About Gold Rush

The gold mining season is about to begin… and this year means war. With the price of gold holding near record highs, each miner is battling to find and mine the best ground. But with most of the good ground tied up, they are forced to dig deeper and go further into the wilderness in search of the motherlode.

This year mining prodigy Parker Schnabel finds himself with his back against the wall. After years of growing gold totals, the 26-year-old is running out of ground – forcing him to gamble on a narrow paystreak that could be the richest he’s mined. But there’s a big problem… it’s more than 50 feet below the surface. To get down to paydirt he’ll have to spend millions. Will Parker finally stumble? Or will he notch another record breaking gold total? As he taps out his Klondike claims, he also travels deep into the Alaskan wilderness in search of his next big claim.

Returning this season is King of the Klondike himself, Tony Beets. Tony has spent four decades building a family gold mining empire. This year, he’s putting it all on the line to cash in on his life’s work with the goal of mining 9,000 ounces – worth upwards of $16 million at today’s prices. For most of Tony’s career, he’s been buying up gold-rich ground in the Yukon. This season, Tony has big plans to re-open his Indian River operation and has spent more than $5 million in new gear to mine it and the Paradise Hill claims 24/7. There is just one big problem. There is no water license on the Indian river. Will all the pieces come together in time before the new season? And will Tony and his family be able keep up with the grueling work to mine that much gold?

Also returning this season is Rick Ness, who starts the year on a hot paystreak and ahead of schedule. Rick is coming in swinging by doubling down and going for 2,000 ounces of gold, the most he’s ever mined. But Rick starts the season off as a captain without a crew. Two of his key teammates don’t return, leaving him to supersize his operation’s horsepower to make up for the lack of manpower. Rick breaks out a massive half million-dollar dozer – one of the biggest you can buy – as well a massive new excavator. Will the comeback kid finally end up on top?

Meanwhile, special forces veteran Fred Lewis is also back. After striking out in Oregon last season, Fred is driving into the Yukon with the dream to make it as a gold miner and provide a windfall for his all-veteran crew. He cannot fail again. Upon arriving in the Yukon, Fred reaches out to the only person he knows – Parker Schnabel. Will Fred be able to muscle in on some ground in the Klondike?

This season of GOLD RUSH is unlike any other as each of the miners and their crews battle the odds and the elements in the hope of finding millions in gold. There’s a ground war in the inhospitable wilderness of the Klondike. But one thing is certain, once gold fever strikes, these crews will never give up.

After a record gold haul last year, veteran gold miner Dustin Hurt returns to Alaska to discover his McKinley Creek mine site buried in snow after suffering the heaviest snowfall in over a decade. The unseasonably late snow creates challenges from day one.

As Dustin and his team of fearless white-water miners forge ahead, his father Fred Hurt returns to Alaska with shocking news. For the first time in four years, Fred will forgo running a white-water operation of his own and embark on a hunt for his next big mining opportunity. It’s a mission to keep the family’s mining legacy alive. For Dustin, Fred’s sudden change in plans presents an opportunity; buy up Fred’s mining equipment and for the first time ever, run two crews simultaneously.

Bering Sea Gold

The cards have been dealt, and now, for the fearless miners of Nome, it’s time to go all-in. Relentless snowstorms and hypothermic temperatures, new crew members and shifting power dynamics along with weather-induced equipment malfunctions leave the miners dealing with more than they bargained for this ice mining season. But with the price of gold remaining high, folding is not an option. This winter, the miners who dared to take a seat at the table will learn their fate, grinding through the brutal winter to see if they’ve got a winning hand… or whether the biggest gambles of their careers leave them in the muck.

Nome, Alaska has one trick up its sleeve: bombarding the gold grounds with blizzards that are dumping more snow onto the ice than miners have ever seen. With these brutal conditions hitting every few days, mining shacks and gear are getting snowed-in, forcing the miners to dig out and haul their equipment as fast as they can for any opportunity to mine before the next blizzard hits. One thing’s a given this season: these miners are ready to up the ante no matter what comes between them and the potential payoff of a lifetime.

Shawn Pomrenke returns with his eyes on the prize, diving into the frigid unknown, fighting windchills of 50 below, alongside diver Joe Fullwood. With a problematic air compressor, Shawn faces challenges right out of the gate. But his intuition for gold rarely leaves him empty handed, and he’s chasing a golden jackpot he believes lies in an ancient river bed. Yet everyone knows that winter’s cruel dealings level the playing field for all miners and even Mr. Gold himself is not safe from the fury.

Mastermind Zeke Tenhoff, whose last ice mining season caused him to pack his bags, is coming in fresh and determined with a new crew, consisting of his other brother Gabe, friend Shlomo, and Gabe’s mischievous canine, Stormy. And what kind of ice mining season would it be if Steve Riedel didn’t make an appearance? He’ll lend a hand to Zeke in any way he can, even if that means serving as the pizza delivery guy. As he runs into stingy waters, Zeke will have to persuade Shawn to grant him access to the Tomcod. Will this business relationship prove profitable or disastrous?

Kris Kelly has more weighing on him than ever before — both on the ice and off. While trying to make this season his most successful yet, he’s gone in over his head on expensive new mining equipment and is also preparing for fatherhood. The soon-to-be dad must learn how to balance his high-stakes mining season along with caring for a newborn. Is he ready for the biggest journey of his life, or will the pressure cause him to fold?

This season’s wild card Vernon Adkison is on a hot streak on his coveted Claim 56, but he must contend with a lead in the ice threatening his entire operation. On some of the best gold of his life, Vernon pushes the crew and equipment to keep mining, as they move closer and closer to the open water at the edge of the ice. Will lady luck continue to bless Vernon or betray him when he least expects it?

With every miner seated at the table and placing their most audacious bets, only time will tell whether Nome will call their bluffs or give them a chance to score the ultimate payoff.
