Port-au-Prince.– Eurasian Minerals Inc. announced it has been awarded twenty-seven new exploration licenses in northern Haiti.

This property package, in combination with EMX's previous license awards, gives the Company a commanding land position along 130 kilometers of strike length in an emerging new gold belt.

Included in the new license grant is the historic Meme copper-gold mine. All of the new properties are subject to the Company's Regional Exploration Alliance with Newmont Ventures Ltd.

Eurasian Minerals Inc site
exploration land holdings now total 281,858 hectares, and cover approximately half of the Massif du Nord metallogenic belt in Haiti (please see attached map). This regional scale gold-silver-copper mineralized belt consists of an early Cretaceous island arc assemblage, located along the northern margin of the Caribbean tectonic plate, and hosts EMX's La Miel, La Mine, and Champagne projects, as well as the Pueblo Viejo deposit in the adjacent Dominican Republic. Pueblo Viejo has 215 million tons of proven and probable reserves containing 20.4 million ounces of gold, 117.3 million ounces of silver, and 423.5 million pounds of copper as of year-end 2007 reporting (www.barrick.com).

Proven does not imply easily extractable nor economically extractable! In addition, the amount of spent acid contamination from the stupid extraction process, the leveling of geological features and disruption of the water dispersion and organization indicates that these companies are literally destroying our geology/flora so that they can go a sell that gold for nearly $860/ounce. We must resist the presence of these "land termites" that all they give us is depleted and unconsolidated soil (worthless soil). The extraction of our wealth for worthless paper is the worst mistake Caribbean island are conducting today (selling their soul today for a dismal future). I feel sorry for the future generations in the island!

Whatever money are made will end end up in the coffers of those who will kidnap power and continue to brutalize the people ,exile, jail,exterminate their political enemies so the can stay in power and enrich themselves.

WhySmitty said: Dessalines did the right thing with the French.

If you ask me, I would say that it was completely unnecessary to go genocidal with that handful of colonists left, specially when we consider the fact that Toussaint had already destroyed their political power a decade before independence. The only thing that Dessalines did was to incur the wrath of the european nations and the US, which as you must know have avenged themselves in full with the postrated economic and social situation in which your country finds itself in. That act was almost the same as shooting yourselves in the foot, considering that, as hated as much hated as they were, those colonists were the only ones with the economic know-how that would have enabled the country to rebuilt itself after that dreadful war.

As they say out there, there´s not a second chance for a first impresion. The only thing that you´re doing with that point of view is reinforcing the poor opinion and prejudices that the arkatypes on this island have against you, a group that I must remind you still have a lot of political influence left in them, notwithstanding the disappearances of Trujillo and Balaguer.

WhySmitty, Dessalines also said :" Cultivators can be controlled only by fear of punishment or death.I will lead them by those means" while scourging them with a lianne and a kokomakak.

The watchword from the emperor himself while public funds lined private pockets was"Plimen poul la,men pa kite l rele"(pluck the chicken,but do not make it cry out)

On October 16,1806, Dessalines exclaimed while marching south with two battalions of the 4th Demibrigade "My horse will wade in blood up to his breastplate"
It was not the blood of the French he was talking about, but the blood of Hatians.

In early October 1806 Christophe arrested and executed Capois La Mort.

October 18,1806,Dessalines was assassinated.His ring finger was hacked off to remove a ring .The cut finger was later sold to an American trader as a souvenir.

Willing hands dragged Dessalines faceless cadaver into the city to be stoned and spat on and defiled.All that remained of the emperor laid in the midday sun

I am sorry but the thread was about Eurasain Minerals, although I agree that ex-president Aristide
is very wealthy and living in South Africa like a prince at present. I also heard that he finances certain terrorist groups inside Haiti and he has hopes of returning home some day, but I regard that wish as highly improbable and most unlikely.
To the matter in the thread.
I sure hope for the benefit of Haiti that these explorations turned out to be beneficial for the country,
but due to Haiti's previous history I really doubt it for many reasons, these are some:
1. Rampant corruption in government distribution channels rated as high as 70%.
2. The example of how the general population of their African cousins have not benefitted from their oil, diamonds, gold,
uranium and other minerals that are being mined in that continent.
3. Frequent and unstable changes in Haiti's governments do not offer security guarantees for the continued and safe exploration of those ore deposits.

anthonioj,

The folks from Laboule, Kenskoff that you are talking about were the ones who conspired with Bush, the Haitian macoutes, the Haitian drug dealers, and some Haitian murderers to overturn the will of the majority of the Haitian people by kidnapping and exiling the democratically and constitutionally elected president of Haiti "Le Grand" "Le Hero" Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

As far as "pere Lebrun", Aristide never used that language as a mean to kill people. He used "Pere Lebrun" as a figure of speech in a poetic manner as he always does. Aristide is a peaceful person. That's why Aridtide is still supported by the all the wealthy peaceful superstars/Activists of Hollywood. Hollywood continues to fund everything that aristide undertakes including his return to Haiti in March 2009.

Read the article below and you'll see the truth and nothing but the truth about Aristide and Haiti.

Aristide speaks 11 languages. Aristide is a super genius. Bush doesn't want Aristide to live anywhere near the Western Hemisphere because Bush knows Aristide's ideas are so positively influential and powerful.

Lautaro,

Dominicans and Haitians have gotten along in the United States very well. I go to Dominican parties and they also come to ours. They intermarry each other. Toussaint and Dessalines rescued the whole island from slavery. The Haitians had to stop the insanity that had gone on in the island for centuries. The brave, dedicated and intrepid Haitian Generals did the job. We had to rid the island of the heartless, cruel inhuman Spanish, French and English murderers and rapists. In addition to defeating the French, we paid them also so they will stay away from the island of Hispaniola completely. Despite all that I said in the my past posts in this room, Haitians and Domincans will continue to forge a way so they can continue to co-habit. They are destined to live side by side. Goverments from both side should work together to promote harmony.

Today,don't you see how even Americans and Japanese have found a way to maintain cordial relations.

When will you understand that the reality on the US and the one on the island are two entirely different things? Dude, you really need to stop drinking clairin, because for starters, haitians and dominicans in the US belong to the same socioeconomic group, that is, the one of the economic inmigrants to a developed superpower, which is very different from the reality seen on the island, where haitians are fleeing en masse from Haiti to the DR, pushing the already scant resources of the DR to their limits, a situation all the more dire for the fact that the DR have already a sizable population below the poverty line. Your comparison between our case and the relationship between the US and Japan could not be more misplaced, cuz´in the latter case, you´re talking about two equally developed countries, whereas in the former you´re talking about two undeveloped countries competing for the few resources left on an enviromentally ravaged island.

Your analysis makes me believe now that you are an alien not even from the moon, but from probably jupiter. When you are presented with the facts, you become even more disillusioned. Reasoning with someone like you, is like trying to rationalize with a donkey. Stay in your somber corner with your egocentric and self-centered view until you self-destruct. You are a miserable soul. I pitty you.

For the record, Aristide will return to Haiti in March 2009 the latest. Neocon has been reduced to neoZERO by Obama. Wake up, smell the coffee! It's a new day in America. It's a new day in the world. The New York Times had an editorial where Cheney, Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzalez and Condolezza Rice might soon be brought to justice for crime against humanity.

Are you following what' s going on in the world. How old are you? Three years old? Don't you know that Bill Clinton, a democratic president undid what George H. Bush (Papa Bush) did to Aristide. Don't you know that Bill Clinton returned Aristide to power in October 15, 1994 after Aristide was overthrown by Papa Bush. Now, Obama, also a democratic president, will return Aristide to power after Baby Bush (George W. Bush) had overthrown Titid a second time. Haitians never lose. We are patient. We always conquer. We can endure and we know how to win.

In March 1995, I traveled with Pres. Bill Clinton to Haiti. I taught him some Haitian words. When Clinton arrived in Haiti, he thanked the Haitians for saving the U.S. Revolution in 1779.

Clinton might have put Aristide back, but not before Aristide surrendered Haiti's economic sovereignity to the IMF and the World Bank, which, as you must know, ordered him to dismantle the tariffs protecting haitian agriculture, a thing that sent the rice farmers of the Artibonite straight into bankruptcy. In other words, the dwarf was nothing more than a figurehead of those international credit institutions. Sorry chimere, but you'll have to do better than that. It's a good to thing to remember the "glories" of the past, but last I saw, they haven't helped you put the food back on your families' table, nor have prevented the inmigrants coming to the DR from making their children forsake any ties to their motherland whenever they can help it.

One of the reasons why Aristide was overthrown a second time was because he refused to implement IMF plan. As far as Haitians living in DR, they are Dominicans born on Domincan soil. Just because their skins are dark, you claim they are not Dominicans. Shame on you racist bastard! That's why DR is under investigation by the UN and several other International Human Rights organization. DR will soon have to pay for the mistreatment of its own citizens. There is a lawsuit coming up by International Human Rights organizations that will bankrupt DR unless it settles and pays reparation to Haitian-Domincans.

Basquiat is the only black artist in th world, whose paintings are being sold for the same price as some of Picasso's artworks). Michaelle Jean, Born in Haiti, is currently the Governor General of Canada. I can go on and on. Haitian millionaires, educated, stars, superstars in the U.S., France and Canada are ready to help. There are plenty of ressources ready to help Haiti. That's why foreign interventions in Haitian affairs are omnipresent in contributing to create chaos in order to destabilize Haiti. Don't worry.

Well good for you with all your positive thinking! Haitians should really be proud of their diaspora and all their achievements. But the fact remains that most private organizations and semi public entities do not offer more and abundant donations and grants to Haiti, simply because of the fact that the donations and help never reach the end users because of the blatant corruption of the government facilitators that are supposed to deliver this help to the needy Haitian masses.
I don't really want to lock horns with you regarding Aristide, but consider this:
What legacy did Aristide leave for Haiti? What accomplishments did he do?
What infrastructure works he left in place? Why it was plainly demonstrated that he
partook in graft and corruption even using public moneys for his own personal gain,
and those official charges were never contested by him?
I read that even he "forgot" in a safe at his home hundreds of thousands of moldy US currency were found by the mobs.

The nomination of Monsieur Patrick Gaspard is old news.
Remember that he will be working in an Obama USA administration, not a Haitian one,
and he will be more closely watched and judged by his peers if he deviates one iota from this mission to benefit Haiti for instance.
The public opinion courts in the US and opposition watch dogs are not to be fooled with and they will be looking for any opportunity to discredit him.
So consider the wise nomination of Mr. Gaspard neutral at the most for Haiti's benefit.

etienn the spaniard have been in hispanola way before the french.... get yourself familiar with the Treaty of Ryswick.

Spain controlled the entire island of Hispaniola (also called Santo Domingo or San Domingo) from the 1490s until the 17th century, when French pirates began to establish bases on the western portions of the island. In the Treaty of Ryswick in 1697, Spain formally recognized French control of the western third of the island

Until she spoke, no Christian nation had abolished Negro slavery.

Until she spoke, no Christian nation had given to the world an organized effort to abolish slavery.

Until she spoke, the slave ship, followed by hungry sharks, greedy to devour the dead and dying slaves flung overboard to feed them, ploughed in peace the South Atlantic, painting the sea with the Negro's blood.

Until she spoke, the slave trade was sanctioned by all the Christian nations of the world, and our land of liberty and light included.

Men made fortunes by this infernal traffic, and were esteemed as good Christians, and the standing types and representations of the Savior of the World.

Until Haiti spoke, the church was silent, and the pulpit was dumb.

Slave-traders lived and slave-traders died.

Funeral sermons were preached over them, and of them it was said that they died in the triumphs of the Christian faith and went to heaven among the just.

etiennc01,

Haiti is still a might. Haiti is still a power house. No other country in the world had accomplished what Haiti did. Haiti is not selfish and never was. We fought to liberate the whole island. We fought to save the U.S. Revolutionary War. We empowered Simon Bolivar and Francisco Miranda in the fights for the independence of Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia and Ecuador. Haiti assisted Greece during its struggle for independence against Turkey. Just meditate on how Haiti defeated the Spanish, the English and the French. Obama has a lot of Haitian friends. There is a sizable Haitian community in Chicago, Illinois. Obama knows Haiti's history inside out. Obama's wife, Michelle, majored in African Study . Why do you think Obama was quick to appoint Haitian-American, Patrick Gaspard, to such a powerful position as the White House Political Director? Obama has been using Haitian's secret weapon as well. Haiti's secret weapon is well and alive. Case closed.

WhySmittly,Dominicanation,Thank you answering questions that I have not posed and refusing to answer the questions that I have posed.
Answering my questions would have given you the tools and resources to predict the future of Haiti and enable you to make appropriate adjustment and modification.This is what we call historical determinism.
When you know and accept the mistakes and shortcomings of the past,you can make sure that they do not repeat them in the future,
I hope that you have chosen to ignore my questions just to avoid embarassment and shame but nevertheless, you do understand that the creators of Haiti's present misery were the selfisness,the absurdity,the meaness,the lack of political maturity and instinct,the colon's instint of Haitians.
I hope one day we will stop being political adolescents,blaming everydbody else except Haitians for Haiti's problems.You will muster the will,the courage to revisit Haiti's bloody history and understand that " you reap what you sow"

Real smart people who get zombified, i don t have to talk about the mass. Aristide can help Haiti thousands other way without being a political leader. but beside all this he knows that he won t be able to set foot in Haiti before 5 or 7 years. So Haitian let s stop thinking about Aristide " a crazy genious is more dangerous than an ignorant one....peace to y all

haitian1804,

For your info, Titid will be back to Haiti in about three months (March 2009 the latest.) Aristide is going back to Haiti as a private citizen. Maybe he will teach at universities and he will continue to write books, in addition to the other 20 books that he has already written. Haiti will never be stable without Aristide. Aristide still enjoys about 80% the support of the Haitian people. Again, write down: "Aristide will return to Haiti in the next three months (March 2009). You can take it to the bank. This is news straight from the source.

As long as Aristide is alive, he is almost indispensable for Haiti's survival and stability. You have the proof. Since he left Haiti, Haiti has been at a standstill. Haitians in the diaspora stop investing and traveling to Haiti, as well as foreigners and tourists. NO ARISTIDE ! NO PEACE !

Whysmitty Haiti has never been defeated? France sends a naval squad and forces haitians to pay a debt of $150 million francs threatening to invade the island, the debt is lowered to $60 million francs due to Haiti's poverty, the debt is paid in full by 1947 or so. 1844 the inhabitants of the eastern side of the island declare their independence and throw off the haitian yoke. 11 attempted invasions at occupying the newly formed Dominican Republic are foiled, haitians are defeated every single time. The U.S. occupy Haiti in 1915, the military changes the constitution and blots out one of it's most important tenets an article that states whites can't own land or property. The U.S. finally leaves in 1934, Haiti is better off with a new viable infrastructure. But Haiti returns back to it's old practice of corruption and coup d' etats. From then on Haiti has been in turmoil till today, slavery stll exist but this time it's even worst haitians enslave their own children. Continued.....

I don't believe that you have your facts correct with the Haitian debt. It was paid many times over including the interest payments and it took about 80 years to be paid in full.
That places the termination date sometime around early 1900's.

Did you hear me? The most powerful man in the world as of January 20, 2009 will be a black man. His father came straight from the continent of Africa (Kenya) just like the father of another black Haitian genius (Toussaint Louverture) is from Africa (Benin/Dahomey). For your record, I have dated th entire spectrum: Blacks like me, Japanese, Whites, Chinese, Latinas. I have traveled around the world. I have seen the progress that the world has made in term of race relations. That's why the whole world has welcomed Barack Obama as their new leader. I will never lower myself to your level.
