RAW TV - 3 x 45 minutes
Filmed in Ghana, West Africa Jungle Gold is an epic story of our time. Ex Realtors Scott Lomu and George Wright travelled seven thousand miles from Utah to lease a gold claim.
Between them they faced over a $1 million in debts after their real estate businesses went belly up in America's recession. Their plan was simple… they needed to pull 500 ounces of gold out of the ground over four months to clear all that they owed and create a new future for their families. The story follows the incredible highs and lows they as they battled Africa to realise their dreams - facing hostile, gun toting competitors, illegal roadblocks and underground mining operations.
