"Bering Sea Gold"
Season Premiere Wednesday, March 30 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery

          How do you land the biggest cleanup in Bering Sea Gold history?  In short: gamble.  It’s the start of the summer mining season, and the dredgers of Nome, Alaska, face a new reality. With gold on the trusted Tomcod claim growing scarce, the miners risk everything to strike pay dirt. From state-of-the-art technology to untested remote claims, millions of dollars have been invested, which means the miners of Bering Sea Gold face pressure like never before. It’s now or never when Bering Sea Gold returns for an all-new season on Wednesday, March 30 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery.
 
          This season, no one takes bigger risks than the Pomrenke family. Shawn, aka Mr. Gold, ventures 100 miles to an unproven claim at “The Bluff” while his father sinks the family fortune into a new inland mining operation. Meanwhile, despite owning her own dredge, The Eroica, Emily Riedel has trouble scrounging up a crew. Her former flame Zeke Tenhoff would rather mine for a large corporation than spend one more season on the water with Emily.
 

          On the Reaper, Brad Kelly has big plans to strike it rich by purchasing 40 acres of off-shore claims, but first needs to convince his sons to bury the hatchet and rejoin the family business. 
 
         Meanwhile, Vernon Adkison feels pressure from investors when he struggles to find a ship to launch his “golden seahorse,” and veteran miner Derek McLarty spends every penny he has to join the ranks as captain of his own brand new, guitar-shaped dredge: the High Noon.
