Haiti (

In May 2009 it was reported that a Montreal-based mining company had announced plans to explore the mountains of north-eastern Haiti for gold and copper.

"The company is encouraged by explorations that Eurasian Minerals Inc is conducting at a nearby site." (Canadian company to explore for gold in Haiti -

Bloomberg reported recently that the Haiti earthquake may have unlocked natural gas and oil reserves.

F. William Engdahl, at Global Research, on 30 January 2010, wrote about The Fateful Geological Prize Called Haiti

According to Engdahl:

1. Haiti reportedly has vast amounts of oil and gas and this might explain the behaviour of theUnited States, France and Canada towards the Haiti quake.

2. A team of geologists from the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas has mapped the Caribbean Basins.

The sponsors of the project include Chevron, ExxonMobil, Anglo-Dutch Shell and BHP Billiton.

3. In 2008 a consortium of oil companies led by Spain's Repsol, together with Cuba's state oil company, Cubapetroleo, announced the discovery of one of the world's largest oilfields in the water off Cuba.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev flew to Havana to sign an agreement with Raul Castro for Russian oil companies to explore and develop Cuban oil.

The Chinese President signed an agreement to modernize Cuban ports and discussed Chinese purchase of Cuban raw materials.

4. The oil is not going to run out.

More than 50 years ago, a group of Russian and Ukrainian geophysicists confirmed that oil and gas are made deep in the earth's mantle.

They are not the result of dead creatures concentrated and crushed millions of years ago.

5. Then in 2010 Bloomberg News reported:

"The Jan. 12 earthquake was on a fault line that passes near potential gas reserves... The quake may have cracked rock formations along the fault, allowing gas or oil to temporarily seep toward the surface..."

6. Haiti’s minerals include gold, the valuable strategic metal iridium and oil, apparently lots of it.

7. Aristide had a plan to develop Haiti's oil, gold and other resources to benefit all the people and not just the five Haitian oligarchic families and their US backers, the so-called Chimeres or gangsters. Aristide was ousted by the USA in 2004.

8. According to Marguerite Laurent of the Haitian Lawyers' Leadership Network, under the guise of emergency relief work, the US, France and Canada are engaged in a balkanization of the island for future mineral control.

She reports rumours that Canada wants the North of Haiti where Canadian mining interests are already present.

The US wants Port-au-Prince and the island of La Gonaive just offshore - an area identified in Aristide's development book as having vast oil resources, and which is bitterly contested by France.

She further states that China, with UN veto power over the de facto UN-occupied country, may have something to say against such a US-France-Canada carve up of the vast wealth of the nation.
