Gold Rush: Winter's Fortune

back to projects

When winter hits and the gold-rich ground freezes, one mining season ends, and the fight for the next begins. Soaring gold prices have sparked a land grab, sending some miners scrambling to hunt down new gold rich claims while others set out to build a new arsenal of earth moving machines. To be successful, they’ll have to fight through artic conditions with subfreezing temperatures and piles of snow that make even the simplest task, nearly impossible. The spring could bring the biggest gold hauls ever if they find the right ground and build a bulletproof battle plan. If they don’t, the miners risk losing it all

The series will follow fan favorites including Tony Beets, Rick Ness, Dave Turin, Fred Lewis and Dustin Hurt – as they go about their winter prospecting, purchasing and permitting in preparation to hit their ambitious season goals.

Premieres Friday, July 30, at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery and Streaming on discovery+
