Bering Sea Gold Season 7
With the 2016 ice-mining season underway, a modern-day gold rush sparks in Nome, Alaska, when Shawn Pomrenke AKA "Mr. Gold" offers the gold mining fleet access to his 160-acre claim of untouched Bering Sea floor. Rumored to contain millions of dollars in gold, the miners risk everything to try their luck on the untapped terrain. But access comes at a price.
Coming off a colossal 2.2 million dollar summer, Shawn Pomrenke looks toward the future and sees an empire. He just needs to build it. This season, instead of dredging, Shawn preps for a huge summer, expanding his inland operation and constructing a mega-dredge that will dwarf the Christine Rose. And while Shawn works to build the Pomrenke Empire, so does the rest of the fleet. While they're allowed to dredge Shawn's virgin Claim 38, they must hand over 20% of their gold and, most importantly, valuable GPS coordinates. This means when the ice thaws and Shawn's new mega dredge hits the water, he can get on the gold immediately.
