Gold Rush, one of the Discovery Channel’s most popular shows, is receiving a spin-off series called Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune, which shows a new side of the mining industry that goes to even more dangerous extremes in their quest for gold. As if being a miner wasn’t difficult enough, the miners in Winter’s Fortune must also contend with subzero conditions in order to earn a larger paycheck, or risk losing everything. Before it premieres tonight on the Discovery Channel at 8 p.m. ET, you can see an exclusive clip from the series premiere of Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune above.
According to a press release, “When winter arrives and the gold-rich earth freezes over, one mining season comes to a close and the battle for the next starts. Soaring gold prices have prompted a land rush, with some miners rushing to find new gold-rich claims and others preparing to construct a new fleet of earth-moving equipment. To succeed, they’ll have to battle arctic conditions, including subzero temperatures and mountains of snow that make even the most basic tasks almost difficult. If they locate the proper terrain and develop a watertight combat strategy, the spring may deliver the largest gold hauls ever. The miners risk losing everything if they don’t.”
“Fan favorites Tony Beets, Rick Ness, Dave Turin, Fred Lewis, and Dustin Hurt will be featured in the series as they go about their winter prospecting, buying, and permitting in order to meet their lofty season objectives. The miners have a great chance while they wait for the spring thaw. Will they make the required preparations to guarantee the most successful season in franchise history? Or will they be left with nothing?
“As the offseason starts, ‘Comeback Kid’ Rick Ness has some unexpected news that he hopes will persuade his teammates that he is focused on the future. To accomplish a nugget-filled season this year, he has to elevate his business to a new level with the appropriate wash-plant, drilling technology, and monster dozer.
Tony Beets, dubbed the “King of the Klondike,” is a gold mining legend with 35 years of experience in the Klondike. The experienced miner wants to make up for lost time while half of his operations remain offline. He intends to go all in on the high gold price in order to profit from it. Tony plans to quadruple his gold harvest this year by risking millions of dollars on a high-risk giant equipment upgrade. Did the Klondike King, on the other hand, take on more than he could handle?
“Master prospector Dave Turin is likewise looking for a huge payday. Finding the ground, on the other hand, is a challenge. Dave has spent the last three seasons traveling throughout the nation, reviving abandoned mines and discovering gold that the old-timers left behind, after starting his mining career with the Hoffman team. He’ll have to start his gold prospecting quest early and fend off the competitors if he wants to surpass his gold total from last season. Will he be able to withstand the strain as the modern-day land grab intensifies?
“Military veteran and local ‘Greenhorn’ Fred Lewis is likewise hoping for a large payday. Fred and his experienced crew extracted just $12,000 worth of gold in their first season. He’s willing to take the risk and show he can strike it rich. Will he be able to locate a claim that pays and persuade his family and military brothers to come back with him this season?
“Finally, Dustin Hurt, the ‘Dare Devil Miner,’ is on the search. However, he must first survive a trip to ensure that his camp has not been damaged by recent landslides in Haines, which might be a catastrophic blow as the new mining season approaches.
“For the first time ever, Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune brings fans inside the high-stakes gambles of the gold mining offseason.”
The series premiere of Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on the Discovery Channel.
