Jewelry Television (JTV), one of the largest retailers of gemstones in the world, and The Weather Channel have partnered to present a cross-promotional sweepstakes celebrating the Season 3 premiere of the original primetime series “Prospectors.”

The grand prize of the “$10,000 Prospectors Giveaway” includes rare aquamarine and bixbite gemstones that are valued at $5,000, along with $5,000 in cash.

She  will announce the winner during Season 3’s second episode, which airs December 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET.

JTV’s mission is opening the world of jewelry and gemstones to everyone and this is a timely opportunity to drive audience viewership between JTV and The Weather Channel.”

“Prospectors” follows a group of miners searching for the rarest gems in order to strike it rich. Season 3 brings back the original cast, along with a new family of miners, as they conspire on the mountains of Colorado to seek their fortunes. At 14,000 feet above sea level with 50% less oxygen, the prospectors must brave extreme environmental elements such as close-call lightning strikes, hurricane-force winds and dramatic temperature changes. For those willing to confront the danger, some of the planet’s most rare and precious gems await to be found, with huge paydays to accompany them.

“Prospectors” is produced by High Noon Entertainment (Dude Youre Screwed, Cake Boss).
