    As far as I know, I think you lost your bet, because we don't have coal of any kind.

    We do have oil, but no substancial amounts have been found.

    I won't be surprise if we are sitting on an "oil lake" and we have not tapped into the reserves yet. All of the ingredients for petroleum to exist are in place and the fact that we have found some oil could suggest to more, larger quantities directly under our feet.

    "coal mines found in the samana peninsula produced a kind of lignite
    which proved of little commercial value and gave rise to the belief
    that the republic's coal deposits had not emerged from the formative
    period. later investigations show that while there is considerable
    undeveloped lignite, coal sui for fuel is not wanting. small coal
    deposits have been discovered in the cibao valley, between the central
    and the northern mountain chain, in the province of pacificador and
    that of santiago. anthracite coal found at tamboril, near the city of
    santiago, was used to run a small motor exhibited at an industrial
    fair in santiago in 1903. in the commune of altamira, province of
    puerto plata, lignite and anthracite beds have been discovered, and
    traces of anthracite have also been found in san cristobal commune,
    and in the petroleum region of azua. in the central mountain chain a
    valuable coal deposit has been found on the haitian side and similar
    beds may be expected in santo domingo."

    Dude, read the posts. There is no coal mined in the DR for commercial use.
