Discovery Channel announced “Bering Sea Gold” returns with a new season on August 26th. “With the 2016 ice-mining season underway, a modern-day gold rush sparks in Nome, Alaska, when Shawn Pomrenke AKA “Mr. Gold” offers the gold mining fleet access to his 160-acre claim of untouched Bering Sea floor. Rumored to contain millions of dollars in gold, the miners risk everything to try their luck on the untapped terrain,” according to a Discovery Channel press release.
Shawn Pomrenke looks at the future and sets his sights on building an empire. Coming off a massive $2.2 million summer, Shawn prepares for another huge summer “expanding his inland operation and constructing a mega-dredge that will dwarf the Christine Rose,” says the press release.
In the upcoming season Zeke Tenhoff also returns and continues his unlikely partnership with Emily Riedel. With big dreams and high hopes, this season for Vernon Adkison “represents his best and possibly final chance to make it as a gold miner.”
The new season of “Bering Seas Gold,” premieres Friday, August 26th at 9pm ET on the Discovery Channel.
