Discovery's "Gold Rush" Special Available to Fans Online One Week Before Air!

"There isn't one man in America, if he's got anything inside him, who wouldn't want to be here with us." - Jack Hoffman, Gold Miner

Friday night's #1 series GOLD RUSH returns to Discovery Channel on October 28th. But for those who can't wait that long, a fix is just a click away.

Beginning today, October 21st, fans can watch the entire kick-off special "The Off-Season" for free at http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/gold-rush-2011-the-off-season-videos/ - a full week before it premieres on the network (Friday, October 28th at 8PM ET/PT). In this special, fans will find out what the Hoffmans did between mining seasons to make sure they hit the mother lode this time around.

While at the GOLD RUSH site (discovery.com/goldrush), fans can also relive their favorite moments from last season, learn some surprising gold facts, meet the miners or get some words of wisdom from Jack Hoffman (Who can forget: "You're all millionaires. The only thing is, you gotta get it out of the ground."?)

Season two of GOLD RUSH kicks off Friday, October 28th at 9PM ET/PT.

About "The Off-Season":

It's the mining off-season and Todd Hoffman and his father Jack have some big decisions to make. After finding just $20,000 in gold their rookie mining season, they've had to scrape through the winter in Oregon. But the Hoffmans aren't ones to give up. Instead, they decide to double their chances of striking it rich and secure a second mining claim.

Just days before the start of the season, as they pack up to hunt for gold at both Porcupine Creek and Klondike sites, they get some disastrous news: the water license for their Klondike claim - essential to run a mining operation - did not come through. Their dream of a second mine in the Klondike is over before it started. Todd breaks the news to his crew, and they set off to Alaska with only the old Porcupine Creek claim to mine.

About GOLD RUSH:

In Discovery Channel's hit series GOLD RUSH, a group of down-on-their-luck men, in the face of an economic meltdown, risk everything to strike it rich mining for gold in Alaska. Inspired by his father Jack, Todd Hoffman leads the miners - now with one season under their belts - to finish what they started and get to the bottom of the glory hole at Porcupine Creek and findgold.
