Animal Planet's ICE COLD GOLD 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 six-part 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 ICE COLD GOLD 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.

At 836,000 square miles, Greenland is the world’s largest island. Most of the land was undisturbed during a 400,000 to 800,000-year-old icy reign, however, global warming in the past decade has forced Greenland from its mysterious, cold isolation. Its melting ice sheets reveal immense potential for mineral wealth in the virgin rocks below.

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. For the first time on television, ICE COLD GOLD deploys cameras in Greenland to follow eight miners on the frontlines of this modern day mining rush, where they hope to find the next big precious metal or gem deposit.

Greenland is a veritable beast, but the motley crew of ICE COLD GOLD miners is up for the challenge.
