Alabama Graphite Corp. (CSPGF: OTCQB) | Alabama Graphite Provides Corporate Update

Oct 16, 2017

OTC Disclosure & News Service

The Energy Graphite™ Company 
Sourced and Manufactured in the United States of America

TORONTO, Oct. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alabama Graphite Corp. (“Alabama Graphite” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:CSPG) (OTCQB:CSPGF) is pleased to provide the following update on its continuing corporate and operational progress. AGC is the sole owner of the Coosa Graphite Project, located in east-central Alabama, USA. The Company’s mission is to become a vertically integrated green-energy supply chain producer of battery-ready graphite products for the American lithium-ion, lead-acid and alkaline battery industries.

A photo accompanying this announcement is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/6995b2d5-1f89-421e-b2ca-89ab6dd618f3

On November 30, 2015, AGC announced its positive Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) — addressing both primary and secondary processing to produce specialty, ultra-high-purity, battery-ready graphite products, as opposed to sole primary processing to make traditional graphite concentrate — for its Coosa Graphite Project the most advanced flake graphite project in the contiguous United States. Since December 2015 when President and Chief Executive Officer Donald Baxter was appointed to such position by the Board of AGC, the Company has achieved several significant milestones, including but not limited to the following:

Note: A PEA is preliminary in nature. A PEA includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Inferred Mineral Resources represent material that is considered too speculative to be included in economic evaluations. Additional trenching and/or drilling will be required to convert Inferred Mineral Resources to Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no guarantee that all or any part of the Mineral Resource will be converted into a Mineral Reserve.

OFFTAKE/SUPPLY AGREEMENT NEGOTIATIONS

The Company is in discussions with numerous potential battery and automotive clients. Of those discussions, AGC is currently engaged in advanced discussions with three potential end users for significant offtake/supply agreements. The identities of the specific potential end users are being withheld for reasons of commercial confidentiality. Discussions are progressing well. Details will be released as permitted, if and when a material agreement has been executed.

150-KILOGRAM STOCKPILE OF BATTERY-READY GRAPHITE PRODUCTS

Further to AGC’s May 1, 2017 announcement, Alabama Graphite Corp. Commences Production of greater than 150 Kilogram Stockpile of Sourced-and-Manufactured-in-USA Specialty Battery-Ready Graphite for End User Qualification, the Company is pleased to report that it has successfully completed prototype production from this more than 150-kilogram stockpile, under CEO Donald Baxter’s direction and supervision. To the Company’s knowledge, no other graphite development company has produced more battery-ready graphite.

Independent characterization to analyze and electrochemically test the CSPG stockpiles in representative samples to validate the high electrochemical performance of the CSPG and, as importantly, consistency in electrochemical performance is currently underway and results will be disclosed as soon as they are available.

Additionally, the Company is conducting long-term cycling efficiency testing, to more than 500 cycles, and has recently completed more than 200 cycles to date. Again, details on these results will be disseminated as soon as they are available. The building of the CR2016 cells to test the CSPG and subsequent cycling efficiency testing takes several months to complete and long-term cycling test results will be ongoing.

FEASIBILITY STUDY

On July 12, 2017, AGC announced that it had awarded the contract for the Feasibility Study for the Coosa Graphite Project to AGP Mining Consultants Inc. (“AGP”), the same independent engineering firm that produced the Company’s PEA. Per AGC’s May 1, 2017 announcement, the Feasibility Study had been strategically deferred in order to focus on the Company’s downstream prototype production, characterization and testing of its greater than 150-kilogram stockpile of sourced-and-manufactured-in-USA battery-ready graphite products for potential end users. As the Feasibility Study is expected to take no more than ten months (maximum) to complete from its commencement, coupled with the fact that Alabama-state permitting — expected to take no more than six months to complete — can be commenced concurrently, the need to produce a significant amount of battery-ready graphite materials was far more important to the Company than starting the Feasibility Study.

More recently, and after discussions with American manufacturers in the lead-acid battery industry in particular, AGC has decided to reassess production quantity targets for the Feasibility Study. In particular, the production tonnages in the PEA, specifically, as it pertains to Purified Micronized Graphite (“PMG”) and its derivative Delaminated Expanded Graphite (“DEXDG”) conductivity enhancement products for battery cathodes, need to be reevaluated, as the original PEA production quantities are now deemed to be insufficient to address current market demand. AGC intends to commence the Feasibility Study before the end of 2017, contingent on securing the required financing.

There is no deadline or expiry date for when the Company’s Feasibility Study must be completed. The Feasibility Study is an important milestone, but by no means a critically time-sensitive one. There appears to be a misconception that the Feasibility Study must be commenced immediately. Several graphite development companies have completed/filed their Feasibility Studies years ago (and in one instance, more than five years ago) — and all have yet to secure project financing or, as importantly, any binding offtake/supply agreements. These companies now sit stagnating with outdated Feasibility Study technical reports, with grossly irrelevant economic modeling, and their Feasibility Studies require updating at significant expense. AGC management believes that its focus on battery material development may potentially help AGC avoid this fate. Some retail shareholders fail to recognize or understand the value of the significant downstream, technical, battery-related accomplishments AGC has achieved to date. AGC’s battery-ready graphite technical accomplishments are what potential end-users are interested in. Although end users do want a timeline for when AGC could, pending completion of a positive Feasibility Study, potentially be in production, of CSPG and/or PMG (from AGC’s Coosa Graphite Project or elsewhere) many of these very downstream entities do not know what a mining industry Feasibility Study is and the lack of a completed Feasibility Study does not preclude these companies from potentially doing business with AGC.

Note, the Coosa Graphite Project consists of approximately 42,000 acres and is located on private land. There are no federal permitting issues for the Company to contend with, but rather only Alabama-state-level permitting via the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (“ADEM”). Independent engineering firm Thompson Engineering, of Mobile, Alabama is contracted as AGC’s consultant leading the permitting process for the Coosa Graphite Project with ADEM. As announced on July 24, 2017, AGC received the necessary National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (“NPDES”) Construction Storm Water General Permit ADEM for the potential discharges associated with the exploration activities necessary to complete the pending Feasibility Study.

Washington D.C. Trip

On October 3, 2017, CEO Donald Baxter and EVP Tyler Dinwoodie attended the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources’ ‘Full Committee Hearing to Examine Energy Storage Technologies’. The purpose of the hearing was to examine the status of energy storage technologies, reviewing today’s technologies and understanding innovation in tomorrow’s technologies, noting that China is the dominant world leader producing and exporting the critical, battery-ready input materials to manufacture lithium-ion batteries — namely graphite, cobalt, lithium, and nickel — and that the United States currently imports 100% of the aforementioned. Leading independent lithium-ion supply-chain expert and Managing Director of UK-based Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, Simon Moores, provided testimony. United States Senator Luther Strange of Alabama is a Republican Committee Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.

During the hearing, Committee Chairman, Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), asked Mr. Moores, “Where do we go if we are in a situation where we are reliant on other nations (some 100%) for critical minerals but also for the processing of these minerals? How vulnerable does this make us?” Mr. Moores responded by stating, “I would be very concerned about technologies that are going to be core to the next big industry – namely, energy storage. Because that will fundamentally alter the auto sectors and alter the energy space over the next 100 years. Those core minerals to the battery technology that will be central to that for the next 10 to 15 years is lithium-ion batteries. And that’s because of the cost, because of the scale they are going to be produced over the next 5 years with the rise of these battery megafactories around the world. I would be looking at the four critical raw materials that go into a lithium-ion battery, which are lithium, graphite, cobalt and nickel. Of those 4, the US imports 100% of each. So, no mining of these specialty materials happens in the US.”

ABOUT ALABAMA GRAPHITE CORP.

Alabama Graphite Corp. is a Canadian-based flake graphite exploration and development company as well as an aspiring battery materials production and technology company. The Company operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, Alabama Graphite Company, Inc. (a company registered in the state of Alabama). With an advancing flake graphite project in the United States of America, Alabama Graphite Corp. intends to become a reliable, long-term U.S. supplier of specialty high-purity graphite products. A highly experienced team leads the Company with more than 100 years of combined graphite mining, graphite processing, specialty graphite products and applications, and graphite sales experience. Alabama Graphite Corp. is focused on the exploration and development of its flagship Coosa Graphite Project in Coosa County, Alabama, and its Bama Mine Project in Chilton County, Alabama as well as the research and development of its proprietary manufacturing and technological processing process of battery materials.

Alabama Graphite Corp. holds a 100% interest in the mineral rights for these two U.S.-based graphite projects, which are both located on private land. The two projects encompass more than 43,000 acres and are located in a geopolitically stable, mining-friendly jurisdiction with significant historical production of crystalline flake graphite in the flake graphite belt of central Alabama, also known as the Alabama Graphite Belt (source: U.S. Bureau of Mines). A significant portion of the Alabama deposits are characterized by graphite-bearing material that is oxidized and has been weathered into extremely soft rock. Both projects have infrastructure in place, are within close proximity to major highways, rail, power and water, and are approximately three hours (by truck or train) to the Port of Mobile, the Alabama Port Authority’s deep-seawater port and the ninth largest port by tonnage in the United States (source: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers/USACE). The state of Alabama’s hospitable climate allows for year-round mining operations and the world’s largest marble quarry (which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Sylacauga, Alabama), is located within a 30-minute drive of the Coosa Graphite Project.

On November 30, 2015, Alabama Graphite Corp. announced the results of PEA for the Coosa Graphite Project, indicating a potentially low-cost project with potential positive economics. Please refer to the Company’s technical report titled “Alabama Graphite Corp. Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on the Coosa graphite Project, Alabama, USA” dated November 27, 2015, prepared by independent engineering firms AGP Mining Consultants Inc. and Metal Mining Consultants Inc., and filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Note: a Preliminary Economic Assessment or PEA is preliminary in nature, it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment will be realized.

* Inferred Mineral Resources represent material that is considered too speculative to be included in economic evaluations. Additional trenching and/or drilling will be required to convert Inferred Mineral Resources to Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no guarantee that all or any part of the Mineral Resource will be converted into a Mineral Reserve.

Alabama Graphite Corp. is a proud member of the National Association of Advanced Technology Batteries International (“NAATBatt International”), a U.S.-based, not-for-profit trade association commercializing advanced electrochemical energy-storage technology for emerging, high-tech applications.

AGC’s COMMITMENT TO ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

AGC’s graphite is purified via the Company’s propriety, low-temperature thermal purification process. AGC’s environmentally responsible and sustainable graphite purification process does not utilize caustic chemicals or harsh acids that are commonly regarded as dangerous and environmentally harmful (e.g. hydrofluoric acid, as is commonly used in Chinese graphite production; hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acids, or alkali roasting, caustic-soda roasting, etc.), nor does the process require copious amounts of clean water or costly, energy-intensive high-temperature thermal upgrading. Please refer to the Company’s February 17, 2017 announcement, Alabama Graphite Corp. Achieves 99.99997% Graphite Purity via Proprietary, Environmentally Responsible and Sustainable Purification Process; Exceeds Nuclear Graphite Purity Requirements.’
