About American Graphite Technologies Inc. American Graphite Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: AGIN); is a mineral exploration and technology development company that is listed on a US Stock Exchange and the Company’s ticker symbol is AGIN. By concentrating on securing graphite mining opportunities and the commercialization of graphene specific proprietary technology methods, management is seeking to bring profit opportunities and maximize shareholder value. Graphene has been described as the “miracle material” of the 21st Century and is believed to be stronger than steel and more conductive than copper while being flexible, making it plausible as a replacement over silicon possibly leading to thinner, faster, cheaper, more flexible devices including power sources. Since graphene comes from the carbon atom it is abundant and cheap. In 2010 the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for groundbreaking experiments regarding graphene. Advances in alternative energy technologies are driving demand for strategic metals like graphite that have recently evolved from industrial demands to include high tech uses as nations focus on encouraging the development of new domestic markets for clean and efficient energy alternatives, smart grid infrastructure and military capabilities.
