Québec is remarkable from the standpoint of the wealth of its tremendous land area that has scarcely been tapped. It has roughly 30 mines, 158 exploration firms and 15 primary processing industries. Some 30 minerals are mined, of which the leading ones are gold, iron, titanium, asbestos, copper, zinc and silver. Scarcely 40 % of Québec’s mineral potential is now known. In 1999, the value of Québec mineral shipments reached $ 3.6 billion. The mining industry accounts for nearly 18,000 direct jobs and investment reaching $ 1 billion. American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (PINK:AVOT) is pleased to announce that Wayne Lockhart, BSc. Geology, has joined American Video as special geological advisor to AVOT for advancing American Video’s exploration programs on its newly acquired rare earth property in Quebec.
