DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, August 2018) It's a new beginning for GOLD RUSH - new miners, new rivalries and brand-new claims. This season, the miners will stop at nothing as they risk it all in pursuit of the American Dream. But who will come out on top? Discovery's #1-rated show GOLD RUSH returns for its ninth season on Friday, October 12 at 9 PM ET/PT. This year, Rick Ness has decided to step it up and become a mine boss with a claim of his own. He's seen it all - and put in the grunt work - after working six years under fellow miner Parker Schnabel. Rick cashes in his life savings and literally puts everything on the line. But is he ready? In the off-season, Rick spent most of his time nursing his mother until she passed away. As a result, he's far behind the others as they race into the mining season. But that isn't his only uphill battle. Rick has recruited a crew of his Wisconsin buddies, who leave behind their jobs, families and homes, to take a chance on of striking it rich. But only time will tell if his dad's prediction will come true that "he'll come home broke with no friends." The stakes don't come much higher this year for Rick. While gold miner and rival Todd Hoffman is out, things aren't any easier for 23-year-old Parker Schnabel. As the new season kicks off, Parker finds himself in a land war with legendary Klondike miner Tony Beets. Parker's initial plan was to return to Tony's ground - the richest he's ever mined - and deliver more than 6,000 ounces of gold worth $7.2 million dollars. But things go south when he tries to negotiate a royalty rate and must move to another claim. The plan doesn't sit well for Tony - who could lose millions - and he's determined to teach young Parker a lesson. It's a tough start for Parker - especially without having Rick or his long-term girlfriend Ashley by his side. Meanwhile, legendary Klondike miner Tony Beets has a masterplan this year - to get the two ancient dredges mining and turning around some major profit. And he's determined that nobody, especially Parker, will get in his way. Tony's also looking ahead at his kids' future and is doubling down on everything this year including dredges, barges and gold. He's also not afraid of a good challenge - and has vowed to match Parker's lofty $72 million season goal. And if one thing is certain - he'll run as many wash plants as it takes to ensure he beats his young rival.
