Returning to the Ghost Mine
Published: 2:23 PM 5/7/2013
Fans of ghost-chasing shows have struck gold: a second helping of ghost excavation and exploration is on its way.
It was announced recently that the hit paranormal ghost show, Ghost Mine, has been renewed by SyFy, with a 12-episode season two set to premier as early as September of 2013.
If you are unfamiliar with the show, here's a little background. The gold mining industry is ripe with ghost stories from the Gold Rush days when excavators risked it all to strike it rich in the mines—some more literally than others. Many people went into the mines and never came out.
Ghost Mine capitalizes on one such unfortunate tomb, the notoriously haunted East Oregon's Crescent Mine, to uncover the events and truth of what happened there.
In season one a motley crew of excavators searching for gold teamed up with a pair of paranormal investigators to take over for a previous crew who, despite the prospect of bountiful gold preserves, couldn't handle the level of paranormal activity within the mine.
After cave-ins, power outages, and other dangers, the new excavators indeed discover gold. But they also find more than they bargained for: secret hidden passages, links to secret societies, phantom winds, watch the clip, mysterious voices, and even a full figured apparition.
Season two sees the return to Crescent Mine. Back are the gold-seekers and their paranormal investigator counterparts, Patrick and Kristen, who continue to dig further into the tales, symbols, and spirits found within the mine. Also returning are the innovative, high tech gear the team uses and new techniques for exploration and discovery.
Ghost Mine is a hybrid between the popular ghost hunter shows, like the long running Ghost Hunters, (also on Syfy) and the more recent gold hunting shows, like Discovery's Gold Rush, that have been gaining traction of late. It's a formula that is apparently working.
The first season of Ghost Mine had great numbers—raking in 1.25 million viewers per episode on average. It also did better during its premier than its Ghost Hunters peer.
If you want to catch up on season one, the episodes should be available on demand with your cable or satellite provider. You can also catch them on the SyFy website for free (with ads). If you don't mind paying a few bucks, you can check them out on YouTube as well.
