LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- USA GRAPHITE INC. (OTCQB: USGT) or ("the Company") is pleased to announce it has acquired a 100% stake in the Blue Wing Mountain Graphite property, a strategic Project located in Pershing County, Nevada. The property consists of 96 lode claims covering an area of approximately 1985 acres. Road access to the project is excellent and is situated directly between I-80 East and US-395 North.
The financial terms of the transaction consist of approximately $3,000,000 in cash and stock and a $1,000,000 work program commitment. As well, to pay a production Net Smelter Royalty (the "NSR") to NV Minerals equal to two percent (2%) of the net smelter returns, per the terms and conditions of the Option Agreement. The Company shall have a one-time right to purchase fifty percent (50%) of the NSR in the Property for five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000).
Initial prospecting and geological analysis on the claims confirmed the presence of flake graphite at surface. The dominant rock type on the property is hornfels, which are dark grey to black in color with pockets of flaked graphite throughout the known outcrops. Extensive sections of the Blue Wing Mountains Graphite Project contain abundant chiastolite (andalusite) crystals in a matrix of graphite-rich, pelitic pyroxene-hornfels.
Two different hornfels units have been mapped based on the amount of the chiastolite content. These two units comprise 90% of the Blue Wing Mountains and both units are rich in high carbon content flake graphite. The chiastolite at the Blue Wing Mountains Graphite Project occurs in a black, graphite-rich politic pyroxene-hornfels. The presence of carbon in the chiastolite and the high graphite content of the hornfels suggest that the Blue Wing Mountains were formed by a granite intrusion into an oil-rich shale.
Pershing County is well known for its mineralogical potential with mines such as the Florida Canyon Mine, Colado Mine and Empire mine, all located within the region.
Mr. Wayne Y. Yamamoto, President and CEO of USA Graphite, said, "We are pleased with our initial acquisition in the graphite space. Our geological efforts to date are very encouraging and confirm the presence of flake graphite on our property. The size of the property and the quality of graphite on the property lead us to believe that the Blue Wing Graphite property could host a multi-million ton graphite mine."
- Graphite is used in refractories -- used to line high-temperature equipment; pencils; lithium-ion batteries -- used in consumer electronics and electric vehicles, including the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S and others; fuel cells; and Pebble Bed nuclear reactors. It is used in foundries, lubricants and brake linings.
- Graphite is also used to produce graphene, a tightly packed single layer of carbon atoms that can be used to make inexpensive solar panels, powerful transistors, and even a wafer-thin tablet that could be the next-generation iPad* or iPod*.
- Graphene, extremely light and strong, has been called the world's next wonder material.
- The closure of graphite mines in China, which produces 75% of the world's graphite, has resulted in a fall in global graphite production to 1.3 million tonnes per annum in 2011. Like rare earths, China is restricting the export of graphite to protect its own domestic industries. The second largest producer is India, followed by Brazil, North Korea, Austria and Canada.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
