Gold's Usefulness as an Asset Diversifier:
Most portfolios are invested primarily in traditional financial assets such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Adding gold to a portfolio introduces an entirely different asset; a tangible or real asset, thus increasing the portfolio's degree of diversification. The purpose of diversification is to protect the total portfolio against fluctuations in the value of any one asset or type of asset. Gold does exactly that.
Gold has been widely used throughout the world as a vehicle for monetary exchange, either by issuance and recognition of gold coins or other bare metal quantities, or through gold-convertible paper instruments by establishing gold standards in which the total value of issued money is represented in a store of gold reserves.
Because of the softness of pure (24k) gold, it is usually alloyed with base metals for use in jewelry, altering its hardness and ductility, melting point, color and other properties. Alloys with lower caratage, typically 22k, 18k, 14k or 10k, contain higher percentages of copper, or other base metals or silver or palladium in the alloy.
Orofino Gold Corp. is an International gold company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of gold properties in Mexico and Colombia. ORFG has reviewed several bulk minable properties and has signed an option to acquire properties in the Sur de Bolivar Department of Colombia South America.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (OTCPK:AVOT)
Rare earths-minerals, metals and their oxides has been a looming problem for many years, but now evolved into a political football recently when China reduced its export allocations over the second half.
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.
Japan, one of many nations hardest hit by the reduction of rare earth supplies, has fast-tracked efforts both to reuse rare earths from thrown away or discarded electronics, and also to develop alternatives of the materials to be used in electric engines and the nickel-metal-hydride batteries used in hybrid vehicles.
Constraints on Chinese exports are generating options for non-Chinese projects.
