Shaw Media’s History Television has commissioned Yukon Gold, a reality series about miners in pursuit of gold in Canada’s North, from Paperny Entertainment.

The indie producer will shoot for four months to produce 10 one-hours capturing four mining crews in and around Dawson City. Battling mechanical breakdowns and 24-hour days, the miners attempt to hit pay-dirt.

Yukon Gold is executive produced by David Paperny, Cal Shumiatcher and Audrey Mehler. The series will debut in Canada in early 2013 on History.
