September 10, 2013 - Sylacauga, Alabama - Alabama Graphite Corp. (the "Company") (CNSX:ALP) (US OTC: ABGPF) (Frankfurt: 1AG.F WKN A1J35M) is in the process of soliciting bids for airborne geophysical surveys for both its Alabama and Ontario exploration projects.
Exploration at the Coosa Project in Alabama has focused on testing areas where surface sampling has indicated significant quantities of graphitic carbon (Cg). Drilling in the Fall of 2012 produced the resource estimate released late last month. In addition, recent fieldwork has confirmed that additional horizons of graphitic schist are present within mineral leases held by the Company including the Fixico Prospect. At the recently acquired Hearst Prospect in Ontario, surface magnetometer and horizontal loop electromagnetic (HLEM) surveys conducted in the 1980s have indicated promising targets.
While the Company is seeking bids to conduct airborne geophysical surveys over both projects, the two projects have different objectives. At the Coosa Project the goal is to evaluate new graphitic schist horizons using the identified resource for calibration. In addition to the primary graphitic horizon, the geophysical survey will also evaluate the Fixico horizon and a third horizon occurring further to the southeast. At the Hearst Project, the objective is to use more modern technology and closer line spacing to get a more detailed view of the historic geophysical targets. Electromagnetic and magnetometer surveys will be conducted simultaneously at both projects as a means of differentiating graphitic from sulfide mineralization.
Dr. Douglas Oliver, VP Exploration, comments, "We look forward to incorporating the results of these geophysical surveys with our existing knowledge of the two projects. At the Coosa Project our goal has changed from discovering a resource to defining higher-grade zones within our land position. At the Hearst Project we are most interested in further refining targets for upcoming drilling. These surveys will be instrumental in moving both projects forward."
The geophysical surveys are expected to be conducted later this Fall.

About Alabama Graphite:
Alabama Graphite Corp., through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alabama Graphite Company Inc., is a graphite exploration and development company whose flagship project "The Coosa Graphite Project" in Coosa County, Alabama encompasses of over 40,000 acres located in an area with significant historical production of crystalline flake graphite. The Coosa Graphite project is 100% owned by Alabama Graphite and on private land. Last month, following less than one calendar year of exploration, the Company disclosed an initial mineral resource estimate for the Coosa Graphite Project prepared by Metals Mining Consultants. In addition, the Company recently acquired a 100% interest in the Hearst Graphite project in Northern Ontario. This gives the Company projects in two of the most significant graphite mining jurisdictions in the world. For further details go to www.alabamagraphite.co
