As Gold Rush: White Water’s debut season continues, the Dakota Boys and their crew begin their mining efforts on a high note by striking gold in record time!

Last week, Discovery Channel struck gold once again when the series premiere of Gold Rush: White Water became the network’s most-watched series premiere since the debut of fellow spinoff Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail as an impressive 2.27 million viewers tuned in to watch the Dakota Boys make their triumphant return! Not only did the latest Gold Rush spinoff deliver Discovery’s best premiere numbers since the debut of Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail, but it also managed to rank as Friday night’s No. 2 cable telecast in Men 25-54 and Men 18-49 coming only behind Gold Rush.

It’s only fitting that after helping Discovery Channel to strike gold with its stellar ratings, the Dakota Boys and their team’s mining begins on a high note as well.

When we catch up with Fred, Dustin and the rest of the team come together to test the soil via a small test pan. With everyone gathered around a small bucket of water, Fred begins to swirl the pan around while giving his team’s greenest recruit a lesson in the art.

As they sift through the soil, the team are greeted with a pleasant surprise that has them ever more hopeful for what lies in store!
