As the Klondike winter comes to an end, a new mining season begins. And this year the tables have certainly turned. There are bold, new challenges, new equipment and massive power shifts. It s a battle like never before among the crews as they push to find the most gold yet. Gold mining is a dangerous business and you never know who is going to come out on top. Last season, Todd Hoffman rose from the ashes and brought his crew back from the brink of bankruptcy. This season he has gold-rich ground, a seasoned crew and is in a position to keep his hot streak alive. Meanwhile, Parker Schnabel has his hands full; last year he mined an unprecedented $3 million dollars of gold. This year he finds out the hard way that one season of gold mining has nothing to do with the next. Parker has to do more than find a lot of gold this year; he has to figure out how to become a leader of men. Season 6 of 'Gold Rush' is full of shocking twists and far more gold than our miners have ever seen before. The question is... who is going to be the big winner?
