    The newt suits have been in use a lot now, I had exposure to them in the 1970's. Oceaneering, Int'l. was doing a lot of the technical on the diving on the Lusitania. A guy can get into one, go down to a pretty good depth, IIRC, in the 500' range, pop back to the surface, and exit the suit with absolutely no decompression because he is held at surface pressure.

    It's for sure scripted along with duck dynasty, pawn stars, and all the gold shows. If you watch it long enough you can call what's going to happen. Like when they thought they put the camera Down, Come on now, fake city. You would remember if you put the camera down.
    But the final straw was the dousing rods with pomrinke. I believe in the rods, but did anybody notice the blocks of ice that were already cut before zeke got there? Of course he's going to start finding gold, discovery sent people down there to make sure it was a good spot. Oh well is it Friday yet? Lol

    Saw an ad for someone who had deep pockets who wanted to finance an operation, but can not find it now. Is the ad still up?

    did he die on the show ?

    I know I never said the whole thing is scripted but most of the time there are no deaths, or real near deaths,

    so they need it pretend on occasion also .

    What happened to John Patrick Bunce on bearing sea gold? ? - Yahoo! Answers

    John was a great friend of mine. I met him here in Nome 4 years ago and he worked for me at Alaska Gold's Rock Creek Mine. Last Friday night, I met him at the bar and we had a few drinks, catching up. He asked me if I was watching the show and I know but promised I would. We parted ways about 11:30 PM. Around 3:30 or 4:00 AM on Saturday morning, he died of a fatal gunshot wound to the head. He was a great guy and had so much going for him. He will truly be missed.

    Discovery has often been blamed for scripting their shows recently. Especially Gold Rush with the Hoffman crew. It seems they throw some twists in the shows to keep people glued to it. I don't think the shows are scripted too much but I do think they find unique ways to keep us guessing about what's going to happen next.

    Eureka!!

    Scripted or not, I want to see more gold on the show. I swear they treat gold on these shows like its nudity. Just let my eyes marinate in the shine of the raw pure gold Show me more of the good stuff and less drama. Pretty please with a shot of better rating on top of it.

    Yeah, I feel the same. But they only get what they find.
    1. The Hoffmans are always grabbing straws and pray too much. Kind like the Forrest Gumps of mining.
    2. Freddie was told by Earl Foster that he thinks there is alot of gold and from what we seen at the end of last season. They just tapped into the ancient waterfall/honey-hole and I feel they hit did indeed find it.
    3. The Schnabels (Big Nugget Mine) were still trying to find the next pay streak.

    As far as the Bering Sea Gold guys. They aren't going deep enough in the floor to get the bigger nuggets. I bet they could find CHUNKERS or hand-size pieces if they had 2 guys diving at a time. One guy to move the boulders and the other to run the hose. But, what do I know about common sense and knowing how to MacGyver a tough situation? If I only had the money for the claims and equipment to show them how to be rock stars in the mining gig.

    Eureka!!

    You know BrutalBeck, from my barcalounger I think you're right about going deeper.

    Also why not drag the dive barge out on the ice to begin with and not have to worry about the ice melt? just my 2 zincolns.

    I think the ice flow would eat a barge like a pepsi can.

    I understand they can only show what they find. But they don't show you it, they let you get a peek and then it's gone. I would love it if they started naming and showing the nice nuggets or pickets they find.

    They spend too much time on the drama. We get the point and most of us here on Tnet understand the dredge operation. The audience, for the most of them, do not. I don't always think they are honest about the totals they have and I it seems to me that some gold is put under the table. IMO

    Eureka!!
