Many watched the season premiere of Discovery Channel's Gold Rush on October 26 to look for a special code to be entered in a special Gold Rush Giveaway for a $100,000 prize.

On Friday night at 9/8c, Discovery Channel premiered the third season of Gold Rush. The show follows Jack and Todd Hoffman and other gold diggers as they use heavy equipment to try to search for gold to help support their families in this unstable economy.

As part of the premiere, Discovery Channel wanted to give fans a chance of their own to strike gold, without having to do the tiring work. They hosted the "Gold Rush Strike Gold Sweepstakes" with a grand prize of $100,000. All fans had to do was watch the live premiere of the show, where a special entry code was revealed twice.
