They are a group of eight men who are hungry to make a fortune as they hunt the globe. The show follows these miners into places that are harsh and have never been seen before. It is a window into the world of the dangers and thrills of mining for a living. The show is named "Ice Cold Gold" because these miners will be mining in Greenland. The miners face not only cold but harsh storms and wildlife that deter them from accomplishing their goals. Experienced miners, a geologist and even a contractor from many walks of life have exactly two months to find the gold and gems that they are told are present but that they must locate.

The life of a miner means that they are exposed to terribly harsh environments and unspeakable dangers. The series takes a look at the challenges these men will face in the cold environment that Greenland offers. They must accomplish finding the riches as the race the clock to beat other prospectors and large mining companies to their locations.

The series creates a bundle of stories for each miner. The miners each have their own individual fears and will face tough decisions as they use all of their skills to find precious metals. Some will sacrifice safety to get to the goods first. It is interesting to watch the way that age affects the decision of these miners who range in age from their twenties to well into their fifties. Each miner is unique in personality but the common bond of striking it rich brings the overall theme full circle in an action packed look at what being a gold and gem miner must do to strike it rich.
