Natural gas seeps exist in Northern Maakhir and the existence of large petro deposits is high. Minerals tin, copper,iron ore and gold are in abundance independently explored and recovered Maakhir can put the middle finger up to Somalia. The question is not when our proven natural resource will be explored but cutting our tie to Somalia when they are recovered. Oil and mineral rich Maakhir needs to take a step forward, restore their Sultanate and excercise their territorial integrity. We can not be leached by the cripple Somalia, its a matter of exploration and taking the sovereign route without question.
