Dakota Fred (72) and his son Dustin are risking their lives to find a fortune in gold nuggets, diving deep beneath the raging waters of one of Alaska’s wildest creeks. This is gold mining at its most extreme: their camp was destroyed by grizzlies last year, access to the creek is a zip-wire over a 400-foot canyon and every day they face hypothermia while diving in the freezing rapids, in the search for a massive deposit of nuggets.
