When Parker Selfridge wants to explain the situation (the 'Blue Monkeys') to Jake, he says that Hometree is on the richest Unobtanium deposit for 200 clicks in any direction. His wording suggests that other, richer deposits are farther away. It would be much easier to relocate the camp to a new deposit than it would be to move the Na'vi, but Jake makes a point to the Na'vi that more humans will come "Like a rain that never ends" So it would be expected that future camps will be set up on other deposits, and would only waste resources to relocate.
There are no opening credits of any kind (outside of the 20th Century Fox title card). The title of the film doesn't appear on screen until the end of the movie.
