Jungle Gold

Jungle Gold


Former real estate high-rollers George and Scott regularly turned over million dollar deals. Their families reaped the rewards of their hard work as both men enjoyed the American dream. But after Missing the warning signs of a real estate market about to crash and burn, both men lost everything. In desperate economic straits, Scott planned to move his family into his father’s basement as George worked to postpone the foreclosure on his home. With their futures on the line, they make a bold decision to risk it all to mine for gold in the West African jungles of Ghana, a region with vast reserves of gold-rich ground that could ensure even these rookies with aging machinery can strike it rich.

With little money and everything on the line, they beg and borrow anything they can to succeed. After securing a $150,000 from an investor, the pressure is on from the very start to find gold to pay back this loan, as well as their other debts that exceed one million dollars. But mining for "Jungle Gold" is the easy part for George and Scott. Armed neighbors, miles of broken roads, roadblocks manned by Ghanaian gangs, and shady and ruthless gold buyers are among the daily hurdles they must face and overcome to succeed in their plan to safely escape Ghana with enough gold to secure their families' futures.
