AMERICAN MINERS EMBARK ON A DANGEROUS JOURNEY
IN ALL-NEW DISCOVERY SERIES ‘LEGEND OF CROC GOLD’ PREMIERING NOVEMBER 23 AT 10PM ET
(New York, New York) – On the island of Bougainville, nestled just miles off of the coast of Papua New Guinea, sits one of the largest untapped gold reserves in the world. Miners from around the world have dreamt of prospecting Bougainville’s legendary rivers of gold, but few have dared come face to face with its fearful guardians– ferocious crocodiles that have claimed the lives of countless fortune-seekers. The collapse of his booming Alaskan mining business has pushed Farley Dean, his family and his crew into ferocious crocodile territory, where they’ll tackle a daring mining adventure like no other. LEGEND OF CROC GOLD premieres on November 23 at 10PM ET.
In Bougainville, the promise of riches comes with steep risk. Dean and his crew wade into lethal waters searching for gold just months after a local teenage boy was killed and eaten by a crocodile. Now, with never-before-seen mining techniques and the promise of an island teeming with gold, the crew will risk everything or return to Alaska with nothing.
With bankruptcy looming, Dean is left with no choice but to move his operation into uncharted territory. Can Farley Dean and his team cheat death amongst some of the world’s most ferocious predators and find the American dream half way around the globe?
LEGEND OF CROC GOLD is produced for Discovery Channel by American Chainsaws Entertainment, with Royal Malloy, Duke Straub, Colt Straub, and Alex Eastburg as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Christo Doyle is executive producer and Katlyn Higgins is associate producer.
