A destitute impoverished country with no engineering infrastructure at all needs Europe and/or America/Canada to mine this gold.

Anyone taking the risk to mine this country is going to want to be paid a lot to do it.

How to make this win/win? ( If the corrupt Haitian govetnment gets it claws in it, the average Haitian wont get a penny)

$20 Billion... thats all?

Afghanistan has over $1 Trillion in precious metals, rare earths, copper, titanium and magnesium. Lets see how this one turns out for the poor Afghanis.


U.S. defense officials estimated in 2010 that there could be as much as $1 trillion worth of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and lithium in Afghanistan.

The Haitian government is corrupt because it gets rich by perpetuating the country's neo-colonial dependency. If the Haitian people had control over their own resources, this problem would be solved and it would be a rich trading nation with self sustaining agriculture.

For their enslavement (France, British traders), wars of attempted re-enslavement/extermination (France, Spain, Britain), then swindling and proxy oppression (France again, USA, Canada - via the Duvaliers, military, UN, TN corporations etc) of the Haitians for 300 years, all of Europe and US/Canada owe Haiti the engineering infrastructure for free.
