Storyline

Yukon Gold follows four gold mining crews who have only four short months in Canada's wild Yukon to earn one BIG payday. With the price of gold hovering at record-breaking levels, a modern day gold rush is underway. One good strike makes a man rich - one bad season takes him down for good. Battling mechanical breakdowns, the elements and 18-hour days under the midnight sun, these competitive diehards have gold fever - and it keeps them coming back year after year for another chance to wager it all.

It's not Gold Rush Alaska; but it doesn't suck either
3 June 2013 | by jaspertermeerSee all my reviews

An other spin-off from the Gold Rush series on TV lately. Here we see Canadians and it's fun to see the difference with the Americans of the original series. I gave it a 6 because it lacks originality and I get the idea that the producers cut some corners. Still if you want to see more about the Gold mining industry and some funny friend- and family-relationships under stress in the bug infested north, this IS an option. Much much better than Gold Fathers for example. We see the ever breaking down of big machines and the bush-fixes they come up with. The same we see with the inter-miner-relation ships and of course the highs and lows of the 'catch' or find of the day. Too bad they didn't take some more time to really explore all there is to tell. I got the impression a lot was taken out and the show could have distinguished itself from the rest by going deeper into certain aspects of living in the North.
