The mountain was found in Birava village, 35km from the north of Bukavu, in the capital city of South-Kivu province.
In the viral video circulating, the villagers could bee seen digging the mountain containing the gold deposits and taking the soil back to their homes in order to wash the dirt and extract the gold.
The government of DR Congo has not only sent the security forces to take over the mountain but to also recover all the gold already mined by the villagers.
It is reported that the soil there is highly concentrated in gold deposits even as high as 90%.
