SIBLING PROSPECTORS JOSH AND JESSE FELDMAN SEEK OUT AMERICA’S MISSING TREASURES IN NEW TRAVEL CHANNEL SERIES ‘LOST GOLD’ – PREMIERING MONDAY, JANUARY 14 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT
NEW YORK (December 6, 2018) – Behind every lost treasure is a story. Travel Channel’s new series “Lost Gold,” premiering on Monday, January 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, follows brothers Josh and Jesse Feldman as they seek out America’s most fabled missing treasures. With a family history steeped in lost mines, buried gold and Old West lore, the Arizona natives aren’t your typical treasure hunters. To unravel these more than 100-year-old mysteries, the Feldmans put themselves in the shoes of the people of the era. Every hunt is grounded in history: they search for old maps, diaries and records, as well as connect with locals who have intimate knowledge of the area. With reverence for the past and a taste for adventure, the brothers track legends and clues across the vast American Frontier in search of unfound riches. Throughout each of the six one-hour episodes, their dogged determination will uncover new leads, fresh perspectives on history and even gold.
“Treasure comes in different forms,” said Jesse Feldman. “It’s not just gold coming out of the ground. It’s discovering history.”
“We have pulled the truth out of the legend, and we’ve pulled the truth from history,” added Josh Feldman. “Only the truth will lead you to the treasure!”
In the premiere episode, Josh and Jesse delve into their family’s treasure-hunting legacy and Arizona history to unravel the mystery of the Lost Adams Diggings, one of the most famous lost mines in the Southwest. A new lead sends the brothers deep into the desert where the promise of gold in a hidden canyon may finally be within reach.

ABOUT JOSH and JESSE FELDMAN
Josh and Jesse are Arizona cowboys, gold miners, prospectors and treasure hunters. Aside from blood, these commonalities have kept them together and bonded them as brothers. The Feldman Brothers have searched the mountains of the American West for lost gold mines and buried treasures their entire lives. Their adventures have also taken them to the remote regions of Greenland, where their small mining company discovered an extensive ruby deposit. “Ice Cold Gold,” a reality show on Animal Planet, filmed their exploits and followed the discovery for three years. The Feldman Brothers’ passion for exploring and putting together the fragments of history comes from their desire to keep the past alive and to inform the public about the land beneath their feet.
