What is Bering Sea Gold?
Bering Sea Gold is divided into two seasons which are the summer dredging season and the spring dredging season. It follows boats equipped with various apparatus to achieve gold mining in different climatic environments. Dredgers are tasked with searching for gold in the summer and winter as well as in shallow and deep waters.
In this season, dredging in Alaska will be harder than ever before with snow dumping on the miners faster than they can clear it. After suffering several equipment failures the dredgers will have to think fast if they want to get their hands on the gold.

Where is the adventure reality series filmed?
Unlike most adventure shows, Bering Sea Gold is set in one city and does not explore various locations. It is set on and off the coast of Nome in Alaska featuring its picturesque landscape. Alaska is also home to the hit Discovery show Deadliest Catch.
Nome has a thriving underwater mining industry and the show also receives government subsidies for boosting business within the city. Interestingly, tourism rose by 60% after the debut of Bering Sea Gold with viewers fascinated by the stunning landscape.
