This season, the miners are taking even greater risks in hopes of finding more gold than ever before. Twenty-one-year-old Parker Schnabel returns and plans to go lean and mean in an attempt to make his biggest profit yet. Meanwhile, Todd Hoffman takes the biggest gamble of his life, turning his back on the Klondike and moving his entire operation to Oregon. Todd is on a quest for huge nuggets at the High Bar mine. It’s a bold move – with Todd so confident that he sets an ambitious 5,000 ounce goal – more than 2,000 ounces than his best-ever total.  And finally “The Viking” Tony Beets is back and doubling down by investing $2 million in resurrecting a second historic gold dredge – twice as big as his first.

Just how much gold will the crews rake in?  Watch each week and try your luck for a chance to take a portion of the tally.
