In March 2015, Alabama Graphite announced that it has found naturally occurring flake graphene at its Coosa Property in Alabama, USA. The company later declared that it has found additional types of naturally occurring graphene-based derivatives, namely few-layer graphene (2-5 layers), multi-layer graphene (2-10 layers), and graphite nanoplates (less than 100 nm thick) at the same property.
