"The locations are rugged and unforgiving, and the people who work in these remote and inhospitable locales are a breed apart. The Flying Miners is a series that tells a unique Australian story. Part blue chip contemporary analysis of the mining industry and part observational documentary, this compelling series focuses on the eclectic group of individuals who work in and around the remote iron ore towns of Port Hedland in Western Australia, the coal fields of the Bowen basin in Queensland and the gold mines of outback Kalgoorlie. Interwoven throughout is the high stakes story of the Australian mining executives who keep the wheels turning, and the FIFOs men and women who fly in and out of mining sites, typically two weeks on and two weeks off, in search of the big bucks. Often they pay a price, a personal cost. This is an adventure story where everyday Australians risk a lot for a shot at the good life."
