 American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (OTCPK:AVOT)

Rare-earth minerals consist of terbium, which is used in flat-panel TV's and high-efficiency fluorescent lamps; and neodymium, key to the permanent magnets in high-efficiency electric motors. Rare-earth materials are not all that unusual. The series of nonferrous metals frequently occurs in the environment. According to Design Chain Associates, the majority of rare-earth materials are as common as copper, and even the rarest, is more common than gold.

Part of the market pressure on rare-earth minerals arises from new demand that green technologies has prompted. Industry, including electric- and hybrid-vehicle motors and wind turbines, requires magnets.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. announced recently that it has signed an option agreement to acquire two claim blocks in townships of Mekinac and Lajuene, Province of Quebec. These claim blocks are approximately 3600 acres in total and are located 120 miles east of Montreal P.Q. and 50 miles north of Three Rivers P.Q. They are accessible year round with infrastructure in the immediate vicinity. The claims adjoin a property that had one of the highest readings of Rare Earths in North America. Sampling in the 1950s gave readings of 48% combined Cerium, Lanthanum, Neoymium and Yttrium. That property has remained dormant for over 50 years but the new owners plan an extensive exploration program this fall. AVOT, after a lengthy search and after careful due diligence, believes this is going to be one of the most active areas for Rare Earths exploration and our holdings are in the same geological setting as the 48% Rare Earths showing. Rare Earths are in huge demand especially in the United States as China is closing off its exports of these strategic metals to less than 5% of its production. AVOT will aggressively continue to search world wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.
