Plot Synopsis

In this one-hour reality series, GOLD RUSH's Dakota Boys -- Dakota Fred and his son Dustin -- return to McKinley Creek to dive for millions in gold, deep beneath the raging waters of one of Alaska's wildest creeks. In this series, the boy assemble a team of intrepid divers, mountaineers and bush mechanics to go where no miner has ever managed to explore -- the depths of freezing plunge pools in white water rapids that have only recently become accessible. Nothing will stop these guys -- they'll dive in raging torrents with a six-inch suction dredge where one wrong move could have deadly consequences. Accessing the creek each day takes nerves of steel -- traversing a death defying 400-foot canyon on a precarious zip-wire. But that is not the only danger. The guys will face wild animals, extreme temperatures and hypothermia from the freezing water. But the Dakota boys need to make a serious return on fellow gold miner Todd Hoffman's investment -- and soon.

The sophomore season of GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER premiered on Friday, January 4, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Most of the crew from last year is backing including retired Marine Sgt. Carlos Minor, who is desperate for gold in order to help his young family. Texan brothers Wes and Paul Richardson also return with the vital job of maintaining the equipment that could break down at any moment. Also, greenhorn Rich Webster and Arizona miner Casey Morgan have joined the crew with big hopes of finding millions-worth of gold. In Season 2, Dakota Fred and his son Dustin are mining for nuggets in the raging torrents of glacier-fed McKinley Creek using heated wet suits to dive beneath the freezing plunge pools. But has the father-son duo taken on more than they can handle? The Alaskan wilderness is as brutal as ever -- as they battle against ferocious weather, flash floods, falling boulders and hungry bears. The men also face catastrophic equipment failures in a mad dash to hit the jackpot that could make them millionaires.

Discovery Channel premiered the third season of GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT. This season, for the first time, father and son are separating and running their own crews as they move higher up the mountain - chasing the mother lode and a massive pay day. But the higher up they go, the more dangerous it gets. As they head deeper into the hostile Alaskan wilderness, they'll risk their lives battling hungry bears, falling rocks and boulders, and raging currents, searching for a monster payday. With such a remote location, the teams have to "sling in" all their gear and equipment using a helicopter. Once the final drop is made, the Dakota Boys are on their own - forcing them to engineer radical new methods to lift 1,000-pound boulders, lower their dredges down vertical cliffs and fix catastrophic equipment failures in the middle of nowhere. They're putting it all on the line in the pursuit of giant nuggets and a life-changing jackpot of gold. The pressure is on. But can the Dakota Boys and their team of miners tame the wilderness, strike gold and make it out unscathed?\
