Alabama Graphite Corp. Completes 6,000m Drill Program at its Coosa Graphite Project, Alabama

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2012) - Alabama Graphite Corp. (the "Company") (CNSX:ALP)(FRANKFURT:1AG) (ISIN# CA0102931080) (WKN A1J35M) is pleased to report that it has completed the drill program at its Coosa Graphite Project, Alabama.

Major Drilling completed a total of 66 core holes since operations commenced on September 26th. Twelve of these were in two fences designed to gain an understanding of the local stratigraphy. The remainder of the holes were in drilled at a 61m by 61m spacing in a grid intended to define a resource. In addition, 45 of the holes were pre-collared with a sonic drill in order to improve recoveries through the weathered potion of the holes. At the height of the program Major Drilling had four drills operating at the Coosa Project.

To date, results from nine of the stratigraphic holes have been received. The holes were logged and sampled at the Company's facility in Sylacauga and shipped to ALS Minerals in Elko, Nevada. The samples were analyzed for graphitic carbon (Cg) by the LECO method. The remaining three stratigraphic holes and 21 of the grid holes have been processed and are awaiting analysis. The final 33 grid holes will be processed in January with complete assay results expected by the end of February.

CEO, Daniel Spine comments, "I congratulate both our exploration team and Major Drilling for putting together and completing this drill program in record time. Considering that the Coosa Graphite Project was acquired less than five months ago, we consider our progress as nothing short of amazing. While these drill results are an essential first step, our next hurdle is to process the samples and establish a resource that we can report. We intend to pursue this with the same determination that has gotten us this far, this quickly."
