Discovery takes ‘Gold Rush’ to the ‘Devil’s Canyon’ in new series

Channel Guide Contributor

Gold Rush fans will love Devil’s Canyon, Discovery’s newest series that goes deep into British Columbia, where there is an actual gold rush happening (like for real) in an area known as Devil’s Canyon. Apparently, hundreds of millions of dollars in gold are waiting for anyone who is willing to risk their life to get it. (Yeah, we are on our way now.)

Gold miners Boyce Goff, Ben van der Valk and John Belcik separately venture deep into the forest, past where big mining companies can reach, in search of the next big pay streak. No roads, no trails, no camera crew (isn’t this a TV show?), no help. A good formula for good TV. They must pack in everything they need to mine and survive in the cruel wilderness of Devil’s Canyon.

Alone for weeks, and self-documenting their experiences, the three men are caught in a tug-of-war between searching for gold and doing whatever it takes to survive. With the threat of winter quickly approaching, Ben, John and Boyce must decide on how far they are willing to push themselves in this canyon that has claimed the lives of thousands of men before them. It’s man vs. nature in one of the harshest environments on Earth, all for the chance to steal the Devil’s gold.
