DISCOVERY CHANNEL HUNTS FOR WILD WEST TREASURES ON "GHOST TOWN GOLD"

-- New Six-Part Series Premieres on Discovery Channel November 15 at 10 PM ET/PT --

(New York, NY) - Putting the boom back in boomtown, Discovery Channel's new series GHOST TOWN GOLD follows two modern day explorers, Brit Eaton and Scott Glaves, as they track down priceless treasures of the Old West. From 19th century denim jeans to Wild West weaponry, railroad relics to cowboy collectibles, Brit and Scott are always on the prowl to turn what looks like rusty junk into everybody's favorite collectible - cash. GHOST TOWN GOLD premieres on Discovery Channel Thursday, November 15 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Part history buffs, part pickers, Brit and Scott visit old ghost towns, abandoned mining camps and industrial graveyards in search of treasured ruins from the Wild West. Whether it's diving into a well that once hid prohibition-era moonshine or digging through dusty debris at a dilapidated ranch, Brit and Scott's passion for history and the thrill of the hunt, drive them to these old boom-then-bust towns where there's an endless supply of relics to find, explore and hopefully sell. Brit and Scott have each been collecting and selling western memorabilia for over a decade and combined have over 25 years of experience. Today, Brit's warehouse in Durango, Colorado holds more than 1-million artifacts including thousand-dollar whiskey bottles, old west revolvers and one-of-a-kind hand forged branding irons, to name a few. The demand for these iconic items that capture the true spirit of the Old West is insatiable and every object featured in GHOST TOWN GOLD has its own unique story to tell. Following Discovery Channel's premiere of GHOST TOWN GOLD on Thursday, November 15 at 10 PM ET/PT, an encore airing of the series will premiere on Destination America beginning Tuesday, January 1 at 10 PM ET/PT.

GHOST TOWN GOLD is produced by JWM Productions for Destination America. For JWM, Bill Morgan and Jason Williams are executive producers. Brit Eaton is an executive producer and Pamela Deutsch is executive producer for Discovery Channel and Destination America.
