Lost Treasure Hunters: Animal Planet Starts Monday, 28 July, For Three Days

Lost Treasure Hunters: Animal Planet Starts Monday, 28 July, For Three Days
We are excited to let you know that the Animal Planet is doing a marathon of the Lost Treasure Hunter episodes (six total) for three days starting Monday the 28th of July.

Click here to check the schedule of Animal Planet ...
.... look under Monday the 28, Tuesday the 29th, and Wednesday the 30th.

Unless it changes, right now it looks like they start at 6 PM and runs to Midnight.

Check out Rob and his fellow treasure hunters as they search for diamonds in India.  They're real-life Indiana Joneses -- but for profit rather than posterity. In this series, prospector Sam Speerstra and his team of treasure hunters investigate the clues left by ancient civilizations, then go in search of long-lost riches. Their work begins in an ancient Indian city believed to have been the source of some of the world's most valuable diamonds, including the Hope diamond. Legend has it that the diamond mines of Golconda were depleted 250 years ago, but Speerstra believes the area is still rich with gems. He has dedicated his life to finding them, and this is his final chance, for the impending construction of a dam will soon erase the mines from the Indian landscape

Big Sky Gold Mining

Big Sky Gold mining
We are saddled up and washing gold again. We finished up some reclamation; have a good stockpile of pay gravel,  and a new mining plan; its 16 hrs a day mining in Montana.

I do have internet but its painfully slow as we are very remote. Blogs will be a bit sparse.

Check out the July issue of Rock and Gem. I wrote an article about gold mining in Montana.
