 American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (OTCPK:AVOT)

Rare-earth metals include terbium, which finds use in flat-panel TVs and high-efficiency fluorescent lamps, and neodymium, key to the permanent magnets in high-efficiency electric motors. Rare-earth metals are not indeed rare. The series of nonferrous metals is common in the environment. According to Design Chain Associates, most rare-earth metals are as common as copper, and even the rarest is more common than gold. Part of the market pressure on rare-earth metals comes from new demands that green technologies has prompted. The market, including electric- and hybrid-vehicle motors and wind turbines, requires magnets.

The 17 elements that are classified as "rare earth" are becoming an increasingly important part of our daily lives. Rare earth metals are the life blood of modern computers, batteries and alternative energies. For example, there are nearly ten pounds of the rare earth element, lanthanum, in every Toyota Prius engine. In addition, rare earth elements are vital to military technology. Contrary to the name, rare earth metals aren't particularly rare and can be found in most any continent. In recent weeks the US government has made important steps to increase production of these metals, as they will play an important part in President Obama's overhaul of U.S. energy.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. recently annouced that Wayne Lockhart, BSc. Geology, has joined the company as special geological advisor to AVOT for advancing the company's exploration programs on its newly acquired rare earth property in Quebec.

AVOT is looking forward to this new relationship with Mr. Lockhart as he will be able to provide the guidance, expertise and leadership that will be needed moving forward, as he has had many years experience working in the province of Quebec.
