brought on-line the project became
Company President Brian Goss states, "The information gleaned during
Mr. Babcock's visit is invaluable to us. It clearly shows the
location is a viable target that requires additional investigation,
which could lead to a comprehensive development program. During his
visit, he further undertook to develop preliminary mapping data,
identified all major landscape and terrain features and made several
grab samples from a variety of locations across the claim block. We
are further pleased to report that he ascertained that road access to
the site is good and is confident that continued exploration is both
economically feasible and desirable."
