‘Gold Rush’ Returns to Discovery Channel Tomorrow

October 16, 2014 | by lstewart

The wait is almost over! The fifth season of Gold Rush premieres tomorrow, October 17th on Discovery Channel at 9PM ET/PT.

This season, the stakes are higher than ever. After braving the jungles of Guyana, South America, Todd Hoffman is back after losing his land, his crew and most of his money. Meanwhile, Parker Schnabel has set an outrageous goal for himself, looking to double the 1,000 ounces of gold that he brought in last season – worth 1.4 million dollars – to 2,000 ounces this time around. Tony Beets has his own challenges ahead, as he took a huge risk by purchasing a $1 million, 75-year-old floating gold dredge.

It’s a new season with new beginnings. Check out a sneak peek of the season premiere of Gold Rush below, and don’t miss tomorrow night’s premiere!

Gold Rush Season FourFans of Discovery’s Gold Rush can rejoice – the series is back for a fourth season, premiering Friday at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery. This season, Todd Hoffman has made the decision not to return to the Klondike as he and his crew head to warmer climates to find gold in the Guyana jungle. Meanwhile, Parker Schnable is doing “what Todd Hoffman couldn’t”, as he pushes into the Yukon to strike gold. The Dakota boys are back in Alaska, ready to hit the big time as they continue their three-year search for gold.

Fans can also get in on the action and enter for their chance to hit the mother lode through the Go for Gold Sweeps for the chance to win $100,000. Watch the premiere of Gold Rush on Friday, October 25 at 9PM ET/PT for the code to enter. If you can’t wait until Friday, check out a sneak peek of the upcoming season below:


Strike Gold This Friday on Discovery Channel

This Friday, the Gold Rush crews return to Discovery Channel for their third season of trying to strike it rich — and this season, one of them does. The stakes are higher as Todd doubles down on two claims he is, quite literally, banking everything on, while Dakota Fred’s glory hole may contain millions in gold.

Before the premiere, tune in at 7:30pm ET/PT for Gold Rush: Do or Die to find out what’s happened since the miners went home after the second season. The Gold Rush guys will be tweeting live and some of their tweets will appear during the episode. You also can tweet live with the #GoldRush hashtag during the episode and you might see your Tweet live on air as we count down to the season premiere at 9pm ET/PT.

Later, two rookie American gold miners head to Ghana to tap into the potential multi-million dollar gold claims buried in the dense jungles there on the premiere of Jungle Gold. While worrying about cold weather isn’t a factor in Ghana, mining is the easy part in this region, as the high stakes of the gold trade result in dangerous conditions amongst the miners.

Welcome to the Jungle

August 17, 2012 | by kdelmonico

The Gold Rush guys are back, and this time it’s a jungle out there. On Friday’s special episode, Gold Rush: The Jungle, the crew heads to the jungles of Guyana in South America in the hopes of striking gold. The country produces 400,000 ounces of gold a year legally, and with production estimates being potentially twice that, the miners are trying to grab their piece of the pie. While the jungle provides a respite from some of the challenges the crew faced in Alaska, snakes, torrential downpours, shady business dealings and more may not be a good trade.

Check out a sneak peek of Gold Rush: The Jungle, Friday on Discovery Channel at 9pm ET/PT. Stay tuned after the episode for The Aftershow, an in-depth discussion between the miners and Executive Producer, Christo Doyle.
