According to BBC News a mountain with soil rich in up to 60 to 90% gold. While I think 90% is an exaggeration, it's like nothing we have ever found before.
Stop reading this post, watch this 2 minute YouTube video. You have to see this with your own eyes.
Locals have shown up in droves to mine this mineral rich soil completely changing their lives in minutes. Local authorities have since banned mining until they set up some "oversight".
This mountain is located in Luhihi, South Kivu about 30 miles from the capital.
Again, if you haven't watched the 2 minute video above, I suggest you do so immediately, I'll wait.
While the local government will allow mining, it will require an artisan mining license. An artisan miner is a private party mining on their own with whatever tools they can get their hands on.
The primary reason behind shutting down the mining is so the government can identify everyone mining likely for tax purposes. While mining for gold in the Congo is very common, reporting it for tax reasons is not.
Prior to halting the mining operations in the area, a large portion of Armed Forces soldiers (FARDC) were present in the area causing a lot of disorder and tension. This is prohibited by the Congo's mining code in the area.
I wonder how many are going to fly out to this area to try to get their own piece and how long until a warlord or some rich person lays claim.
Imagine if they use this to buy crypto!
