Graphite Corp. Assay Reports Higher Than Anticipated Mineral Grades at Alabama Property


Graphite Corp. Assay Reports Higher Than Anticipated Mineral Grades at Alabama Property

Company Reports Grades Showing Over 4% Graphite Mineralization From Key Assay Results

ELKO, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/13 -- 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, is very pleased to announce the results of sampling from a recent field study on its Alabama property.

The study of graphite-bearing mineralization was undertaken at the 3,759.6 acre Carr and Cahaba leases located in Clay County, Alabama.

The 38 Alabama samples returned higher than anticipated grades in comparison with prior observations including historic reports from the U.S., Bureau of Mines which trended to an average of 2% mineralization. The majority of samples were taken in strongly weathered rocks that are very soft and offer simplified production scenarios due to ease of extraction. The samples were taken from several localities throughout the property and the presence of grades showing over 4% and in once instance, higher than 7% crystalline flake graphite offers increasingly promising economics for scalable production.

The geological work was led by Company Director Jason Babcock. The assay work was conducted by INSPECTORATE (A Bureau Veritas Group Company) of Sparks, Nevada. The study included an in-depth physical review of the mineral lease with increasingly focussed attention on specific features of interest.

Company President Brian Goss states, "The consistent presence of mineral grades well above our previous estimates of 2% is very encouraging. These higher percentages clearly indicate that the potential of the leasehold is commercially viable. We are looking forward to moving ahead with a drill program in order to explore the mineralization at depth. With that next step, we can accurately determine the overall resource valuation which is the key to our growth and shareholder interests."
