The 17 elements that are classified as "rare earth" have become a more vital part of our day-to-day lives. Rare earth metals are the life blood of modern personal computers, batteries and alternative energies. To illustrate, there are nearly ten lbs of the rare earth element, lanthanum, in just about every Toyota Prius engine. Furthermore, rare earth elements are vital to military technologies. As opposed to the name, rare earth metals are not particularly uncommon and can be found in most continents. In recent weeks the US government has made significant steps to increase production of these metals, since they will have a large part in President Obama's overhaul of US energy.
Rare earth elements have become irreplaceable in clean tech such as hybrid and electric car motors, high-efficiency light bulbs, solar panels and wind turbines. They also play a key role in defense technologies such as cruise missiles, radar and sonar and precision-guided weapons.
Experts warn that the U.S. depends upon China for almost its entire supply of rare earths, and has let its own rare earth production languish despite having about 15 percent of the world's reserves. A draft of a Chinese rare earths plan for 2009-2015 states that China's own industrial demand could soon lead to restrictions or bans on the export of rare earths.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has noted that 91 percent of U.S. consumption of rare earths came from China between 2005 and 2008.
Constraints on Chinese exports are creating opportunities for non-Chinese projects.
AVOT recently reported that it is presently in final discussions to enter into a formal agreement to acquire an exclusive option on a molybdenum property in the Otter lake area in the province of Quebec, Canada. The property has been dormant since the 1960's when Hupon Mining and Exploration carried out surface work, stripping, trenching and a minor drill program of 445 feet contained in 11 drill holes. Some of the sample results from the trenching in 1962 showed 0.94% to 25% molybdenum averaging 5-10%. These values were obtained from assessment files in the Department of Mines in Quebec City.
This property is only one of several advanced stage properties AVOT has under consideration in the province of Quebec.
AVOT will aggressively continue to search world wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.

Gold's Usefulness as an Asset Diversifier:
Most portfolios are invested primarily in traditional financial assets such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Adding gold to a portfolio introduces an entirely different asset; a tangible or real asset, thus increasing the portfolio's degree of diversification. The purpose of diversification is to protect the total portfolio against fluctuations in the value of any one asset or type of asset. Gold does exactly that.
ORFG has several Gold development properties in Colombia, a current hot spot of gold production in the world markets.
Colombia is recognized as one of the most prospective, yet under-explored countries in the world, and provides an attractive blend of gold, copper and silver deposit discovery potential within a pro-mining business atmosphere.
