In the frontier town of Nome, Alaska, there's a gold rush on...
As the ice pack melts during the summer months, the isolated port town of Nome, Alaska populated by eccentrics and outcasts booms with excitement, as pioneer dredgers rush to get out onto the water in custom built, barely seaworthy rigs.
The precious metal they seek isn t found in the ground it s sitting on the bottom of the frigid, unpredictable Bering Sea. From the Emmy Award-winning creator of Deadliest Catch, this incredible series follows three mining teams run by dredge captains whose very livelihoods depend on mining this wet and frozen gold.
The risks are great, but the payoff could be even greater. And these dredgers are willing to gamble.
