In Nome, Alaska, the summer gold mining season roars to life – and it’s the richest yet.
The miners are using new strategies, locations and equipment upgrades to get the most gold that has ever been taken out of the Bering Sea. Captain Shawn Pomrenke – the man they call ‘Mr Gold’ – is looking to stay on top of Nome’s gold-mining heap. He hopes for a strong showing, needing capital to construct his multi-million-dollar mega-dredge.
But, he’s feeling the pressure from Kenn Kerr and business partner Dave Young’s 600-tonne Myrtle Irene, which dwarfs everything currently on the water.
Meanwhile, Emily Riedel fights to reclaim her position; with the elements against her she risks losing her entire dredge forever. And, coming off their best season ever, the Kellys return to the promising ground at The Bluff.
Armed with a new attitude, Kris is set to dominate. Time will tell whose approach will reap the biggest reward and land them at the top.
