These two groups are seeking domestic oil and gas production in light of the Middle East tensions.

We anticipate feedback from both of the financing groups before the end of this month,” stated Andrew J. Kacic, President of Proper Power & Energy.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (PINK: AVOT) has hired a French speaking geologist to help search for rare earth claims in the Mekinac Township, province of Quebec, east central Canada. The documentation of the Quebec Department of Mines for Rare Earths is still not available in computers.

Québec is remarkable from the standpoint of the wealth of its tremendous land area that has scarcely been tapped. It has roughly 30 mines, 158 exploration firms and 15 primary processing industries. Some 30 minerals are mined, of which the leading ones are gold, iron, titanium, asbestos, copper, zinc and silver. Scarcely 40 % of Québec's mineral potential is now known.

In 1999, the value of Québec mineral shipments reached $ 3.6 billion. The mining industry accounts for nearly 18,000 direct jobs and investment reaching $ 1 billion. In Québec, more than 90 % of the substratum is made up of Precambrian rock, a geological formation well known for its deposits of gold, iron, copper and nickel. Since the Québec mining industry took off in the 1920's, it has maintained steady growth. The Abitibi-Témiscamingue region experienced the first mining boom. Exploration was subsequently carried out in the Matagami, Chibougamau, Saguenay Lac-Saint-Jean, Grand-Nord and Côte-Nord regions.

AVOT is searching for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.
