A video from the Republic of the Congo documents the biggest surprise for some villagers in the country, as an entire mountain filled with gold was discovered. The gold mountain from Luhihi invoked thousands of people to swarm the village in the Congo’s South Kivu province. South Kivu’s Minister, Venant Burume Muhigirwa, said the gold rush added pressure to the small village of residents. They dig the soil inside the gold deposits and take them to their homes in order to wash the dirt and extract the gold.
here were no confirmed estimates as to how much gold was found in the region, The recent UN report says the Congo and other countries alongside the eastern border have been known to be major gold regions worth billions. The gold is being mined out of the earth by what people call “artisanal” miners. It has been said that artisanal miners mine by rudimentary means like using shovels in contrast to major operations with powered excavators. Massive amounts of gold in the Congo alone filters into the financial system underreported and derive from regions like the provincial capital of Bukavu, Ituri province, and Luhihi.
