I am a History Channel buff.  Tonight they were showing Pale Rider from the 80s and there were some 'authentic' scenes of monitors and wooden sluicing.  It caused me to do a search and I came up with a page of 82 movies that have to do with Mining in Film.

What is your favorite mining movie?

Illustrious Energy is by far my favourite, based on local Chinese gold mining, means a lot to me as I believe I've found one of the old gold miners rings.  Thanks for the tips on the other movies though I'll be sure to get them and watch them, keep 'em coming.

It's a really good movie based locally and highly recommended

"Klondike" is my favorite.  It's a 3 part mini series on the klondike gold rush based on real life people. If you haven't seen it or heard of it, then get it you will never get tired of watching it. My second favorite is "Paint Your Wagon" with  Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood.

      The TV just said Bering Sea Gold coming in September 17th if I heard correct on the date . I look to see what day that landed on and shows Tuesday. That can’t be correct because it’s always on Friday.
       Get back later when are If I hear it again.

      Very true Reg, very few 'young'uns' are having a go....but a certain TV show is helping to a small degree I suspect. But from what Ive seen, the current 'instant gratification' generation doesnt have the patience or fortitude to spend time in the bush for more than half an hour...

      I recognize these guys from a cancelled show about searching for gold in Greenland (was it Ice Cold Gold?).  You never know about these and you don't want to get your hopes up, but I'm going to check it out.

      Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 10:15 A+E Networks® UK today announced the commission of a brand new series, River Hunters, from Hello Halo Productions for flagship channel HISTORY®.
      The 8x60’ series pairs US YouTube sensation Beau Ouimette, a river detectorist with over 30 years’ experience, with presenter and keen swimmer Rick Edwards, as they search the UK’s waterways for archaeological finds. 
      River Hunters will see Rick and river-searching expert Beau, visit some of the most historically significant sites across Britain: covering iconic events and battles including Roman Briton, the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation and the English Civil War. Their searches of these unexplored rivers and waterways unearth treasures from the past which reveal how our various ancestors used to live.
      As the artefacts surface from under layers of silt and rocks, the duo will meet with local archaeologists and historians to unearth the stories and people behind the finds.  Spanning each river’s layered past, the new series will offer a fresh perspective and even redefine our history as we know it.
      Using state-of-the-art technology, archive maps and contemporaneous accounts from the period, Beau and Rick perform the first underwater archeological digs in some of the most exciting and iconic historical sites in Britain, often in dangerous and fast-flowing water.  
      River Hunters was commissioned by Dan Korn, VP of Programming for A+E Networks UK. Diana Carter, Commissioning Editor for A+E Networks UK, will executive produce the series for HISTORY.
      Dan Korn said:  By delving into Britain’s unexplored waterways, this series offers a unique glimpse into the passages of history which shaped our Island Nation and the ways of life of the various invaders and occupiers down the centuries. Some of the artefacts are truly breathtaking and shed new light on the richness of British history, and Beau and Rick’s blossoming partnership over the course of the series is a delight to behold.
      Rick Edwards commented: I’m delighted that we’re able to put to bed the idea that it's just shopping trolleys and old bikes in the UK's rivers - we found some truly extraordinary artefacts, bringing whole new perspectives to the stories from our rich past. I also got very cold.
      Wendy Rattray, Managing Director of Hello Halo, developed the series with Head of Development Natalie Hill, who is also Executive Producer, with Julie Grant as Series Producer.
      Natalie Hill said: With rivers largely unexplored in the UK, but integral to our rich past, this is a unique opportunity to find treasures long forgotten and untouched – from discarded and lost items, to offerings to gods -  each river will tell a tale never seen before.
      The new series will air on HISTORY in the UK in 2019. HISTORY is available on Sky, Virgin, BT and TalkTalk.
