Prospectors on Weather Channel
I was going ask if anyone had heard anything about the new Weather Channel series Prospectors, but while starting this I found it is more about gems than gold
Prospectors (w/t) is a 9 x 30-minute series following a small ragtag group who brave Colorado’s mountains to find precious gems, including topaz, aquamarine and rhodochrosite.

Hadn't heard about it. Just set my box to record the series.

Sounds interesting - thanks, Ben. My Better half's grown daughter made the trip with a friend to Colorado Springs to hunt for the gems. She came back
with several nice aquamarines. Nice specimens of topaz, amazonite, etc. can be almost as valuable as gold by weight, so.... She said the hike up the
mountain almost did her in though. (elev. over 8,000ft in some gem areas.)
