Watch Ghost Mine
- 2 Seasons
Ghost Mine was a paranormal reality show that aired on Syfy in 2013. The series followed a group of miners and paranormal investigators as they explored the reportedly haunted Crescent Mine in Sumpter, Oregon. The show had two main stars: Kristen Luman, a paranormal investigator, and Patrick Doyle, a season miner. Other notable cast members included foreman Jay Verburg, mechanic Stan Griffiths, and geologist/expert on the paranormal Larry Overman.
The premise of Ghost Mine was based on the idea that the Crescent Mine was cursed by a mythical creature called the "Blue Devil." To avoid tempting the creature, the miners were forbidden from removing gold from certain areas of the mine. However, the crew was determined to find the mother lode and continued to search for gold in forbidden areas, despite the potential consequences.
The paranormal activity witnessed throughout the show included unexplained noises, shadow figures, apparitions, and physical attacks. The crew attempted to communicate with the entities responsible for the hauntings through various methods, such as EVP sessions and spirit boxes. The team also utilized paranormal investigative tools like thermal imaging cameras and EMF detectors to capture evidence of the supernatural.
Ghost Mine had a unique blend of traditional paranormal investigation and mining-themed challenges. The miners were faced with various obstacles, such as cave-ins and equipment malfunctions, on top of the paranormal elements that plagued the mine. The crew's goal was to strike gold while also documenting and investigating any paranormal activity.
The cast members had distinct personalities that added to the entertainment value of the show. Kristen Luman was the fearless leader of the paranormal investigation team, while Patrick Doyle often served as the voice of reason among the miners. Jay Verburg was the authoritative foreman who kept the mining operations running smoothly, and Stan Griffiths provided comedic relief as the mechanic who often found himself in some precarious situations.
One of the show's most significant assets was Larry Overman's expertise in paranormal investigation and geology. Overman was able to provide scientific explanations for some of the phenomena experienced in the mine, while also offering insights into the history of the area.
Despite its unique premise and interesting cast, Ghost Mine only aired for two seasons before being cancelled in 2013. The show's abrupt end left many questions unanswered, and fans of the show were disappointed that they would not see the miners hit the mother lode or uncover the secrets of the Crescent Mine's paranormal activity.
Overall, Ghost Mine was an entertaining blend of paranormal investigation and mining that provided a unique twist on the reality show genre. Its relatively short run was disappointing to fans, but the show has since gained a cult following that continues to appreciate its thrilling investigations into the unknown.
Ghost Mine is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (19 episodes). The series first aired on January 16, 2013.
