Bering Sea Gold: Under The Ice - Season 2. Winter Season Premiere!

Article published on November 24, 2013. Written & compiled by admin. A Discovery Communications Production.

Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice follows five teams of men and women diving under the ice of the frozen Bering Sea in their quest for fortune. Unlike the scores of miners depicted on Bering Sea Gold, the winter season will follow the only people tough enough to take on the challenge of dredging for gold during an arctic winter.

The winter season for dredging the Bering Sea’s gold begins when the storms calm and the ice is thick enough to support the miner's dredging equipment. We will follow the unique process of diving under the ice to mine Nome's gold before the summer gold rush arrives. The time is short, only 5 weeks before the ice gets unstable...

The artefacts have tentatively been dated to the 7th or 8th centuries, placing the origin of the items in the time of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia.

Bering Sea Gold - The Complete Season 2. Watch it here!

Article published on November 10, 2013. Written & compiled by admin. A Discovery Communications Production.

In the frontier town of Nome, Alaska, there's a gold rush on. But you've never seen gold mining like this before -- here, the precious metal isn't found in the ground. It's sitting in the most unlikely of places: the bottom of the frigid, unpredictable Bering Sea. And there are a handful of people willing to risk it all to bring it to the surface.
For two million years, glaciers have been melting into the Bering Sea and depositing sediments rich with gold into its waters. As Nome's ice pack melts during the summer, the isolated, ramshackle town of eccentrics and outcasts booms with excitement, as pioneer gold seekers rush to get out onto the water. Miners dive and dredge to scour the bottom of the sea from custom built, barely seaworthy rigs -- in a race to haul in as much gold as possible before the waters become too frigid to dive.
