I’m pleased to announce that a large shipment of my new books and Extreme Prospector ball caps arrived in Happy Camp yesterday, and the girls are busy filling orders.  This is all 14 months in the making for me, so it really feels good!

Some of you will recall that we did a substantial art contest last winter.  The contest was about coming up with a logo for Extreme Prospector.  More than 60 artists participated and sent in all sorts of good ideas.  These ideas evolved into several working concepts as the contest progressed.  In the end, we settled for four separate logos.

We have now taken the four winning logos and had them embroidered onto high-quality ball caps. This is not screen printing.  It is first class embroidery!   Limited numbers of each cap are available in red, black and blue.  These caps were not cheap to make!  But we are selling them for only $10 each because nothing would make me more pleased than seeing a whole bunch of Extreme Prospector ball caps circulating around the world!

You better get yours before the rush!  I’m hoping the “rush” will start with the airing of Lost Treasure Hunters on 23 December.

Now that everything is in place, handling time on books and caps is a matter of just a day or so.  You can call in an order at (530) 493-2062, or you can order on line by going here.

I just got word that Animal Planet is tentatively planning to air the full series of Lost Treasure Hunters starting at 8 AM on 6 March 2014.

The producer says that people should check with your local channel listings, because all of this is subject to change. The producer also said that the international networks in Asia and Europe have picked up our show.  It’s all good news.  Now let’s hope for some good ratings! Don’t forget to set your DVR’s!  I’ll be very interested in your comments on my facebook page.

Here is a 5-minute preview of Lost Treasure Hunters.  It is very exciting to see early promotional material now being played on the Internet. The full reality show was originally scheduled to begin on 24 August.  But Animal Planet decided to push the show back to early this next year.  Here is their press release which introduces the show and the cast members.  Fellow cast member, Steve Newbery, posted summaries for each of the initial five episodes right here.

Dave McCracken - Lost Treasure Hunters

I recently teamed up with Discovery Network and four other specialists to participate in an adventure-packed expedition to locate the famous Golconda diamond mines of India. Lost for maybe 250 years, the world’s most famous diamonds originated from these very same mines, including the Hope Diamond.

The (very) challenging project forced our team to overcome a myriad of obstacles, including extreme weather, treacherous locations on land and in water, venomous snakes, crocodiles and language barriers, all within a culture that is rife with superstition and an unshakeable belief that anyone who attempts to find the lost mines would be cursed.

Indian Diamond WorkersAnimal Planet will cover the entire adventure in five continuing episodes. Here is the first episode of Lost Treasure Hunters. It is very exciting to see early promotional material now being played on the Internet.  Fellow cast member, Steve Newbery, has posted summaries for each of the initial five episodes right here. 

We constructed and shipped a very special suction dredge to India from Happy Camp,California to support this project.  While you will have to watch the show to see how it all plays out, I believe you will be pleased with the expanded exposure to suction dredging as a means to uncover fortune and economic opportunities.

I personally believe a big part of moving the legal and political realities more in our favor is to increase awareness broadly about what we do.  Surveys show that most people like the idea of being able to go out and discover fun and fortune. The Discovery specials on suction dredging in Alaska are also helping a lot with this.
