Mineral Explorers



Digging, dynamite, danger -- it's all in a day's work! MINERAL EXPLORERS is a docu-style, unscripted, reality series packed with adventure, travel, education and the world's finest gems, crystals and minerals. Each episode follows veteran mineral dealer, Thomas Nagin, as he travels to the richest and most remote mines on Earth, taking viewers with him to experience a world of immense wealth, unique people and spectacular natural beauty.

MINERAL EXPLORERS is back this September with all new adventures! Season Two features stops in Peru (2 episodes), Souther California, Spain, Portugal and Tucson -- as well as a special episode highlighting behind-the-scenes stories from the road.

Marigold Media Group launched the public television broadcast campaign for this series with a lively, interactive break event at the PTPA meeting in New Orleans in October 2014. Our activities also included providing assisting in the creation of promotion materials (postcard, online ad for Current.org, on-air promos) as well securing broadcasts with public television stations around the country.

  • Season Two premieres on public television stations starting September 3, 2016 (check local listings).
  • Produced by Mineral Explorers, LLC and distributed by National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA).
