TROU DU NORD, Haiti — Its capital is blighted with earthquake rubble. Its countryside is shorn of trees, chopped down for fuel. And yet, Haiti's land may hold the key to relieving centuries of poverty, disaster and disease: There is gold hidden in its hills — and silver and copper, too.

A flurry of exploratory drilling in the past year has found precious metals worth potentially $20 billion deep below the tropical ridges in the country's northeastern mountains. Now, a mining company is drilling around the clock to determine how to get those metals out.
Fantastic! Now they can be independent and other nations, like ours, can hang on to the money that would have been used as foreign aid. But wait...
"If the mining companies are honest and if Haiti has a good government, then here is a way for this country to move forward," said Bureau of Mines Director Dieuseul Anglade.
Those might be difficult. What are the chances they will spend it wisely versus blowing it?

If they drill too many holes, that island will sink!
Which may be the reason behind someone floating the idea there are riches in the land. Since they can't clean up the place, deep six it.
