Find Out Where Parker is Heading Next on Parker's Trail

By: Discovery

The quest for gold is never over when your name is Parker Schnabel.

February 13, 2020

One gold mining season is not enough for Parker Schnabel. The 25 year old mining prodigy is determined to expand his operation and dig year-round.

As reported on TV Insider, Parker is traveling 8,000 miles to the vast terrains of Australia. The country has produced record-sized nuggets and is thought to be the largest untapped gold reserve in the world.

Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail returns for its fourth season on Friday, March 13 on Discovery.

There’s only one problem. Australia’s landscape is brutal and home to some of the deadliest snakes, saltwater crocodiles, and spiders on the planet. Despite these dangers, Parker intends to start at the historic gold rush trail that started it all in 1851.

The crew this year includes 24-year old gold miner and prospecting expert Tyler Mahoney, a fourth-generation Australian gold miner. Another new member Danny Etheridge takes charge of the camera, and Fred Lewis, former US military medic returns for the second season.

Could this Australian quest for gold change Parker and his crew’s lives forever?

In addition to watching the series on Discovery, new episodes will be available to stream each week on the Discovery GO app. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #ParkersTrail and following Gold Rush on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.
