Mountain of gold discovered in DR Congo
Villagers in DR Congo have trooped out en masse following the disocvery of a mountain full of gold.
Viral videos showed a cluster of villagers getting their share of what looks like gold from the mountain as they made use of shovels to dig through.
Reports revealed that the villagers, after digging the soil for gold deposits, take them to their homes in order to wash off the dirt and extract the gold.
Although DR Congo has rich reserves of minerals like cobalt, diamonds, copper and gold, according to the BBC, the African country’s citizens remain among the poorest in the world following years of conflict and mismanagement.
