It’s a new year with a new business partnership and challenging mining site that puts Claudia and Robin Bunce’s jade mining expertise to the test in an all-new season of Jade Fever.
The new episodes are airing Tuesdays at 10pm and 10:30pm beginning March 7th on Discovery. Season 3 of the original Canadian series follows the intense adventures of the Bunce family as they gamble in search of million-dollar boulders of jade in Northern B.C.’s Cassiar Mountains.
With the same dreams and passionate ambitions driving the past two seasons, Season 3 of Jade Fever gets off to a promising start when the Bunce family builds a new partnership with Peter Niu, eager to mine fresh jade claims near Wolverine camp. But with boulder after boulder ending in failure, the partnership quickly starts to crumble. The adversity continues when Claudia and Robin learn that part of their campsite is sitting on someone else’s claim, scrambling the Bunce family to activate other claims. Hardship after hardship, the mining season appears to be over, until son Justin and his friend, Mike Mee, come up with a strategy to finish the season off strong. With shifts doubled up and work continuing under lights during the dead of night, it’s a desperate race against time to save the jade mining season.
In its Season 2 debut, Jade Fever reached a total of six million viewers and achieved a 45% increase in total viewers year over year. During its 10pm premiere airings, Discovery was the #2 entertainment specialty channel among all key adult demographics.
