Plot Synopsis

JUNGLE GOLD follows greenhorn gold miners who seek their fortunes in the dangerous and gold-rich jungles of Ghana, Africa's second largest gold producing country. With little money and everything on the line, rookie American gold miners George Wright and Scott Lomu beg and borrow anything they can. George and Scott lost it all in the 2008 U.S. real estate crash, and now they're trying to pay off their debts and rebuild their bank accounts. After securing $150,000 from an investor, the pressure is on from the very start to launch their mining operation and find gold -- all while facing off with hostile Chinese miners, battling the unforgiving jungle, and surviving the threat of historic floods. Season 2, which premiered on Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT, found Scott and George heading back to Ghana with $1 million in debt, but determined to find gold. In the second season, they faced armed guards, life threatening road accidents, and violent confrontations in a desperate attempt to get their excavators back and save their mining deal.
