Syfy’s Upfronts revealed some of their new upcoming reality series for the Fall and Summer seasons and one returning ghost show! One includes Joe Rogan, host of “Fear Factor” returning to reality television with a paranormal show. Read more below:
“Ghost Mine” will return for a second season of gold mining and ghost investigations. This unscripted series will air twelve all-new episodes that are set to premiere in September 2013.
For Season 2, the rag-tag team of gold miners and pair of paranormal investigators will return to Eastern Oregon’s Crescent Mine to continue their quest for gold and evidence of ghosts at the notoriously haunted mine. Located near the historic gold mining community of Sumpter, Oregon, the Crescent Mine is believed to contain high amounts of gold.
Each hour-long episode of the new season will feature the Ghost Mine crew battling the elements in hopes of striking it rich while delving further into the mysterious history of the Crescent Mine and revealing new information about the recurring Masonic symbols, Native American presence and a spirit named “Joe.” While the miners use the time-honored tools of their trade – including pickaxes and explosives – the paranormal investigators will introduce special new techniques and innovative gear to capture activity, including a revamped version of the popular RIPA (Remote Investigator of Paranormal Activity).
