Chinese police have discovered an illegal Bitcoin mining operation that was being run in two burial mounds in the surrounding fields of Daqing city, Heilongjiang province. 

The officers found an entrance in the vicinity of the mounds, and after some digging, the police discovered Bitcoin mining hardware that was running on stolen electricity. The  police investigated the area after a local oil firm told law enforcement about unexplained power losses.

Most of the world’s crypto mining happens in remote areas in China where electricity is cheaply available, and natural conditions favor the mining activities. 

Earlier this week, the local media reported that law enforcement found 54 Bitcoin mining rigs under a dog kennel in the same county in Heilongjiang province earlier the same week.
