The discovery of gold-rich ore in Luhihi in late February brought throngs of diggers to the site, South Kivu Mines Minister Venant Burume Muhigirwa said, putting pressure on the small village around 50 km (30 miles) from the provincial capital, Bukavu.
The authorities have decided to ban mining there until more oversight is established, the provincial mines minister said on Thursday.
Subsistence mining – extracting minerals with rudimentary tools – is common across Democratic Republic of Congo, and the “artisanal” gold mining is especially widespread in the gold-producing east and northeast of the country.
