Gold miners are fighting for their survival when “Gold Rush” premieres for its 13th season on Friday, September 30 at 8 PM ET/PT and streaming on discovery+ the same day. As new miners flood the gold fields, the harsh reality of soaring fuel prices, supply chain issues and the price of gold being down plague mining operations. There’s no room for error as competition increases for the best land with the most gold and the Old Guard of gold miners are forced to adapt and prove they still have what it takes. But can they?
In a race between the Greenhorns and the Old Guard, who will come out on top? All Gold miners are pushed to their limits. Only the smartest will prevail during these troubling times and hit a big pay day, while others fold and are sent packing.
In this season of “Gold Rush,” 27-year-old Parker Schnabel, now in his ninth season in the Klondike is out to continue his rise to the top. He confronts the challenges head on, as he tries to mine more gold in the Klondike than ever before while chasing his dream of expanding his operation from the Klondike to Alaska. Klondike Kingpin, Tony Beets faces all new challenges this season. Against stacked odds, he puts it all on the line including his children’s inheritance to mine the White Channel, the oldest gold deposit in the Klondike.
Will this risky strategy deliver enough gold to make the costs worthwhile? Now in his third year and out to prove he can strike it rich, former Green Beret Fred Lewis puts his house on the line and heads north to his remote claim on California Creek. But when he finds it blanketed in snow and covered in 30 feet of ice, all his plans are thrown up in the air. Young Guns Brandon and Brady Clayton join the “Gold Rush” line up. Their family is in debt and their hand-to-mouth operation needs every grain of gold they can find to allow them to mine the Golden Acres they’ve discovered, where the gold is twice as rich as the rest of the Klondike.
Also returning this year is popular “Gold Rush” after show, “The Dirt”, on November 11 at 10PM ET/PT.
Host and “Gold Rush” expert, Christo Doyle, returns for an all-new season where he will drill down into the best behind-the-scenes “Gold Rush” moments and go out to the claims to get the inside scoop from the gold miners themselves. The gloves come off and nothing is left on the table as the miners tell all and reveal new insight and unexpected moments when the cameras weren’t rolling.
