It’s time for gold rush 2017, thanks to Shawn Pomrenke on this season of “Bering Sea Gold”. It’s back to the winter ice-mining season, and it all begins Friday night August 11 on Discovery. Last season, with everyone desperate to find new sources of gold, Mr. Gold spent big on a risky maneuver and lost.
According to Discovery, “Last summer, was a tough season for Shawn Pomrenke, aka Mr. Gold, who was outbid by other miners for the Nome Gold claim. In his quest to grab the reins and lead his father’s company into the future, Shawn staked a claim at the remote, uninhabitable Alaskan badlands known as The Bluff, but will his claim be rejected? If it is, The Bluff will be open to anyone willing to make the arduous trek with a six-inch dredge.”
All you have to do is watch the sneak peek preview clip posted below to understand the euphoria and chaos. It’s winter ice-mining season and after Pomrenke’s failure, he has more motivation, if that’s even possible, to beat the competition.
With livelihoods at stake, Shawn and his crew focus on building a mega-dredge that dwarfs anything on the Bering Sea – a risk that could catapult his operation. Or could sink the entire business before even getting started. When you gamble it all, the payoff can be so alluring you just have to go for it.
With his track record, Shawn Pomrenke is incapable of believing he could go down twice in two seasons. Meanwhile, Kris Kelly is determined to follow Shawn to The Bluff regardless of his shoddy equipment and less than enthused father and brother.
Zeke Tenhoff and Emily Riedel had success mining Hastings Creek last summer. Since then, Zeke cut ties with Emily, but until Zeke proves that there’s enough gold there to file an official claim, Hastings is open ground, waiting for whomever wants to race for the gold.
Determined to finally have a successful season at the helm, Emily hires two veteran divers who must get out to Hastings coordinates before Zeke. And if Hastings Creek is a bust, Zeke and Emily can always trek out to the rumored motherlode at The Bluff.
