American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (Pink Sheets:AVOT) is pleased to announce that it is presently in final discussions to enter into a formal agreement to acquire an exclusive option on a molybdenum property in the Otter lake area in the province of Quebec, Canada.

The property has been dormant since the 1960's when Hupon Mining and Exploration carried out surface work, stripping, trenching and a minor drill program of 445 feet contained in 11 drill holes. Some of the sample results from the trenching in 1962 showed 0.94% to 25% molybdenum averaging 5-10%. These values were obtained from assessment files in the Department of Mines in Quebec City.

This property is only one of several advanced stage properties American Video has under consideration in the province of Quebec.

Rare earths are necessary components of future energy technologies and important to greenhouse gas abatement strategies. They also have been called the vitamins of the electronics industry. They are the essential ingredients for making products smaller, faster and smarter and their demand is increasing as our desire for technological advancement continues. In fact, demand for rare earths currently outstrips supply, particularly from major product manufacturers in Japan and the USA.

China controls about 97 percent of global rare earth production, but it wants to cut exports for environmental reasons. New mining projects in the United States, Canada and Australia will take several years to reach production.

Constraints on Chinese exports are creating opportunities for non-Chinese projects

American Video will aggressively continue to search world-wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.
