Haiti's Gold Mining Potential
November 30, 2011 @ 4:00 am
By Shihoko Goto - Exclusive to Gold Investing News

With gold prices climbing to ever-greater heights and many analysts expecting the momentum to gain still further, investing in gold mines would seem like a logical step forward. For countries rich in precious metals such as Haiti, the opportunity to cash in gold at $1,715 an ounce and possibly above appears to be here now, with its untapped mines potentially leading to a financial bonanza as a new government settles in.

This is a “great opportunity” for Eurasian Minerals [3] (TSXV:EMX [4]) to move forward with exploring in Haiti, said the mining group's director of investor relations Scott Close.

Indeed, the Littleton, Colorado-based company announced earlier this month that it had identified new exploration targets and been granted an additional 19 prospecting permits. In a joint venture with Newmont Ventures [5] (NYSE:NEM [6]), a wholly owned subsidiary of Newmont Mining [7], Eurasian Minerals currently has six projects across the country.

Granted, political risk is not unusual for most precious metal mines, which often are located in some of the poorest and unstable parts of the world. In fact, political unrest led to the closure of Haiti's last copper mine in the early 1970s, and since then, investors have shied away from getting back into the market.

Still, the election of Michel Martelly as Haiti's new president to rebuild the country from the 2010 earthquake and decades of corrupt rule has renewed mining hopes for the government and foreign investors alike.

Martelly has pressed for restoring law and order, but there is no doubt that the country still remains heavily dependent on overseas humanitarian aid as well as United Nations peacekeepers for security.

Still, the gold bulls are on the run across Latin America and the Caribbean, and Eurasia Minerals far from alone in having high hopes for Haiti's mining potential.

Last week, shares in Majescor Resources [8] (TSXV:MJX [9]) surged as it reported that the first of two holes drilled at its Douvray porphyry deposits returned 0.565 percent copper [10] over a 255-meter interval, while the second drill encountered 0.566 percent copper over 371.1 meters.

Gold grades are still pending, but many analysts expect positive results to be reported soon.

Of course, the risks of mining stem not only from the political situation at the country of origin, but also from environmental damages due to heavy mining as well as problems in distributing revenue so that it benefits the overall population, and not just the corporations and a handful of executives.

But many mining giants are learning from their past mistakes and often go out of their way to ensure that they take their projects' environmental and social impacts into consideration, and international organizations are rallying to help companies increase their profits while supporting local governments and communities at the same time.

In fact last week, the World Gold Council [11] and the World Bank [12]'s oil [13], gas [14], and mining unit examined the mining industries in Ghana, Tanzania and Peru to discuss the importance of the private sectors working together to ensure that revenues are invested efficiently and for the benefit of communities.

“When public and private actors work in partnership, gold mining can have real and positive benefits for the communities around the mining sites and for the mining countries in general,” said the World Bank's Sustainable Development Vice President Rachel Kyte.

“It is possible to make concrete progress when and wherever there is the political will and a robust regulatory framework to ensure that the revenues are well managed and invested in sustainable development.”

In fact, Haiti's neighboring Dominican Republic may be a success story in the making of balancing corporate profit with bolstering national wealth at the same time.
The Pueblo Viejo mine is soon expected to be the fourth-largest gold mine in the world, and Eurasian Minerals projects that Haiti to have similar mineral potential as well.

Pueblo Viejo is a $3.3 billion joint venture between Barrick Gold [15] (NYSE:ABX [16]) and Goldcorp [17] (NYSE:GG [18]) that is expected to lead to $8 billion in revenue for the government of the Dominican Republic.

Barrick has publicly declared that it has made it a priority to address the social as well as economic issues that comes with being responsible for a mine with declared reserves of 23.7 million ounces of gold.

In an interview with Achieving Business Excellence in September, Manuel Bonilla, President of Pueblo Viejo Dominicana Coporation/Barrick pointed out the need for the company to ensure that gold revenue can be “translated into long-term sustainable economic gain for the country and its people. This responsibility is an integral part of the business and forms part of everything we do.”

Let's hope the people will benfit from this opportunity.I hesitate to invest in gold stocks because O always wonder what would be the impact of these mines on the price of Gold on the world market.Doesn't the law of supply and demand dictate the value of a commodity or precious metal?What would happen if Russia for example decides to sell its gold on the world market?

At any rate I am glad that finally there are companies which are interested in exploiting the gold mines in haiti.Let's hope the politicians will not receive kick backs from these companies exploiting the gold like they did with the Reynolds Co which left Miragoane with nothing after extracting our beauxite for many years in the fifties and sixties.

Canada/Haïti : Jacques-Édouard Alexis soupçonne des non-dits Le Nouvelliste | Publié le : 2013-01-10 Carl-Henry Cadet Aloccarlo@hotmail.com Le ministre canadien de la coopération internationale, Julian Fantino cbc.ca/news/interactives/

"The square mileage now licensed for exploration to outside mineral and metal extractors is the equivalent of about 15 percent of the country’s total land mass."

"While Dieuseul Anglade was [Director of the Bureau of Mines], the new government under President Micky Martelly, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU)... to authorize exploratory drilling. Anglade felt that the agreement contravened Haitian law and refused to sign the document. Instead, he says, it was signed by the minister of public works, whose agency is in charge of the Bureau of Mines. Anglade himself was fired."

Under Haitian law, Haiti’s share of the profits from these mines must total 50 percent. Under the terms of the MOU, the sections in Haiti’s longstanding mining conventions protecting that 50 percent have been eliminated.

Ce ministre canadien de la coopération veut geler l'aide à Haïti, les dirigeants haïtiens peuvent-ils s'en laver les mains ? Non, selon l'ancien Premier ministre Jacques-Edouard Alexis. Bien que, depuis des années, très peu de fonds de la coopération canadienne sont acheminés vers le ministère de la Planification, le gouvernement haïtien reste responsable des projets financés par l'aide externe, a-t-il analysé.

Sur les ondes de Radio Magik 9, l'ancien candidat à la présidence et ancien ministre de l'Intérieur a souligné, ce mardi, le rôle de surveillance que les autorités haïtiennes devraient jouer dans l'opération des firmes et ONG étrangères. « Au cas où les activités fonctionnent mal, c'est de la responsabilité de l'Etat haïtien d'interpeller le gouvernement canadien », a-t-il soutenu, regrettant qu'il n'y a pas assez de gouvernements en Haïti n'ont le courage de refuser des fonds de la coopération externe.

« Par ailleurs, au regard de l'attitude du ministre canadien de la Coopération, je suis presque certain qu'il y a des non-dits », a poursuivi l'ancien ministre de l'Intérieur. « Ce sont des intérêts bassement matériels qui vont au-delà des faiblesses de la coopération qui sont en jeu. Probablement, il existe des luttes entre certains Etats pour profiter des ressources minières du pays », a déclaré l'homme politique.

Jacques-Edouard Alexis a alors critiqué le manque de transparence de l'Etat haïtien dans les activités de prospection et d'exploitation minière dans le pays. Le gouvernement a accordé, fin décembre 2012, à deux entreprises, dont une société canadienne, trois permis d'exploitation minière. Situées dans la région Nord du pays, les mines en question regorgent d'or et de cuivre, estimés à plus de 12 milliards de dollars. « C'est surtout à l'étranger que ces informations ont été communiquées. Il y a un manque de transparence sur l'octroi de ces permis d'exploitation et le peuple n'était pas assez au courant de l'évolution des discussions sur cette question », a estimé M. Alexis, Premier ministre de mars 1999 à février 2001 et de juin 2006 à septembre 2008.
