American Video Teleconferencing Corp. Signs Option Agreement

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (Pink Sheets:AVOT) “the company”, is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement for three gold bearing claim blocks situated in the northern mining district of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Geared-up mining operations and expanded manufacturing schedules in Africa, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, the US, Vietnam and elsewhere, may well provide supply-chain choices to China, which controls well over 95 % of the world’s rare earths.

The U.S. House of Representatives, fearful the U.S. military could possibly become relying on Chinese-made electronics, approved H.R. 6160, the Rare Earths and Critical Materials Revitalization Act of 2010

Assays taken in 2008 on selected samples returned repeatable high grade gold values of 7gms/ton (.25oz) to 112.9gms/ton (3.99oz/ton).

The project is 1385 hectares in area and covers several documented nickel-copper and gold showings and land in proximity to lake sediment geochemical and biogeochemical anomalies.

Access to the project is currently by float or ski equipped aircraft or by helicopter to Stony Rapids which is accessible by commercial aircraft from the major cities of Saskatoon or Regina in southern Saskatchewan.

The expenditures for the 2010-2011 work program will be paid by the property owners due to an arrangement reached in the option agreement with the issuance of 1.2 million restricted shares (144).
