History Channel puts spotlight on Guyana gold – “Bamazon”

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Dec. 21, 2012: Guyana’s gold has been put in the spotlight on the new History Channel series, ‘Bamazon,’ which wraps up at 10 p.m. on Dec. 27th.

The show, shot in the Amazon jungle of Guyana, follows eight out-of-work Alabama construction workers led by Alabama real estate mogul Tim Evans, who are risking everything they’ve got on a long-shot chance to find gold in the mineral rich South American nation.           

They have only six weeks to hit it rich and with two episodes left, the crew of determined ‘Bama boys on the hunt for gold in the Amazon, near the Cuyuni River.

Viewers get a front row seat to the magnificent rivers, fauna and majestic yet intimidating jungle of Guyana and are given a lesson in mining for gold from a creek bed as the crew battles rapids; evades predators to retrieve the excavator and the illness the jungle can cause.

Tune in to the History Channel Sunday night at 10 p.m. for another episode of ‘Bamazon.’

    When the gold are all extracted from our land, could someone say ‘What’s next’. When we are out of minerals, can the Govt tell the population what will happen to them in the future? This is worrying to me.

    This gold searching expedition from the USA must also be a good incentive to the Coastal Dwellers in Guyana who always want good things on a platter and in their homes! The Gold is for Guyanese who either must get up and get like the Brazilians and Venezuealians who also legally minding for all this great amount of gold annually.

    As guyanese, and from the Pomeroon, I do agree with the above readers.
    My families, are farmers also were gold diggers, Now ther younger folks are owners of dredges with more morden equipments, still to make a great fortunes
    for themselves…..May I ask this Question?/…Will the rich Americans share the wealth with the people of Guyana/

    This is plundering and raping of Guyana’s resources under the guise of entertainment, and very low prole at that!!! WTH……Looks like Guyana has more Fox viewers than the US!

    If the Gold Mining authorities will give the Mining Liscences to all and sundry without the necessary backgroung checks then any criminal can become a miner and any group of invaders can own the mineral rich areas of the Hinterlands. In 2012 the Gold Board declared 400,000 ounces of Gold passed through their hands and they are happy as this represents an increase over the Previous 2011
    output. But nearby Suriname has announced doubled figures and almost half of their gold came from Guyana. So we need Security and a system to arrest the gold smuggling out of the Production areas in Guyana. The Curacao Gold Fiasco is another example of this escaping of our produced and refined gold to the unknown and not so distant lands!

    The declaration of 400,000 ounces of gold by the Gold Board for 2012 is commendable,but what about the thousands of ounces of undeclared gold which often find it’s way through other channels other than the GB.If in fact gold is one of the primary source of revenue for the government,then strict regulatory practices should be put in place for the benefit of all Guyanese and the country as a whole.
