The duo had chased piles and piles of bedrock gold amidst the raging water of McKinley Creek, up until they reached their limit and completely mined out the dive site. With opposing ideas on where to mine next, Fred and Dustin have agreed to split up -- doubling both their chances of striking it rich as well as the danger that comes with mining higher up the mountain.

“I wish Dustin luck, but I wish us better luck,” Fred said.

At 75-years-old, Fred is still quick as ever, filled with the gold-mining wisdom that younger miners crave, but Dustin’s energy and determination give him an equally tactical approach to this year’s mining strategy.

Chasing a massive pay day comes with a new set of costs, as the higher up they go, the more dangerous it gets. Both crews are risking it all to unearth millions in gold, deep within the Alaska wilderness. Can the Dakota Boys and their team of miners really handle the wilderness challenges of Alaska, strike a fortune, and make it out unscathed?

The race is on to uncover more gold than any other season before. GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER returns for its third season on Friday, November 8 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery.

In addition to watching the series on Discovery, viewers can check out new episodes each week on DiscoveryGO. Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #GoldRushWhiteWater and follow Gold Rush on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.
