U.S. cable net National Geographic Channel has dug deep for its latest Canadian import series: Yukon Gold (pictured), a doc series from Canada’s History Television and indie producer Paperny Entertainment.

The 10 x one-hour series, about four gold mining crews who have four months to discover a big gold find in the Yukon, is to debut in 2013.

“The Yukon is a spectacular part of the world to film in – and the miners we follow are not only authentic gold miners, they are also tenacious and heroic,” company president David Paperny said in a statement. “Best of all, our cameras film them as they find lots of gold.”

The U.S. sale follows Paperny’s recent opening of a New York City development office. Yukon Gold is executive produced by David Paperny, Cal Shumiatcher, Audrey Mehler, Beth Wichterich and Lynne Kirby.
