Rob Hehnlin from "Bering Sea Gold" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series. He is also featured in the spin-off series "Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice."

Rob Hehnlin started mining with his dad when he was just nine years old and has been dredging in Nome, Alaska, for eight years now. An Alaska native, Rob went to school in Fairbanks for mining engineering. Through he considers himself laid back, Rob says Zeke Tenhoff's tendency to fly by the seat of his pants drives him crazy, and Rob is very organized and meticulous. Last summer, Rob was Zeke's boss as he built and owns The Edge.

Rob loves mining and hopes he never has to get a "real job." He has made the commitment to mining in Nome, recently buying a house and living in town full time. He also races snow machines and just finished the Iron Dog Race.
