Yukon Gold, HISTORY’s number one Canadian documentary series of 2013, begins production on season two this month. Produced by Paperny Entertainment, this original series tracks four mining crews on a modern day gold rush as they scour “The Land of the Midnight Sun” hoping to strike it rich.

“I am proud and delighted that so many viewers across Canada have become fans of the tough and tenacious gold miners in our series,” says David Paperny, President, Paperny Entertainment.


Remote film crews will be on hand from the beginning of July until the season freeze-up in early October to capture Season One favourites “Big” Al McGregor, Bernie Kreft, best friends Ken Foy and Guillaume Brodeur, and Karl Knutson as they battle mechanical breakdowns, the elements and 18-hour days.


Yukon Gold is executive produced by David Paperny, Cal Schumiatcher and Audrey Mehler and is scheduled to premiere on HISTORY in spring, 2014.
