About the Show
Deep in Western Australia, under the harshest conditions imaginable, only mankind’s most advanced technology will get the world’s most precious metal out of the ground. Each year, hundreds flock to Kalgoorlie, the legendary frontier town in the Australian outback, to make their fortune seeking gold. Men have been digging here for over a hundred years – and have found over 50 million ounces of gold. To get the gold, you don’t need connections, you don’t need schooling and you don’t need years of experience. All you need is a dream and the will – to continue, no matter the odds, no matter the personal cost, no matter how extreme the conditions. The challenge? To stay alive. As lucrative as mining gold is, it is also among the most dangerous jobs in the world. Over the course of 90 days, follow seven souls from across the globe who have come to seek their fortune in the harsh land of the golden mile. Who will survive? Who will fail? Who will triumph? In the midst of gruelling labour in an unfamiliar, frightening environment, these fascinating characters have one final chance at redemption. They lay it all on the line... for gold.
