Tue, Oct 1, 2013 6:05 AM EDT LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Oct 1, 2013) – USA Graphite Inc. ( OTCQB : USGT ) (“USA Graphite”), a publicly traded U.S. exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of graphite properties in North America, is pleased to announce that it will immediately launch an initial exploration program for its current portfolio of graphite properties in Nevada. The program is expected to include detailed surface mapping, historic data compilation, and planning prior to a comprehensive exploration and drill program on one or more initial targets. “USA Graphite has assembled an excellent portfolio of graphite exploration properties right here in the United States where, if successfully developed, they could help build a more reliable supply of this essential commodity for our own domestic market,” stated Wayne Yamamoto, President and CEO of USA Graphite. “I look forward to building corporate momentum as we ramp up exploration activities at our Nevada properties and also hope to add new critical personnel on the ground and in the office to help lead our strategic planning and exploration teams in the near future.” Global demand for large flake graphite has been rising for use in many new technology applications, such as lithium-ion and vanadium batteries, fuel cells, semiconductors, transistors, graphene, touch screens, photovoltaic (PV) cells, spintronics, superconductivity, sensors, DNA sequencing, nuclear power generation, and wind power. Lithium-ion batteries, widely used in electronics like cell phones, power tools and notebook computers contain almost twenty times (20x) more graphite than lithium. According to a 2012 research report from investment banker Canaccord Genuity, “Annual flake graphite production will have to increase by a factor of six by 2020 to meet incremental lithium carbonate requirements for batteries.” China and India account for the majority of the world’s graphite supply with China accounting for 70-80%. Most of China’s current graphite production is considered lower grade small flake. China is a net importer of large flake graphite and has imposed strict export restrictions and quotas to retain its own graphite resources. Natural graphite is not currently mined in the United States in commercial quantities.

Look out for his play this weekend to see how much that top form hangs around. Bill Haas This is one name that will intrigue some people, but it shouldn’tHaas tied the PGA Tour lead this season with nine top-10 finishes. Haas didn’t do well in his first appearance in the Presidents Cup (1-3-1), but his game is night-and-day compared to a few years back. The 2013 Haas is a much more complete and consistent player. Hunter Mahan Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Here’s a guy who is no stranger to the spotlight, having made it to the top twosome in the final rounds of both the British Open and U.S. Open this season.
