“Gold Rush: White Water”
Season Premiere Friday, January 4 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel

          The Dakota Boys are back for a second season, risking it all in a death-defying hunt for gold in the remote mountains of Southeast Alaska. This season, Dakota Fred and his son Dustin are mining for nuggets in the raging torrents of glacier-fed McKinley Creek using heated wet suits to dive beneath the freezing plunge pools. But has the father-son duo taken on more than they can handle? The Alaskan wilderness is as brutal as ever -- as they battle against ferocious weather, flash floods, falling boulders and hungry bears. The men also face catastrophic equipment failures in a mad dash to hit the jackpot that could make them millionaires.

          Last season, the Dakota Boys’ quest for gold ended in disaster when a landslide sent a flash flood cascading through their mine site. Three months of hard work was wiped out virtually overnight, just days after their biggest gold haul of the season. Determined as ever, the Dakota Boys are back with a bigger crew and a brand new powerful second dredge. This year, they’re determined to claim the pile of gold they know lies on bedrock beneath the creek bed. But with such unpredictable conditions, and pressed up against the clock, anything could happen.

         Most of the crew from last year is back including retired Marine Sgt. Carlos Minor, who is desperate for gold in order to help his young family. Texan brothers Wes and Paul Richardson also return with the vital job of maintaining the equipment that could break down at any moment. Also, greenhorn Rich Webster and Arizona miner Casey Morgan have joined the crew with big hopes of finding millions-worth of gold. The pressure is on. But can the Dakota Boys and their team of miners tame the wilderness, strike gold and make it out unscathed?
