TORONTO (February 3, 2017) – It’s a new year with a new business partnership and challenging mining site that puts Claudia and Robin Bunce’s jade mining expertise to the test in an all-new season of JADE FEVER. Over a six-week period, viewers across Canada can catch a double dose of the Bunce’s exciting, high-stake search with weekly back-to-back episodes of JADE FEVER airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. PT beginning March 7 on Discovery. Season 3 of the original Canadian series follows the intense adventures of the Bunce family as they gamble in search of million-dollar boulders of jade in Northern B.C.’s Cassiar Mountains.

(L- R:)  Claudia Bunce and Mike Mee examine jade; Robin and Claudia Bunce, eager on the mining site; and Justin Bunce and Mike Mee prepare to excavate jade.

With the same dreams and passionate ambitions driving the past two seasons, Season 3 of JADE FEVER gets off to a promising start when the Bunce family builds a new partnership with Peter Niu, eager to mine fresh jade claims near Wolverine camp. But with boulder after boulder ending in failure, the partnership quickly starts to crumble. The adversity continues when Claudia and Robin learn that part of their campsite is sitting on someone else’s claim, scrambling the Bunce family to activate other claims. Hardship after hardship, the mining season appears to be over, until son Justin and his friend, Mike Mee, come up with a strategy to finish the season off strong. With shifts doubled up and work continuing under lights during the dead of night, it’s a desperate race against time to save the jade mining season.

In its Season 2 debut, JADE FEVER reached a total of six million viewers and achieved a 45% increase in total viewers year over year.  During its 10 p.m. ET and 10:30 p.m. ET premiere airings, Discovery was the #2 entertainment specialty channel among all key adult demographics.

Episode highlights from Season 3 of JADE FEVER:

“Hard Climb”

Tuesday, March 7 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT

It’s a new year and Claudia Bunce has a new partner for the season, Peter Niu. The partners are finally able to finalize a deal which will allow them to mine a new site near their camp at Wolverine. The new jade camp is located up a long trail to the mountain, making for a bone-jarring climb. Claudia’s patience is tested as, for the first time, she’s in the driver’s seat of a 60-ton rock truck heading up the treacherous trek. And if the journey wasn’t stressful enough, one of the excavators catches fire.

“Breakdowns and Meltdowns”

Tuesday, March 7 at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT

The Bunces struggle to lead their crew and equipment across rivers and over boulder-strewn paths to reach their jade camp at Wolverine. On the trip, Claudia has a meltdown while driving the rock truck. Meanwhile, crew member Gary runs out of gas and finds himself stranded in the middle of nowhere.

“Digging In”

Tuesday, March 14 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT

The Bunces set up a new mining camp in hopes of impressing their urbanite business partners. At the same time, tempers soar when Claudia and Robin clash with their son Josh while unloading some platforms. Later, the first few days of mining don’t offer much hope for the rest of the season until crew member Guy Marital makes a stunning discovery. Then, Marital struggles to make it into the Wolverine camp with the excavator.

“Cutting Crew”

Tuesday, March 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT

The first boulder of the season proves challenging to get back to camp. Once the Bunces and their crew finally get it there, Claudia and her new partners disagree on the best way to cut it. Later, Robin and his newly first aid-trained son Josh clash over camp safety procedures. But when Claudia injures herself, Josh springs into action.
