Plot Synopsis

CURSE OF THE FROZEN GOLD is a one-hour reality series that follows six explorers as they explore the legend of Slumach and his lost gold mine, while battling harsh landscape, the unknown and each other to uncover one of the best known unsolved mysteries. Legend has it that a First Nations man named Slumach found a fortune in gold and put a curse on it just before he was hanged. Allegedly worth billions, Slumach's Gold has tantalized prospectors for over a century, and now a team of experienced gold hunters takes up its pursuit -- and the mysterious curse that goes with it -- to stake their claim in history. The gold's lure has claimed numerous gold hunters' lives for over a century -- perhaps victims of the curse or something more sinister. In this series, a team of six daring gold hunters -- including young and fit mountain climbers, a gold-obsessed prospector, a local lodge owner and some savvy, but skeptical old-timers -- have eight short weeks to find gold before winter freezes them out. They're forced to contend with the primordial forest, jagged mountain peaks, predatory wildlife and dangerous cracks in the ice that plummet hundreds of feet. It's a region steeped in danger but the group is fuelled by a severe case of gold fever. While they claim to be working as a team, the clashes and scheming between them could ultimately be their downfall. Animal Planet aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT.
On Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, Animal Planet premiered the season finale of CURSE OF THE FROZEN GOLD. In the season ender, "On the Brink," time's up, and it's a frantic race to find the gold. The team is at a crossroads when Adam drops a bomb that divides opinions. It's a final grasp at gold and glory before winter bears down and they're frozen out.
