Abstract:

American Graphite Technologies Inc. Issues Corporate Update on Projects and Financing

Las Vegas, NV | Posted on June 24th, 2013

The Company is pleased to announce the completion of a recent funding totaling $145,000 of which $50,000 was a draw down under our financing agreement and $95,000 was by way of a units private placement offering.

The Company is also currently negotiating another round of equity financing and hopes to have terms agreed to shortly.

The Company has been informed that its 3-D printing project ("P600") should be finalized for all regulatory approvals in the next short while and expects to start the project shortly. P600 is a project funded by AGIN and administered by the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology in Kharkiv, Ukraine. The project will look at the possibility of using graphene as a source for 3-D printing. The 3-d printing market is expected to rapidly expand to 5.2 billion by 2020 (www.forbes.com/sites/tjmccue/2012/03/27/3d-printing-industry-will-reach-3-1-billion-worldwide-by-2016/).

The Company expects to complete some early exploration work to define drill targets on its 100% owned mineral property, in a known graphite area of Quebec, Canada. The Company hopes to undertake the work this fall subject to funding.

The Company's licensing partner, CTI Nanotechnologies LLC ("CTI") is progressing with its graphene/bucky paper ("paper") project and hopes to have information out shortly with respect to some recent tests completed on its paper. CTI is also working to get its production line setup and preliminary testing completed in the next 2-3 months.

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 where the Company's ticker symbol is AGIN and on the Berlin Stock Exchange under the following symbol: A8G (WKN:A1KBDQ/ISIN:US02640K1079). By concentrating on securing graphite mining opportunities and the commercialization of graphene specific proprietary technology methods, management is seeking to bring profitable 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.

About the American Graphite Technologies Inc. and CTI Technologies LLC Agreement

On January 25th, 2013, the Company announced it has entered into a licensing agreement with a private US company CTI Nanotechnologies LLC ("CTI") to further the development and commercialization of Graphene Paper. American Graphite has provided its initial funding as laid out in the agreement with CTI and will provide updates as they occur. CTI is working on the development and commercialization of Graphene/Bucky Paper. The initial funding received by CTI from the Company will be used to acquire test and manufacturing equipment to enhance CTI's existing facility located in Vermont with the goal of developing a prototype production machine that makes Graphene Paper in larger and more affordable sizes than currently available.
