VANCOUVER, Canada / ACCESSWIRE / March 3, 2014 / Alabama Graphite Corp. (the "Company") (CSE: ALP) (OTC: ABGPF) (FRANKFURT: 1AG WKN: A1J35M) (ISIN# CA0102931080) is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from samples taken at its Coosa Graphite Project in Alabama. This sampling program is part of an ongoing effort to determine the extent and quality of graphite mineralization across the project area.

Graphite mineralization occurs in a northeast-trending belt across the Piedmont of eastern Alabama. This belt of graphitic schists provided the majority of domestically produced graphite in the United States prior to the end of World War II. The Company has embarked on a sample collection program using the broad network of logging roads. Because the roads are often cut down to bedrock, this allows for hand-trenching across the width of mineralization. The samples were shipped to ActLabs of Ancaster, Ontario, and assayed using their C-Graphitic (Infrared) technique.

A table of significant results and their true and apparent widths are given below:

"Our recent effort has focused on finding higher-grade zones within our project area," said Dr. Douglas Oliver, Vice President of Exploration. "These results indicate that significant graphite mineralization extends beyond the area where we have previously established a resource. We look forward to integrating these assay results with the scheduled airborne geophysical survey to guide future exploration and metallurgical testing."

"The average grade of our inaugural NI 43-101 indicated resource was 2.60%," said Ron S. Roda, President of the Company. "These surface sample results are encouraging as they indicate the potential to enhance the overall grade of our resource."

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 is located in an area with significant historical production of crystalline flake graphite. The Company published a maiden resource estimate in a NI 43-101 Technical Report in September of 2013. With the recent closing of CDN$2,100,000 in financing, the Company is focused on continuing to define the footprint of the Coosa Graphite Project and to start airborne geophysics on the 100% owned Hearst Graphite Property in Ontario.

Often, but not always, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "planning", "planned", "expects" or "looking forward", "does not expect", "continues", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "potential", "anticipates", "does not anticipate" or "belief" or describes a "goal" or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks, future events, conditions, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, prediction, projection, forecast, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking information. Such factors include, among others, the interpretation and actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of graphite; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company's publicly filed documents. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
