''It is an honor to accept the secretary general's invitation to become special envoy to Haiti,'' Clinton said Monday in a statement to The Miami Herald. "Last year's natural disasters took a great toll, but Haiti's government and people have the determination and ability to `build back better,' not just to repair the damage done but to lay the foundations for the long-term sustainable development that has elud

There is a HUGE difference between the geology of Saudi Arabia and that of Haiti. Haiti does not have massive Oil fields. It does not have ANY oil. It does not have any resources of any kind of any significance. It has people, uneducated people, dirt, and a depleted land and ocean environment. It is not somewhere you would choose to live. My guess is that those suggesting otherwise, have never been there and are simply making wild speculations.
Projects in Haiti
The geology of Haiti is prospective exploration terrain for epithermal gold-silver as well as copper-gold porphyry deposits, and consists of preserved remnants of a Cretaceous island arc assemblage situated along the northern margin of the Caribbean Plate. This geologic environment hosts numerous gold and copper occurrences in Haiti, 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). However, even though Haiti's mineral potential is similar to that found in the Dominican Republic, it has remained under-explored.
