Jungle Gold

Image 1 / 7

Brand new series ‘Jungle Gold' follows George Wright and Scott Lomu who four years ago were real estate high-rollers. By the time he was 25 years-old George was worth a million dollars, while 33-year-old Scott was turning over properties for a cool three million. However, they were so intent on the next deal they ignored the warning signs - and lost everything in the 2008 property crash. With their houses and families' futures suddenly on the line, George and Scott had to come up with an answer. Desperate to turn their lives around, the pair made the life changing decision to travel from Utah to the jungles of Ghana in West Africa, whose vast reserves of gold rich ground mean even rookie miners with aging machinery can make a fortune. Having purchased an 80 acre gold rich claim, the duo set off in the hope of striking it rich. But while getting the gold out of the ground is tough, keeping hold of the gold in the dangerous depths of the Ghanaian jungle and staying alive long enough to reap the rewards is the real challenge. Join Scott and George as they risk their lives and battle mechanical difficulties, territory disputes, deadly competition and the jungle itself in an effort to reclaim the lives they once had.
