HIT SERIES "GOLD RUSH: PARKER'S TRAIL" TRAVELS TO PAPUA NEW GUINEA FOR THIRD SEASON ON DISCOVERY

'GOLD RUSH: PARKER'S TRAIL' Returns Friday, April 5 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery

(LOS ANGELES) - Gold miner Parker Schnabel and his team of friends are about to embark on their biggest adventure yet: they're heading deep into the tropical highlands of Papua New Guinea in search of gold. Finding it will prove more challenging than anyone ever imagined. 'GOLD RUSH: PARKER'S TRAIL' returns for a third season on Friday, April 5 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery. The hit series returns after a successful launch in 2017 as the year's #1 new unscripted cable series in M25-54, and double-digit ratings growth in its second season.

Last year, fans watched Parker and his friends head into the jungles of Guyana in search of the legendary "El Dorado" or "Mountain of Gold," where the risks soon outweighed the riches after getting caught up in local unrest. Has Parker learned from this previous experience?

There's two reasons Parker is now going to Papua New Guinea: The first is to try to find the motherlode without any million-dollar mining equipment, in what's considered one of the toughest, untapped, gold rich environments in the world. The second is personal: He wants to reconnect with his Grandpa John's war history.

John Schnabel served in the South Pacific while in the Air Force during World War II. He mentored and shared much of his life story and wisdom with young Parker, but divulged little about his wartime experiences. After Pearl Harbor, when John was 24 years old (Parker's exact age today), he enlisted as a Navy aircraft mechanic, helping the Allied Forces take the fight to the Japanese and change the tide of the war. Parker sees this expedition as an opportunity to gain insight into grandpa John's past, while he learns to mine with tribes in their diverse territories.

This year, Parker will again be joined by survival expert and wilderness guide Karla Ann as well as long-time friend and adventure cameraman Sam Brown, who is responsible for filming much of their epic adventure. New to the team is Special Forces Medic Fred Lewis. He has the military and medical experience to help keep the team alive.

Parker and his team will venture off-grid to learn the local mining techniques making Papua New Guinea's 21st Century gold rush thrive. The odds are stacked against them as they face volcanic mountain ranges, flashfloods, landslides and some volatile tribesmen. Can Parker and his team survive against the elements and still find gold? One thing is certain: They will need to overcome a huge amount of adversity if they are to succeed in the jungles of Papua New Guinea.

GOLD RUSH: PARKER'S TRAIL is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw Television, where Dimitri Doganis, Sam Maynard and Craig Blackhurst are Executive Producers, Ceri Smith Production Executive. For Discovery Channel, Matt Vafiadis and Joseph Boyle are Executive Producers and Jessica Mollo is Associate Producer.
