ADDITIONAL NOTES: a show on hiatus for longer than 12 months - without any news about its future - is assumed to be canceled
DESCRIPTION: (from Animal Planet's press release, July 2012) On Friday, August 24, at 10 PM et/pt, an elite team of leading prospectors, gemologists and miners set off on an adrenaline-fueled adventure as they head to an ancient Indian city believed to have been the source of some of the world's most valuable diamonds, including the Hope diamond and the Koh-i-nor. Now, the city's mines are about to be submerged under the waters of a newly constructed dam. Joining forces, these LOST TREASURE HUNTERS share a common mission: unearth the ancient diamond mines of India's Golconda region. But they must defy a myriad of obstacles, including extreme weather, treacherous locations on land and in water, venomous snakes, crocodiles and language barriers. In addition, they face a culture that's rife with superstition and an unshakeable belief that anyone who attempts to upset the Golconda region will be cursed.
