Congo Villagers Discover Mountain of Gold

There’s some major news coming out of the continent that almost made me drop my phone after reading it.

Villagers in the Democratic Republic of Congo have discovered a mountain full of gold. Viral videos circulating the internet show the villagers digging in the mountain and taking the soil back to their homes to wash the dirt and extract the gold. This discovery happened after heavy rainfalls in the village exposed gold minerals in the mountain.

The location of the villagers is unknown, which is a good thing because I’m sure many outsiders are waiting in line to stake a claim.

Until Next Time…
