American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (Pink Sheets:AVOT) is pleased to announce that it has hired a French speaking geologist to search the archives of the Quebec Department of Mines for Rare Earths showings not on a current computer file. The company believes the rare earths industry is where it wants to maintain a very strong focus and is looking to expand its holdings. As neither the Federal nor Quebec Governments have carried out any air borne surveys in this area, the company will seek a contractor to do an air borne Mag-EM radiometric survey. This survey will cover its present holdings and the immediate surrounding area looking for future acquisitions. We are pleased to be working in the Province of Quebec as it is rated the number one jurisdiction in the world to carry out mineral exploration. The Quebec Government gives a rebate up to 45% for property expenditures.
Rare earth elements have become irreplaceable in clean tech, for instance in hybrid and electric vehicle motors, high-efficiency lamps, solar panels and wind turbines. They even play a key role in defense technologies which include cruise missiles, radar and sonar and precision-guided weapons.
Experts warn that the U.S. depends upon China for almost all of its supply of rare earths, and has let its own rare earth production languish despite possessing about 15 % of the world’s reserves. A draft of a Chinese rare earths plan for 2009-2015 expresses that China’s own industrial requirement 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 originated in China between 2005 and 2008.
Constraints on Chinese exports are creating opportunities for non-Chinese projects
Presently the company is in the final stage of negotiations with Kondor Gold Pyt. in Australia.
American Video Teleconferencing will aggressively continue to search world-wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.
