Gold Rush: Alaska

DISCOVERY CHANNEL – Thursdays from 9 June, 7.30

This series follows six men who, in the face of an economic meltdown, risk their families, their dignity and in some cases their lives, to strike it rich mining for gold in the wilds of Alaska. Inspired by his father Jack, Todd Hoffman leads a group of greenhorn miners to forge a new frontier and save their families from dire straits. While leasing a gold claim in Alaska, Todd and his company of newbies face the grandeur of Alaska as well as its hardships, including an impending winter that will halt operations and the opportunity to strike gold. In an effort to keep the operation running, the team takes fate into their own hands with a make or break venture that will change their lives forever.
