"Ice Cold Gold" (TV show) on Animal Planet is a reality docu-series that spotlights a spirited team of miners who are among the first Americans to prospect for precious metals and gems in parts of Greenland where humans never have set foot before. The series follows eight men who leave behind their families, friends and homeland to strike it rich against all odds while struggling to survive against the harshest of conditions.

Greenland's a veritable beast, but the motley crew of miners is up for the challenge. Each thinks he has what it takes to walk away with gold, rubies and sapphires before winter and large mining companies swoop in. What transpires as the miners cope with the unpredictable, harsh unknown? Are they humbled by their journey? Do their personalities get in the way? Most importantly, do they strike "Ice Cold Gold"?

At 836,000 square miles, Greenland is the world's largest island, but most of the land of this sleeping giant has been undisturbed during a 400,000 to 800,000-year-old icy reign. For the first time on TV, "Ice Cold Gold" deploys cameras in Greenland to follow the miners on the frontlines of this modern-day mining rush, where the team hopes to find the next big precious metal or gem deposit. In the past decade, global warming has forced Greenland from its mysterious, cold isolation. Recognizing the island nation for its untapped, treasure trove of mineral wealth, the world is now seeing Greenland in a new light. Some of the Greenlandic people hope to profit from this shift; they believe that responsible mining can improve their futures in many ways.

The cast includes Eric Drummond, Chad Watkins, John Self, Jesse Feldman, Josh Feldman, Zach "Gator" Schoose, Jack Duggins and Americo DiSantis.

The first season was shot in summer 2012 in Greenland in its capital city, Nuuk, and the remote area known as Storø within the largest fjord system in the world. It's the largest television production ever filmed in Greenland.

Season 2

In Greenland, the window to the mining season is tight, and this year, Sixty Degree Resources must travel to the most remote mining region in the world by boat and helicopter to reach its deposit. Then, the team must sling in thousands of pounds of heavy-duty mining equipment to get the job done. There is no help within thousands of miles of base camp. They are alone, and any misstep can destroy their collective dreams.

Nearly killing themselves for fortune and glory, these intrepid miners bare all their emotions in chapter two of this life-threatening journey. The odds are loaded against them — with time being their worst enemy — as they face 24-hour sunlight, massive glaciers, unknown wildlife and remote, uncharted territories no American miner ever has set foot on before. And what's revealed on camera may blow your minds!
