Hunt for a huge fortune

Four years ago, George Right and Scott Lomu were real-estate high-
rollers. By the time he was 25, George was worth a million dollars, while Scott was
turning over properties for a cool three million. But they ignored the warning signs and lost everything in the 2008 property crash.
They made a life-changing decision and headed for the jungles of Ghana, where the vast reserves of gold mean that even a rookie can strike it rich.
However, doing this isn’t as easy as it seems. Catch ‘Jungle Gold’ on the Discovery Channel at 10 pm on January 12 to see the challenges the duo face.
