Bering Sea Gold

Fridays, 10:00 PM ET on Discovery Channel

60 minutes

In the frontier town of Nome, Alaska, there's a gold rush on. But you've never seen gold mining like this before -- here, the precious metal isn't found in the ground. It's sitting in the most unlikely of places: the bottom of the frigid, unpredictable Bering Sea. And there are a handful of people willing to risk it all to bring it to the surface. For two million years, glaciers have been melting into the Bering Sea and depositing sediments rich with gold into its waters. As Nome's ice pack melts during the summer, the isolated, ramshackle town of eccentrics and outcasts booms with excitement, as pioneer gold seekers rush to get out onto the water. Miners dive and dredge to scour the bottom of the sea from custom built, barely seaworthy rigs -- in a race to haul in as much gold as possible before the waters become too frigid to dive.

The premiere episode introduces viewers to four of Nome's gold seekers: The Christine Rose, a huge barge equipped with an excavator arm and run by experienced and successful father and son gold seekers; The Wild Ranger, a converted sailing catamaran beginning its first season run by a rookie captain with an explosive personality and greenhorn deckhands with authority issues; The Clark, operated by two young Alaska natives who have been friends since childhood, one of which has serious hospital bills to pay, and the other a greenhorn diver trying to get to opera school in Vienna; and The Sluicey, a small, barely-seaworthy vessel built and operated by a former social worker whose season is already off to a terrible start. The one thing they all have in common? The real –and sometimes desperate — need to find gold to support their very existence.
