(Los Angeles) – Gold mining is a risky business – where one wrong move can cost a crew millions of dollars. As another Klondike winter thaws, this season the miners will take on even greater risks in hopes of finding more gold than ever before. But not every gamble always pans out with massive profits. Discovery’s #1-rated show GOLD RUSH returns for its seventh season on Friday, October 14,at 9 PM ET/PT.

Returning from a record-breaking gold mining season is 21-year-old miner Parker Schnabel. It’s a sad start for Parker after losing his beloved grandfather and mentor John Schnabel. Parker’s leadership will be tested more than ever as he navigates the many changes in his life. This year, he makes the biggest investment in the history of his operation by ordering a customized $600,000 washplant. But will it be enough to beat out his archrival Todd Hoffman? With a new girlfriend from Australia, Ashley Yule, joining him in the Klondike, it will be a season like no other for Parker. His gold mining plan is to go lean and mean in an attempt to make his biggest profit yet.

Meanwhile, Todd Hoffman takes the biggest gamble of his life, turning his back on the Klondike and moving his entire operation to Oregon. Todd is on a quest for huge nuggets at the High Bar mine, located high up in the mountains. It’s a bold move – with Todd so confident that he sets an ambitious 5,000 ounce goal – more than 2,000 ounces than his best-ever total. But with the first Oregon clean ups way below expectations, Todd begins to wonder if he’s made a massive mistake. Could this season mark the end of the Hoffman crew?

Legendary Klondike miner Tony Beets, aka “The Viking,” is back and doubling down by investing $2 million in resurrecting a second historic gold dredge – twice as big as his first.  Last year, people thought he was crazy for investing in his first ancient dredge. But Tony is hoping that once again he can accomplish the impossible. But first, he must transport the 75-year-old abandoned dredge from a remote spot 150 miles down-river. He’ll need his family to step up to the plate and run the rest of his gold-mining empire. But when his first dredge sinks within days, Tony’s son, Kevin, finds himself in his father’s firing line.

In advance of the new season of GOLD RUSH, beginning September 14, Discovery viewers can binge on prior seasons with Discovery GO, the network’s live and on demand TV Everywhere streaming service, and through TV providers – free with their subscription.
