-- -- -- seen the commercials for this month and a fox for one want to live we appreciate you joining us some Juliette Heidi it is 230 on the East Coast to 31 skis yeah these guys.
And what you're watching -- was a clip.
From brand -- so.
On Discovery Channel it's called Bering -- gold under the case.
You don't give you heard the -- Tom Beers he's the guy who brought.
-- Deadliest Catch on discovery and this is the guy that also came up with this new series.
-- there was essentially like a gold mine literally feet below the ice up there in Alaska Nome Alaska specifically.
But there is our next guest -- -- one several trying to hit.
The jackpot now I don't know what happened on that we -- have to make sure that enemy watch this show bits of joining us right now as he cannot.
He's a -- good to see is -- I -- a -- and that's wonderful also you got -- pretty excited to show premiering tomorrow night.
Yeah that's that's that's always exciting you know there's -- -- in -- -- -- gnome and it's a small town and everybody's watching the shows them now have you ever done any television before anything like this for far.
No well I was gonna Bering -- -- last season soul less this should their show that was about last summer.
And this is -- that that's it right so this is that this is a series so let's talk about this thing I think it's surprising to a lot of folks that.
There is actually gold and possibly gold mine under the ice -- -- a little bit about that why -- why why is it that people don't seem to understand that.
-- have any information about that.
There that all that's the ocean front and on it's it's it's a really unique place there there is.
Anywhere anywhere any or anything like -- The gold that there's just been a ton of all the cost out of the mountain just came out in the sand and -- -- -- can't.
And but nothing really compares to it and it's really unique and there aren't very many people that -- gold appears so not many people know about it for a long time.
Tell us about the miners.
What kind of training what kind of skills you need to have.
Well most of people that are -- up your mind in the ocean don't really have a lot of specific training.
But it just takes it takes big adventure spirit and it takes.
-- it takes a desire to suffer for gold and work really hard in all kinds of conditions.
Now the other clip that we just saw there it looked like our you know look like you were flipping over some stuff that -- -- potentially -- sitting -- right before you picked out the next thing we see is a line is blind.
How how dangerous is this job for you.
Locally I -- not to think about it the danger in all its.
He's got a condition yourself to be comfortable of a certain amount of danger and if you're gonna go under the ice if you're gonna -- undervalues.
On you're taking your life in your own hands so.
Is dangerous -- when -- a little ice you just have to be constantly aware.
There might have to swim up to your whole -- in time you know that's your lifeline.
And if you can't smoke your -- you're gonna ground so you -- be prepared to swim up all at any point on it's dangerous but.
You know we we try to get used to it.
Give me an example of some of the dangers I mean besides I got blown line when you're down there what are some of the dangers.
Yes the regulator that you breed an error out of regulator that's on the -- often freezes so you can lose area and a big moment.
So when when you're when you're under the ice.
Can't -- -- -- to get more -- you have to be prepared.
To lose area and time on hypothermia if you're.
Something that could happen.
At any time because there's -- the -- -- you're guiding her to below freezing.
And if if -- if you're that you could start getting cold it's likely you'll get hypothermia really quickly get a lot of different ways.
-- -- I'm sure the people that that that love you love hearing that -- -- a little bit about the people that surround you some of the other miners that you're working with how do you know them who are today.
-- are -- on he.
On the red -- C gold under the ice.
The -- Gator guys.
There they're all because I've known for -- the better part of my life.
You know I've -- a look grown up period and -- and job armory keying and his friend I've -- those guys through a good while and then the people I work with I'm working with old and we try to undermine their knowledge but yet we're all kind of look at big -- -- here really it did this small town everybody knows each other.
So what will we all have each other acts.
What tell what's what's an average mining expedition like take us through it so you're you're on a boat obviously gets an area that you decide you know under the ice is where you wanna go.
And then what.
Well did you know you bring whatever you whoever you -- -- out of -- leaders as the cancer -- -- -- and you need do you you gotta be holes.
In icu and I've got to dig dig those holes -- chain -- their -- or whatever.
-- millionaire -- Some uphold that I would walk out of there out of the out of Geithner you cut debate -- if you -- need to -- that -- Out under the surface.
But he can get into a hole and -- -- and -- failure quickness on the on the whole but you can dive into it which -- suction -- your goal.
And then you -- -- down there and try to suck up as much schools you can hear go vacuum that you're dredge I can't spend senators whose ox.
Here's here's the question of the day of course you know what's -- -- so what kind of money are we talking here what kind of gold gold mine are we talking here.
-- and there's potential to make millions of dollars down there were girls very aware of it you know -- We -- -- -- under development dollars when we do it.
You know it remains to be seen.
You know he -- -- it's not consistent -- you never know there's a huge.
Huge element of gambling.
We all know that we could hit it really base there's millions and millions of dollars were people that they're not ocean we -- -- -- -- report.
Man while I hope it's working -- -- and I wish you the best of luck this is going to be a great series again is called Bering -- gold under the nice.
He's going to know the last over the -- lurking under the water there.
