About

This year, the rivalry among the miners has reached new levels. But will they be able to put their money where their mouth is? Before the new mining season even kicks off, gold miner Todd Hoffman lays everything on the line and wagers a massive bet with 22-year-old Parker Schnabel. The ever-confident Todd believes he can pull in the most gold this season. If not, he owes Parker 100 ounces of gold worth over $100,000 dollars. This sets off a head-to-head competition for the season between these two rivals. It’s a bold move for Todd, especially after last year’s disaster. Todd’s 5,000-ounce goal was shattered in Oregon, where he began last season, and his crew went into a meltdown. This season, Todd and his crew are in Colorado where he is joined by his father, Jack, and 18-year-old son Hunter. This year, Todd believes that he’ll be the ultimate mine boss by running three plants at the same time – a challenge no gold miner has ever pulled off in the series. Meanwhile, Hunter demands a promotion and wants to run his own operation. But will he be able to handle the pressure? In the Klondike, young Parker Schnabel meets with his long-time, dedicated crew and fills them in on the wager with the Hoffmans. However, this isn’t the only battle for Parker. He’s going to war on two fronts – not just with Todd, but his landlord Tony Beets, aka “TheViking.” Over four years, Tony has taken $2.3 million in royalties. This season, Parker has a plan to buy his freedom with a deal on new virgin ground. Parker doesn’t underestimate anyone as he knows mining is as much about perseverance as it is about luck. But first Parker needs to get his ice-bound wash plant Big Red up and running – since every day not sluicing gives Todd and Tony a head start in the race for gold.
