Where is the “mountain of gold”?

A BBC journalist in DRC said the mountain is located in Brava village, 35km north of Bukavu. According to the same source, the government has deployed police to restore order and recover the gold that the villagers have dug.

Although the Democratic Republic of Congo has rich reserves of minerals like cobalt, diamonds, copper, and gold, this African country’s citizens remain among the world’s poorest.
