May 16, 2013 (Source: The Newswire) — Alabama Graphite Corp. (the “Company”) (CNSX:ALP)  (Frankfurt: 1AG.F  WKN A1J35M) is pleased to report assay results from the remaining core holes from its 2012 drilling program at the Coosa Graphite Project, Alabama.

Drilling on the 200’ by 200’ resource grid at the Coosa Project consisted of 54 core holes.  With the receipt of the current assays, all of the results have been received.  In addition, results from the remaining sonic holes have also been received.  The results from these holes will be reported separately.

The drill core was logged and sampled at the Company’s facility in Sylacauga and shipped to ALS Minerals in Elko, NV, for analysis.  The samples were analyzed for graphitic carbon (Cg) by the LECO method.  Drill holes on the A, B, C and D-lines were among the last processed as an initial visual inspection of the core suggested that their graphite content was low.  In contrast, holes on the northeastern portion of the E-line contained thick intercepts of graphitic schist.  To some extent, this corresponds to a small topographic high.  Graphitic mineralization found along the E-line remains open to the north and east.

Below is a table summarizing the significant results from the new core holes:

Dr. Douglas Oliver, VP Exploration, comments, “With the receipt of the final assay results, the Company has completed one phase of its exploration program and has begun the next.  Our focus has shifted to preparing the database for delivery to Metal Mining Consultants so that they can begin an initial resource estimate.  We are pleased with the drill results and see nothing that should preclude a favorable determination of a resource.  The Company also anticipates planning a follow-up drill program later in 2013 to extend the known mineralization.”
