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.

Environmental considerations

Mining, refining, and recycling of rare earths have serious environmental consequences if not properly managed. A particular hazard is mildly radioactive slurry tailings resulting from the common occurrence of thorium and uranium in rare earth element ores.[33] Additionally, toxic acids are required during the refining process.[11] Improper handling of these substances can result in extensive environmental damage. In May 2010, China announced a major, five-month crackdown on illegal mining in order to protect the environment and its resources. This campaign is expected to be concentrated in the South,[34] where mines are commonly small, rural, and illegal operations particularly prone to release toxic wastes into the general water supply.[10][35] However, even the major operation in Baotou, in Inner Mongolia, where much of the world's rare earth supply is refined, has suffered major environmental damage.

China has been one of the main supplier to the US of the Earth's rare mineral supplies, with these rare minerals American manufacturers are able to make high-tech products such as cell phones, wind turbines, and guided missiles, but all that might come to a screeching halt now that China has stopped supplying the material, the New York Times has reported.

In the wake of China's decision America now must look for other sources, that will be more reliable for our future needs, and AVOT may just be the new source, here's why.

AVOT believes the rare earths industry is where it wants to maintain a very strong focus and is looking to expand its holdings. AVOT is currently looking for these Rare Earths Minerals in Canada, the US's Northern neighbor.
