The Discovery Channel has a big surprise for Gold Rush fans. Season 12 is coming out soon. Thanks to the pandemic, gold is at the highest it has ever been. That means the competition is high! Could this mean that the rivalries are more fierce?
Who is coming back, and what should fans expect in the upcoming season of Gold Rush?
When Does Gold Rush Season 12 Start?
On Friday, Discovery announced on Twitter that Gold Rush Season 12 is starting on September 24. This is nearly a month earlier than normal. Normally, the gold mining show starts in mid-October, in Fall. However, it seems that with four teams, they want to get a head start.
Who can blame the network? Gold is sky-high, close to $2,000 an ounce. That means that the profits can reach incredible heights. Moreover, this also means that the pressure is higher. They need to get to the gold and get it fast. There is no time to second guess any decisions.
Who Is Back For Gold Rush Season 12?
The big three are back for Gold Rush Season 12. The 27-year-old Parker Schnabel is ready to beat his previous records. However, his biggest problem is that he has run out of land. He has mined out his claims.
Could a narrow pay streak be rich with pay? He needs to gamble millions of dollars to dig 50 feet down below. Will there be gold?
In addition, Tony Beets and his family of gold miners are ready to tackle the Yukon. You don’t call Tony the King of the Klondike for nothing. He has spent $5 million on more equipment. Does more equipment mean bigger results?
Tony loves the big machines. He believes that is the secret to his success. Now that he is reopening his Indian River claim, and mining Paradise Hill, he is putting everything on the line.
But, there is a hitch in his plans. Tony needs a water license at Indian River. Fans of Gold Rush know that there is a huge local issue with water licenses. Will this important document cause delays?
Lastly, Rick Ness is also back, ready to show that he can compete with the other two. He is starting early, and ready to make it happen. However, he lost two crew members. Does this mean that his season will suffer?
Rick Ness will bring someone special this year. His girlfriend, Leese M. Arie, is coming along to help out. There is no information on whether she will be on camera along with the Ness Team.
