HAITI - EURASIAN MINERALS of Vancouver is working a gold prospect in Haiti, the first Canadian company to do so since the late 1990s. The La Miel project, in the northeast corner of the country, is a 35-km-long claim group of highly prospective ground said to be similar to and on trend with the Pueblo Viejo gold-silver deposit next door in the Dominican Republic.
Soil and trench sampling at La Miel is returning anomalous gold values. Assay results from the first three of six trenches include the following: 42.0 m at 0.65 g/t Au, 72.0 m at 1.90 g/t and 150.0 m at 1.03 g/t.
Eurasian believes its ground in Haiti is a Cretaceous formation that may host an epithermal gold-silver deposit or a copper-gold porphyry deposit. The company notes that the business climate of the country is improving and began its program in 2006. Maps and pictures are available at www.EurasianMinerals.com.
The poor, Caribbean nation is taking steps to improve the lives of its citizens. Its textile sector is growing thanks to a U.S. decision to allow more Haitian-made clothing imports. Haitian president Rene Preval has done a credible job of easing political tensions and defusing potential bloodshed. The United Nations troops in Port-au-Prince have removed the citys powerful gangs. As for natural resources, Haiti is known to have deposits of bauxite, copper and gold. Visit www.Haiti.org to learn more about investing in that country.
