A hill in DRC known as Goma, has recently been discovered to have 90% gold. The villagers are seen trying to utilize their new discovery as much as they can afford to.
DR Congo is ranked the richest country in the world, in terms of total natural resources rents (% of GDP).
A video circulating on social media shows scores of people digging up the loot before government kicks in.
