Legend of Croc Gold


#1

Looks like an interesting new gold series on TV from Discovery…

On the island of Bougainville, nestled just miles off 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.

Watched the first episode, looks like it has potential.

The shots they show of the local gold in a pan looks very interesting. Almost like it’s been melted and flowed into some of its shapes.
