About The Show

Living off the grid in the brutal wilderness of Yukon, a group of ambitious miners are in serious pursuit of gold.

With new miners, new claims, new machines and new ways to pull gold out of the ground, the stakes are higher than ever. But will big risks lead to a bigger payout?

The teams have huge, brand new machines which help them achieve the largest goals ever seen on the show. The challenges that lie ahead are numerous, with the team having to work punishing hours around the clock, to keep the machinery in working order.

Their success or failure depends on the friendships that they are able to forge within the community, if they are to stand a chance at all of striking gold.
