      Canadian company to explore for gold in Haiti
      Associated Press, 04.27.09, 06:58 PM EDT

      A Montreal-based mining company has announced plans to explore the mountains of northeastern Haiti for gold and copper.
      Majescor Resources Inc. Will explore the site in a partnership with Simact Mining Holding Inc., a Long Island, New York-based consortium of Haitian American investors.

      Majescor President Marc-Andre Bernier said Monday the company is encouraged by explorations that Eurasian Minerals Inc. Is conducting at a nearby site.

      Gold and copper were found in the Caribbean nation decades ago, but Haiti's instability and lack of infrastructure have discouraged investment.

      A Barrick Gold Corp. ( ABX - news - people ) site about 130 miles (210 kilometers) southeast in the Dominican Republic is estimated to contain 20.4 million ounces of gold.[url=http://www.margueritelaurent.com/pressclips/miningresources.html]Marguerite Laurent.com | Haiti's Mining Resources[/media]http://www.margueritelaurent.com/pre...LiveBlanFL.jpg



      Majescor to Acquire Interest in a Strategic Gold-Copper Property in Haiti


      by Marketwire, April 23, 2009

      MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 04/23/09 -- Majescor Resources Inc. ("Majescor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: MJX) is pleased to report that it has signed an agreement (the "Agreement") with SIMACT Alliance Copper Gold Inc. ("SIMACT") and its principal shareholders (the "Principals") whereby the Company will acquire a 10% interest in SIMACT, as well an option to acquire the remaining 90% interest. SIMACT, through its 66.4%-owned Haitian affiliate mining company, Societe Miniere du Nord-Est S.A. ("SOMINE"), controls a property with both gold and copper potential, (the "SOMINE Property") located in the North-East mineral district of Haiti. The SOMINE Property lies within a highly prospective volcanic arc environment, host to numerous epithermal gold and porphyry copper occurrences in Haiti, as well as the World-Class Pueblo Viejo gold deposit in the adjacent Dominican Republic. The property holds the historical Blondin and Douvray copper-gold prospects; the historical Faille-B gold prospect; along with a number of recently-discovered copper-gold showings.

      Marc-Andre Bernier, President and CEO of the Company states: "Majescor has an established, ten-year long tradition of exploring emerging mineral districts. The deal with SIMACT and its Principals offers a new and unique opportunity for the Company to participate in the evaluation and development of a key property located in the prospective Massif-du-Nord volcanic complex of north-east Haiti.
      We believe that the time is right to invest in Haiti and in projects with gold and copper potential. Gold has remained a steady commodity in this economic downturn while copper has just hit a 6-month high. Not only does the SOMINE Property contain three historical copper and gold occurrences, the mineral rights of which are secured under a mining convention with the State, but it is surrounded by ground recently acquired by Eurasian Minerals Inc. And partner Newmont Ventures Ltd. Majescor intends to fast-track the development of the SOMINE Property through further quantification of the three known prospects and the drill testing of new geological targets and ground showings."

      SIMACT and SOMINE

      SIMACT is a Montreal-based private company headed by a group of Canadian financiers and Haitian-American developers. The alliance aims to promote sustainable mineral development initiatives in Haiti by creating synergies between the Canadian financial and mining communities and the North American Haitian Diaspora.

      SIMACT holds title to 66.4 % of all the issued and outstanding shares of SOMINE, a company incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Haiti. SOMINE in turn, has 100% title to the SOMINE Property. SOMINE's mineral rights and obligations have been assigned under a mining convention executed with the State of Haiti on May, 5, 2005 (the "Mining Convention"), which covers a 50 km2 Research Permit and is valid until March 9, 2010, and under a Prospecting Permit awarded in 2006. The Prospecting Permit, which encompasses four areas lying to the East, South and Southeast of the permit subject to the Mining Convention, expired in December 2008. SOMINE has requested the conversion of the Prospecting Permit into a Research Permit and has filed all technical and source documents in support of its application with the Haitian Bureau of Mines and Energy. The Research Permit is pending.

      The Principals of SIMACT own approximately 80% of SIMACT's issued and outstanding common shares.

      Terms of the Agreement

      The terms of the Agreement with SIMACT and the Principals can be summarized as follows:

      (i) Majescor will acquire from the shareholders of SIMACT 10% of all the issued and outstanding common shares of SIMACT, the whole in consideration of the issuance to all SIMACT shareholders, on a proportionate basis, of 2,000,000 treasury common shares of Majescor, This initial acquisition by Majescor is subject to, among other things: (1) a satisfactory technical and legal due diligence on SIMACT, SOMINE and the SOMINE Property, (2) all SIMACT shareholders accepting to be bound by the terms of the Agreement and (3), all legal and regulatory approvals.
      (ii) Concurrently with the initial acquisition by Majescor, SIMACT and the Principals have agreed to grant Majescor an option ("the Option"), the whole in consideration of an option payment of $200,000 to SIMACT (of which a non-refundable payment of $25,000 has been paid by Majescor on the date of execution of the Agreement) and the carrying out by Majescor of $600,000 in exploration work and other related expenses on the SOMINE Property within 8 months following the execution of this Agreement, to purchase all the remaining SIMACT shares and other securities of SIMACT, if any, held by the current SIMACT shareholders, in consideration for the issuance of 10,000,000 treasury common shares of Majescor to be issued to all current SIMACT shareholders on a proportionate basis. This Option, which is also subject to complete and satisfactory due diligence, may be exercised by Majescor within 12 months from the date hereof. The Company is not obliged to exercise the Option, nor will it have any right to exercise the Option prior to incurring the required work expenses referred to above.

      SIMACT is the operator of the SOMINE Property. The 2009 exploration program for the property, which has been approved by Majescor, calls for core drilling of one or more of the historical prospects, as well as of a number of the recently outlined geological targets and surface gold and copper showings. Majescor may pay to SIMACT any balance of the $600,000 in work expenditures not yet incurred in lieu of incurring such work expenditures. As the Option may constitute a Reverse Take Over within the meaning of the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), the Company will need to obtain all required regulatory and shareholder approvals before exercising the Option.

      (iii) Furthermore, in the event that within a period of two years following the exercise of the Option, a NI 43-101 technical report (the "Report") prepared by an independent and accredited reputable engineering or geological consulting firm determines indicated mineral resources on the SOMINE Property to be between 1,000,000 and 2,000,000 ounces of gold, or its equivalent in copper, Majescor shall, within 30 days of the report, issue an additional 3,000,000 common treasury shares to current SIMACT shareholders. In the event that the indicated mineral resources on the SOMINE Property are determined by the Report to be equal to or greater than 2,000,000 ounces of gold or its equivalent in copper, Majescor shall, within 30 days of the Report and in addition to the 3,000,000 common shares mentioned hereinabove, issue another 3,000,000 common treasury shares to current SIMACT shareholders. These additional issuances of common shares will also be subject to all required corporate and regulatory approvals.

      The Agreement with SIMACT has been approved by all the directors of Majescor, with the exception of Andre Audet, Chairman of Majescor, who declared his interest as a shareholder and director of SIMACT and as such did not participate in the vote.
      Regional Geology and Historical Prospects

      The SOMINE Property area corresponds to a volcanic arc of Meso-Cenozoic Age that can be traced from Central Cuba through the Dominican Republic and forms part of the NW-trending Mountains of the Massif-du-Nord group. This group is composed mainly of volcanic tuffs and lavas from the volcanic belt, ranging in composition from felsic, through intermediate, to mafic and ultramafic rocks. The belt is composed of numerous lenticular bodies of lava and pyroclastic material of felsic composition, varying from dacite to rhyolite, embedded in a thick series of predominantly mafic volcanoclastic rocks, mainly andesite with lesser amounts of basalts, with numerous intercalations of diverse sedimentary rocks, like radiolarian cherts, carbonate rocks, and tuffs.

      Copper and gold are the two main ore types in the area. Copper is usually found associated with the porphyritic facies, the microtonalitic apophyses, and the silicified zones, filling fissures and fractures, as well as disseminated. Within the quartz vein systems, the copper is contained in the chalcopyrite, while the gold appears both as native gold and as a very fine disseminated gold in the sulphide zone. It can also form spectacular concentrations on the oxidised cap. The native gold is usually found associated with chlorite, as well as in grains of pyrite and chalcopyrite. A second generation of gold is usually found associated to the quartz and the chlorite. The gold content is extremely variable.

      The SOMINE Property holds the historical Blondin and Douvray copper-gold prospects; the historical Faille-B gold prospect, as well as a number of recently-outlined geochemical and geophysical targets and surface gold-base metal showings that have not yet been drill tested. The Blondin, Douvray and Faille-B prospects have been known since the 1970's and 1980's when they were investigated in some detail by foreign bilateral and multilateral agencies, in particular the United Nations Development Program ("UNDP"), the German Bundesanstalt fur Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe ("BGR") and the French Bureau de Recherches Geologiques et Miniere ("BRGM"). A series of geochemical and geophysical surveys were carried out on the SOMINE Property. Drilling, trenching, mapping and soil sampling were also performed, as well as metallurgical studies. More recently (1995-2006), the three prospects were investigated by a consortium of Canadian junior mining companies.

      The Douvray, Blondin and Faille-B prospects were reviewed by R. Valls of Valls Geoconsultant in 2004 as part of a NI 43-101 qualifying report written by on behalf of Ste-Genevieve Resources Ltd. (acquired by Ascendant Copper Corp., now Copper Mesa Mining Corp.). This report, entitled "Technical Report of the Geology and Mineral Resources of the Douvray - Blondin - Faille B Copper and Gold Prospects in Haiti" is available at Welcome to the SEDAR Web Site / Bienvenue au Site Web SEDAR.

      At Douvray, the German BGR completed a total of 38 diamond drill holes in 1980. An additional 22 holes were drilled at Douvray in the late 1990s. For Blondin, the bulk of the exploration work appears to have been carried out in the 1970's by the UNDP (8 drill holes totalling 1,500 m). Results from a number of grab samples collected by R. Valls returned values ranging from 1.19 to 8.14% Cu for Douvray and from 1.55 to 10.42% Cu for Blondin.

      The Faille-B gold prospect was investigated under the UNDP's Revolving Fund for Natural Resources Exploration (1982-1987) with 31 holes drilled over a strike-length of 1.8 km. In the course of a trenching campaign carried out in 2007 by SIMACT on the East and West extensions of the Faille-B prospect, significant values were encountered locally, one vein averaging 42.7 g/t Au over 6 m, including values of 107.5 g/t Au over one meter, 61.4 g/t Au over one meter and 41.2 g/t Au over one meter (see Diagnos Inc press release, October 30, 2007). The Faille-B prospect coincides with a major NW-trending structural lineament which extends through to the Blondin copper prospect.

      Field work carried-out by SIMACT elsewhere on the SOMINE property in 2007 focussed on new geological base metals targets. Five grab samples on one of the targets returned copper values of 7.46, 6.21, 9.51, 0.10 and 6.69% Cu respectively. The target represents an outcrop which is highly mineralised over some 20 meters in length and one meter thickness (see Diagnos Inc. Press release dated February 29, 2008).

      Majescor is a junior explorer focusing on emerging mineral districts. Majescor's project portfolio includes two uranium exploration projects in Quebec and one in the Baker Lake basin in Nunavut. The Quebec properties include Mistassini (100%-owned; under option to Strateco Resources Inc.) and Lac Laparre (100%-owned; under option to Santoy Resources Inc.). In Nunavut, the Company holds 100% mineral rights to the Baker Lake uranium property. In addition to uranium, Majescor owns 100% mineral rights to four gold and base metal properties in Madagascar (under option to Sunridge Gold Corp.), as well as 100% mineral rights to the Mirabelli gold and base metal property in Quebec.

      This press release was approved by Jacques Letendre, P.Geo, Director of Majescor, acting as the "Qualified Person" for the Company under National Instrument 43-101.

      Sirona Fuels Launches Jatropha Community Farming in Haiti
      Crushing and Export Program for Existing Projects, Aprill 27, 2009
      SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sirona Fuels, an emerging leader in alternative fuels, announced today that it has begun Jatropha planting operations in Haiti over the past month in a joint venture with 3C Missions, an organization that has established a relief fund for over 1,100 orphaned children in Haiti. Sirona intends to harvest and crush the Jatropha in Haiti, and refine it into a high-quality B100 Biodiesel in the United States. Sirona's nursery operations include planting multiple strains of seeds and seedlings that will be intercropped with Moringa trees. Moringa leaves are high in protein and nutrients and can be simply processed into a micronutrient powder to fight malnutrition.
      “Planting our first Jatropha in Haiti is an important milestone for us and for our Haitian partners,” said Paul Lacourciere, Sirona's CEO. "This represents a critical step in changing the lives of the farmers in Haiti while creating the opportunity for us to deliver high-quality biodiesel that aids in lowering American’s carbon emissions. Additionally, Sirona has also partnered with Haitian farmers that have dedicated land to planting Jatropha, but have not been able to get their product to market.”
      In an effort to spark economy in the region, Sirona will not take ownership of the Haitian Jatropha farms, but rather form a partnership by providing the equipment, seeds, seedlings and technical advice necessary to grow commercially viable Jatropha. The Sirona Cares foundation is also ramping up its activities in the communities in which the Sirona Fuels community farms are located. Among other activities it is distributing medical supplies and mosquito nets to assist communities that are trying to rebuild after last year's devastating hurricanes.
      By working with sustainable and affordable feedstocks like used cooking oil and jatropha, Sirona’s business model is designed to stabilize fuel prices for its customers, provide sustainable revenue to its suppliers and make significant volumes of high-quality biodiesel available to the market. Sirona has identified commercial sources for jatropha in several countries and is developing businesses that will promote the establishment of jatropha farms in Haiti, India and other developing countries.

      Oil in Haiti, by Dr. Georges Michel , webzinemaker.com, March 27, 2004 [This English translation is an HLLN courtersy for our English speakers. Please refer to the French Original.]

      Since time immemorial, it has been no secret that deep in the earthy bowels of the two states that share the island of Haiti and the surrounding waters that there are significant, still untapped deposits of oil. One knows not why they are still untapped.
      Since the early twentieth century, the physical and political map of the island of Haiti, erected in 1908 by Messrs. Alexander Poujol and Henry Thomasset, reported a major oil reservoir in Haiti near the source of the Rio Todo El Mondo, Tributary Right Artibonite River, better known today as the River Thomonde. (Perhaps the word Thomonde is derived from de Todo El Mondo?) The deposit of oil in question straddles the boundary between the boroughs of Hinche and Mirebalais in a mountainous area located at the foot of the chain of the Black Mountains, direction due west of Thomond.

      The same map indicates an oil reservoir in the Dominican plain of Azua, a short distance north of the Dominican Republic in the town of Azua. According to our information, the latter oil field located in the Dominican Republic had actually been operating in the first half of this century, produced up to 60,000 barrels of oil per day and had closed because it was considered at the time "insufficiently profitable." Also in the Dominican Republic, there was announced, in 1982, a discovery, in front of the plain of the Azua, of a huge oil field offshore at the coast of Barahona. But this deposit has been left untapped.

      Those who have traveled from Port-au-Prince to Santo-Domingo can testify that the plain of the Azua and its coastline very much resembles the area of Vieux Bourg d'Aquin and its related coast. Therefore, reasonable chances are that there is hydrocarbon deposits in the counterpart Haitian region, especially as we are told that in the plains of Cayes there is geological evidence of the presence of oil, as well as at the Bay of Cayes, Les Cayes and between Ile a Vache.

      In 1975 we bathed in the waters of Les Cayes and noticed that our feet was covered by a sort of black oil seeping from the seabed. A fisherman from the place explained that this was not uncommon in the area.

      He reports similar phenomena in other regions of Haiti - it seems so in the plains of Leogane and at the foothills of Morne-ŕ-Cabrit. It's also been reported that there is the presence of oil shale in the province of Grand Anse.

      There are still many places on our island (Haiti and Dominican Republic) that meet all the geological criteria for the presence of hydrocarbons. In Haiti, include the plains of Cayes, the plain of Leogane, the plain of Cul-de-Sac, the Gonaives plain and the deserted Savannah, the Plaine du Nord. Ile de la Gonave and literals corresponding to the off-shore deposits. In this list, do not forget the large sedimentary basin of the Central Plateau of Haiti.

      In the course of the 1950s, the Knappen-Tippen-Abbet company (nicknamed by the local people "the company for small bread and butter") conducted drillings in La Gonave, in the Cul-de-Sac plains, in the Plateau-Central and in the region of Gonaives. All of these drillings had proved extremely promising and the results were beyond expectations. However, the big multinational oil companies operating in Haiti pushed for the discovered deposits not to be exploited. Haiti was neither Saudi Arabia nor Kuwait. At a time when a barrel of crude oil sold for just over a dollar, and the Persian Gulf provided oil galore, there was no reason for these companies to put in production these oil fields deemed much less profitable. Especially while ARAMCO [then known as the Arabian American Oil Company] was, rain or shine in Arabia, at a low price, even to the point of looting the precious oil resources of this kingdom.

      [The attitude of these big multinational oil companies was] "We shall keep the Haitian deposits and other such layers of deposits in reserve for the 21st century when the Middle Eastern jackpot are depleted." This is what happened! The wells of Knappen-Tippen-Abbet were numbered, carefully locked or sealed with cement and forgotten.

      The reports of the huge drillings were not, it seems, supposed to be made public to the Haitians. Do you think they would ever hand over to a bunch of backward negroes, information that would allow them to work towards their own economic liberation? This would make them too strong and give too much power to little Haiti.

      Haitians had to wait half a century or a century for that. However, the successful countryside of the Knappen-Tibben-Abbet company, allowed for a great deal of opportunity to many Haitian schools, preparing primary school students for their certificate and studying in the geography textbook of Haiti from the Brothers of Christian Instruction, to learn that our land had oil reservoirs in the Central Plateau and La Gonave. This, did not fall on deaf ears ...

      It is generally known, in all circles, that there are petroleum hydrocarbon deposits in the bowels of the island of Haiti. But the petroleum industry/circles are not eager to put into production these so readily available Haiti oil reserves. Other more important areas were already identified as major oil producing regions of the world. [The thinking was] there will always be time to think about the island of Haiti.

      However, [these big oil entities and the powerful nations] did think of us during the Gulf crisis when Kuwaiti deposits, the Saudis and other oil reservoirs were threatened by Saddam Hussein. If the Cubans had not made a great effort by themselves to put their own oil in exploitation, nobody would have done it for them. If it were not for the efforts of the Cubans, Cuban oil would still be housed in the bowels of the earth, as it remains for Haitian oil. The ball is in our camp ...

      If the big oil companies are not interested in our oil, we should ask our Cuban neighbors to come help us exploit it. In their dramatic search for oil, the Cubans have developed technology and know-how that we could, in return for their services, yield to the Cubans part of our domestic oil production and give them a share of profits. A mission of government officials and businessmen in Haiti should leave for Cuba in this direction.

      The sad case of the international embargo clearly shows that we must fend for ourselves, and especially that we do not have to wait for the OK from the United States when our vital interests are in peril. The whole of our society is aware and sees well how our big northern neighbor has treated us and shall treat us in the future. Haiti will be saved by Haitians and Haitians only, that is the principle lesson of the embargo.

      If our oil was available, we would not have been shamefully forced to capitulate after the oil embargo decided in defiance of international law with their infamous Resolution 841, by the great powers now bearing the pompous and ridiculous name of "international community".

      Our government, our big businessmen, our ultra-liberal economists, our big smugglers, our Chicago-Servant-Boys, our anti-nationalists and others ruffians, prefer to import [everything, even] air, rather than to put to use the resources of Haiti. With a zeal that is hard to understand, they blindly obey the bidding orders of the IMF and World Bank, and are put together with these two organizations to destroy the Haitian economy, especially our valuable agriculture.
      Nevertheless, they find themselves caught out with us. And when imperialism, to meet its gruesome intentions, decides to impose an embargo, the last embargo (there will be perhaps more in the future, who knows?) has proven the need to accelerate economic integration with the Dominican Republic.

      Both Republics should undertake, by treaty, to provide each other with some oil no matter the decisions of a third party. A trans-island pipeline, Barahona to Port-au-Prince, could be part of this oil integration between the two countries that share the island.

      While waiting to be able to consume our own oil, whose surpluses shall also provide the valuable currency we need, we should increase the country's storage capacity for oil products and consider how to stockpile important strategic reserves on the territory of the Republic. The oil embargo of 1991 is also a strong argument for rebuilding our railways.

      I agree Prodigynius that it may be like Bush's Iraq.
      Plans also maybe to make Haiti the Western Hemisphere's South Africa.

      Htp Kwame D, prodigynius, and KheperaEvolutionary,

      Thank you for bringing this well made point to the forefront, KwameD!
      Nice article, prodigynius! I love this quote by Chaves from the article you posted above:

      President Chavez of Venezuela stated that "I read that 3,000 soldiers are arriving, Marines armed as if they were going to war. There is not a shortage of guns there, my God. Doctors, medicine, fuel, field hospitals, that’s what the United States should send," Chavez said on his weekly television show. "They are occupying Haiti undercover."
      "On top of that, you don't see them in the streets. Are they picking up bodies? ... Are they looking for the injured? You don't see them. I haven't seen them. Where are they?"

      In response to the question posed in the article's title...

      I think the issue is bigger than just Ayiti and Iraq. This is protocol on the part of the u.s., and other governments to automatically control the resources of any country that would need "aid." the plan includes trying to create problems for countries/ start war against a country (ie war on "terror") just so that they can step in and take over the resources. The somewhat new term that yt has given for his own tactics is called "Disaster Capitalism," (whether it's all part of a very strategic world domination scheme and/or countries running themselves like large corporations trying to make global profits off of people's suffering and demise... ).

      Please check the video:

      AMPA O me nua Kala ne meda ase for the clip (Very true my sister Kala and thanks for the clip).

      you know one thing that strikes me is the european's ability to name and rename, label and set definitions to its misbehavior in a way that soothes their conscience (assuming they have one) and lulls others into a state of mental sleep. that's one of the reasons i apprecilove the book Yurugu so much because it looks at europeans, their ideology and (mis)behavior from our perspective with our definitions. i think when we unapologetically recognize the need for us to see the world from OUR perspective only and give labels and definitions to what we see we, as a global collective, will we be better able to collectively act in OUR own best self interest all the time. this clip is a good example of the european's use of definitions. interesting that blatant, unprovoked acts of warfare, genocide, new europe imperialism is now called "shock therapy" and "disaster capitalism". no matter how many definitions and re-definitions they come up with its still the same ole, same ole white world terror domination. yurugu is NOTHING if not consistent.
