Gold Rush: They Just Discovered A Mountain Of Gold In Their Village, Changing Their Lives Forever.

The poverty and struggles of thousands of poor and deprived people seems to have come to an end after they discovered a mountain rich in gold.

The gold content in the mountain is so high that the villagers just have to dig up the soil and take it home to go wash it off to find the gold dust which is then smelted to get the nuggets. The gold deposit in the mountain is so huge and close to the surface that after they dig the soil, a little wash with water reveals the precious dust, unlike most cases where the dug up soil is washed over and over again until just a little gold dust is found.

This discovery was made in South Kivu, in the eastern part of D.R Congo.

The country is known to be the richest country in the world in terms of natural resources. Unfortunately, many years of civil war, which is mainly triggered by western powers has rendered the country poor and hugely underdeveloped.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed over the years as a result of the struggle for the nation’s vast natural resources.

With the discovery of this huge gold mountain, it is believed the government would take charge of it shortly.

But until then, it is obvious the people in the village will work as hard as possible to get as much gold as their hands can lay on to better their lot in life.
