Is the UN military proxy occupation of Haiti masking US securing oil/gas reserves from Haiti by Ezili Dantò, June 10, 2008 (Last updated June 22, 2008)
Haiti’s oil and gas reserves, which we’ve been given information to believe is located in La Gonave, Ile-à-Vache, Cayes, and that there are gas/oil reserves near Aquin, Haiti. (See, Map of mining resources in Haiti and showing five oil/gas sites in Haiti; Drill, and then pump the oil of Haiti!;Oil in Haiti; Digging up Haiti; Haitian Riches ; Haiti lignite/coal mine in Hinche at Matraco-Colorado Haiti Projects; Hidalgo Mining International; Eurasian Minerals Acquires two Gold Projects in Haiti; Copper Mining in Haiti /KWG Resources Inc. – Haiti: Copper Values from Drilling of the Douvray Porphyry Copper Deposit.)
We have even been given information to suggest that the oil reserves located in Haiti are being tapped into from outside of Haiti, from Guantanamo Bay by the US. And given some indication that the head of the oil reserves that feed Venezuela comes, originates out of Haitian territory. Moreover, knowledgeable Haitians tell there are many sites in Haiti with black stones that when tested are oil deposits. These black stones are often found littering the beaches of La Gonave. These same Haitians tell of US boats drilling and sucking out Haiti’s resources, such as the sulfur of TiTanyen. (Source: Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network members, June 17, 2008.) …Further it has been said that in remote areas of Haiti there are metal plaques engraved, ‘Property of the US government.'” …
Haitian attorney Osner Fèvry has indicated years ago, that will take the next “100 years” to fully exploit. Not much else, other than Haiti’s gold, copper, emerald, coal, marble, granite, iridium, underwater treasures and other mineral riches explains the massive US, UN military presence.

… According to a June 2008 article by Roberson Alphonse in the Haitian paper, Le Nouvelliste en Haiti, some 4 companies want official licenses from the Haitian State to drill for oil. (unnamed) … Possibly among these:
a team of geologists from the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas began an ambitious and thorough two-phase mapping of all geological data of the Caribbean Basins. The project is due to be completed in 2011. Directed by Dr. Paul Mann, it is called “Caribbean Basins, Tectonics and Hydrocarbons.” It is all about determining as precisely as possible the relation between tectonic plates in the Caribbean and the potential for hydrocarbons—oil and gas.
Notably, the sponsors of the multi-million dollar research project under Mann are the world’s largest oil companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, the Anglo-Dutch Shell and BHP Billiton. Curiously enough, the project is the first comprehensive geological mapping of a region …
in nearby waters off Cuba, directly across from Port-au-Prince. In October 2008 a consortium of oil companies led by Spain’s Repsol, together with Cuba’s state oil company, Cubapetroleo, announced discovery of one of the world’s largest oilfields in the deep water off Cuba. It is what oil geologists call a ‘Super-giant’ field. Estimates are that the Cuban field contains as much as 20 billion barrels of oil, making it the twelfth Super-giant oilfield discovered since 1996. …
Haiti, a new Saudi Arabia?
The remarkable geography of Haiti and Cuba and the discovery of world-class oil reserves in the waters off Cuba lend credence to anecdotal accounts of major oil discoveries in several parts of Haitian territory. It also could explain why two Bush Presidents and now special UN Haiti Envoy Bill Clinton have made Haiti such a priority. …
in 2010 the financial news site Bloomberg News carried the following:
The Jan. 12 earthquake was on a fault line that passes near potential gas reserves, said Stephen Pierce, a geologist who worked in the region for 30 years for companies that included the former Mobil Corp. The quake may have cracked rock formations along the fault, allowing gas or oil to temporarily seep toward the surface, he said Monday in a telephone interview. …
The US Embassy in Port-au-Prince was the fifth largest US embassy in the world, comparable to its embassies in such geopolitically strategic places as Berlin and Beijing. With huge new oil finds off Cuba being exploited by Russian companies, with clear indications that Haiti contains similar vast untapped oil as well as gold, copper, uranium and iridium … The fact that in the aftermath of the earthquake, UN Haiti Special Envoy Bill Clinton joined forces with Aristide foe George W. Bush to create something called the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund ought to give everyone pause….
According to Marguerite Laurent (‘Ezili Dantò’) 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 rumors 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
Matraco-Colorado has a mining operation in Haiti. – Not publicly traded, I think.
Hidalgo Mining – looks like it failed. May have been allying with the wrong parties.

Scientists Daniel and Ginette Mathurin indicate that under Haitian soil is rich in oil… “We have identified 20 sites Oil, launches Daniel Mathurin stating that 5 of them are considered very important by practitioners and policies.
The Central Plateau, including the region of Thomond, the plain of the cul-de-sac and the bay of Port-au-Prince are filled with oil, he said, adding that Haiti’s oil reserves are larger than those of Venezuela . An Olympic pool compared to a glass of water that is the comparison to show the importance of oil Haitian compared to those of Venezuela,” he explains. … According to Daniel et Ginette Mathurin, the lake region, with cities like Thomazeau and Cornillon, contains large deposits of oil. … Experts argue that the government acted Jean Claude Duvalier had verified the existence of a major oilfield in the bay of Port-au-Prince shortly before its fall.
Moreover, Daniel et Ginette Mathurin show that uranium 238 and 235 and the deposit zyconium exist in several regions including in Jacmel. Uranium is used in nuclear reactors to produce electrical energy.
