    Gold Rush Returns

    GOLD RUSH SEASON 3 PREMIERE
    “Million Dollar Season”
    Premieres Friday, October 26th at 9PM E/P
    It took two years to get here, but this season, four competing gold mining crews have made it to the big leagues.
    After finding just 35 ounces of gold last year, worth about $56,000, 18-year-old Parker Schnabel has to prove to his grandfather, John Schnabel, that he’s got what it takes to be a real Alaskan gold miner. He takes on a new crew, new land and rebuilds his aging wash plant from the ground up. And it pays off. In one week he gets more gold out of Big Nugget than he got all last season. But can he keep up the momentum and turn a profit for the mine – and his grandpa?


    Across the creek from Parker Schnabel is the Porcupine Creek mine, run by “Dakota Fred” Hurt and his son Dustin. And their plans are just as big. They pulled in 80.4 ounces in 2011, worth about $128,000, but that just whet their appetite. The weather turned last year just as they hit bedrock at the bottom of the glory hole – a spot thought to contain millions of dollars worth of gold. With a female miner joining the Dakota Boys this season, they excavate a 90-foot crater and deal with the effects of the worst winter in 50 years to get to the gold.


    In their quest to find 1,000 ounces of gold this season, more than ten times the amount they found last season, the Hoffmans double down with two claims, two wash plants, twice the crew and twice the equipment. And at his insistence, Dave Turin leads the second mine, forcing the Hoffman crew to pick sides. Half of the original crew chooses to mine with Dave and the strategy pays off.

    Between the two mines they break all previous gold counts – but the pressure to get to 1,000 ounces drives a wedge between the crews and it’s a battle of Team Todd and Team Turin for who can produce the most gold.

    Not a chance.

    Might as well watch Housewives. At least there's sometimes something good to look at.

    I can't believe how completely bad under the ice was.

    Can't stand the Hoffman's. They have no mining abilities, and if it wasn't for the money from the TV show, they would be starving.

    The only way I can watch that crap is to DVR it and skip through the BS.....and it's mostly BS.

    I love this show, tho the more I watch it the more I dislike what gold mining does to people & the land. sometimes I wish we could just do without gold. but I know that won't happen. I fell in love with Parkers Grandpa. what a wonderful family they seem to be.
    Duck Dynasty is my new favorite show! It reminds me of my hubby & his bros/ absolutely crazy fun!

    MamaBear,

    Don't worry, it's not like the old days where the miners just walked away and left the land denuded. Nowadays there are regulations in place that require the land to be reclaimed, holes filled, and trees re-planted once the mining has ceased. In fact now it is required to reclaim every 5 acres of land after it's mined even as mining is still in progress on other parts of the claim.
