Gold Rush: White Water (Discovery Channel) – Premieres 19th January – Renewed
Gold hunting shenanigans that is a spin-off from Gold Rush. This follows the Dakota Boys, father and son team of Fred and Dustin Hurt, as they attempt to extract gold from precarious ravines in Alaska.
Returning to a site on McKinley Creek, the pair find that all their equipment has been washed away, and the river has become too dangerous to work on. This leads to Fred having to get into contact with his old mining rival Todd Hoffman to get a loan.
After securing the money Fred gets the crew together where they search the river and find a new site to focus on. Then when it’s found they begin to work the area to get it ready for some prospecting.
For a gold hunting programme it does the job and is a passable way to burn through 45 minutes, though it’s no where near as interesting as Devil’s Canyon. Though if you like Gold Rush, this is more of the same.
