A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series reveals many of the superstitions and traditions of the mining culture, including the idea that women (especially red heads) near mines bring bad luck.
Positive Role Models
The presence of women often leads to some sexist attitudes among older miners.
Violence & Scariness
Plenty of speculation about paranormal behavior. Brief conversations about accidents, deaths, shootings, and other tragic events at the mines, but few actual details are discussed. Explosions are visible. Alleged human bones are visible.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ghost Mine discusses some mining superstitions and alleged paranormal events related to ghosts and evil spirits that younger or sensitive viewers may find scary. Some sexist beliefs are discussed, too. Expect a bit of strong language, with the stronger words bleeped, and brief discussions of tragic events.
Is It Any Good?
Ghost Mine features some interesting historical and present-day information about the mining culture, and reveals many of the superstitions that guide miners while underground. However, many of their legends and beliefs are exploited by the investigators, who are looking at this job as a way to lay the foundation for establishing a new area of investigative research.
Some of the exchanges between the miners and the investigators feel a little rehearsed, and some of the miners go from being paranormal skeptics to believers just a bit too quickly. But the combination of mining stories, creepy video footage, and other effects tells an entertainingly eerie story.
