USA Graphite to Commence Exploration at Nevada Graphite Properties

USA Graphite to Commence Exploration at Nevada Graphite Properties 
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 10/01/13 --  USA Graphite Inc.
(OTCQB: USGT) ("USA Graphite"), a publicly traded U.S. exploration
company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of
graphite properties in North America, is pleased to announce that it
will immediately launch an initial exploration program for its
current portfolio of graphite properties in Nevada. The program is
expected to include detailed surface mapping, historic data
compilation, and planning prior to a comprehensive exploration and
drill program on one or more initial targets. 
"USA Graphite has assembled an excellent portfolio of graphite
exploration properties right here in the United States where, if
successfully developed, they could help build a more reliable supply
of this essential commodity for our own domestic market," stated
Wayne Yamamoto, President and CEO of USA Graphite. "I look forward to
building corporate momentum as we ramp up exploration activities at
our Nevada properties and also hope to add new critical personnel on
the ground and in the office to help lead our strategic planning and
exploration teams in the near future." 
Global demand for large flake graphite has been rising for use in
many new technology applications, such as lithium-ion and vanadium
batteries, fuel cells, semiconductors, transistors, graphene, touch
screens, photovoltaic (PV) cells, spintronics, superconductivity,
sensors, DNA sequencing, nuclear power generation, and wind power.
Lithium-ion batteries, widely used in electronics like cell phones,
power tools and notebook computers contain almost twenty times (20x)
more graphite than lithium. According to a 2012 research report from
investment banker Canaccord Genuity, "Annual flake graphite
production will have to increase by a factor of six by 2020 to meet
incremental lithium carbonate requirements for batteries." 
China and India account for the majority of the world's graphite
supply with China accounting for 70-80%. Most of China's current
graphite production is considered lower grade small flake. China is a
net importer of large flake graphite and has imposed strict export
restrictions and quotas to retain its own graphite resources. Natural
graphite is not currently mined in the United States in commercial
quantities.
