 American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (OTCPK:AVOT)

Rare-earth minerals consist of terbium, which is used in flat-panel TVs 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.

AVOT recently announced that it has hired a French speaking geologist to search the archives of the Quebec Department of Mines for Rare Earths showings not on a current computer file. AVOT believes the rare earths industry is where it wants to maintain a very strong focus and is looking to expand its holdings. As neither the Federal nor Quebec Governments have carried out any air borne surveys in this area, AVOT will seek a contractor to do an air borne Mag-EM radiometric survey. This survey will cover its present holdings and the immediate surrounding area looking for future acquisitions. We are pleased to be working in the Province of Quebec as it is rated the number one jurisdiction in the world to carry out mineral exploration. The Quebec Government gives a rebate up to 45% for property expenditures.
