Emily Riedel previews ‘Bering Sea Gold’ season 4, dredging, opera and life after Zeke Tenhoff

Discovery Channel’s Being Sea Gold returns for the fourth season and Emily Riedel, the first and only female dredge owner, talked with Dispatch Radio about the show, what fans can expect and explores some of the behind-the-scenes drama which impacts the show.

Emily Riedel portraitEmily’s father Steve is reeling at the end of season 3 while Emily is dealing with the loss of John Bunce who committed suicide and parting ways with longtime friend, sometimes boyfriend, Zeke Tenhoff. She talks openingly and honestly about these issues, how it effects her and how she moves forward.

Bering Sea Gold is filmed in Nome, Alaska during some harsh conditions from the creators of Deadliest Catch. The team are gold mining during the summertime, but still face choppy seas, poor underwater visibility, inconsistent fuel delivery, personnel issues, mining location rights, sufficient paydirt discovery, diver safety, and ocean-damaging equipment failures.

Emily details how that’s a lot to juggle and maintain as the skipper of her own boat.

She also touches on her aspirations to be an opera singer, what it was like in New York and how that fits in with her career dredging.

Check out the full interview below.

Being Sea Gold begins on August 22 at 9 PM E/P on the Discovery Channel

Full Synopsis from Discovery Channel:

In the frontier town of Nome, Alaska, there’s a gold rush on. But you’ve never seen gold mining like this before — here, the precious metal isn’t found in the ground. It’s sitting in the most unlikely of places: the bottom of the frigid, unpredictable Bering Sea. And there are a handful of people willing to risk it all to bring it to the surface.

For two million years, glaciers have been melting into the Bering Sea and depositing sediments rich with gold into its waters. As Nome’s ice pack melts during the summer, the isolated, ramshackle town of eccentrics and outcasts booms with excitement as pioneer gold seekers rush to get out onto the water. Miners dive and dredge to scour the bottom of the sea from custom built, barely seaworthy rigs — in a race to haul in as much gold as possible before the waters become too frigid to dive.

Bering Sea Gold illustrates a world like none seen before — one where the danger is palpable and the stakes are high. Success in the waters will give the dredgers the hope and means to continue — and maybe even make them rich. Failure could yield a vast array of consequences — from possible jail time to injury and even death.
