Rare earth elements are now irreplaceable in clean tech for use in hybrid and electric car / truck motors, high-efficiency bulbs, solar panels and wind generators. They also play a crutial role in defense technologies such as cruise missiles, radar and sonar and precision-guided weapons.

Experts warn that the U.S. relies on China for almost its entire amount of rare earths, and has let its own rare earth production languish despite possessing about 15 percent of the world's reserves. A draft of a Chinese rare earths plan for 2009-2015 expresses that China's own industrial growing demand could soon cause restrictions or bans on the export of rare earths.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) noted that 91 % of U.S. usage of rare earths came from China between 2005 and 2008.

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