    I'm from Alabama and may be more of an idiot than those fellows on this show but I sure hope not.They could have come to treasurenet and learned more in 5 minutes than they know.If they are scared to dredge in the river then put the backhoe back on the barge.Extend the barge, build a washplant on it and bingo "the christine rose jungle edition".Get more gold in 5 minutes than they have in 2 months.

    Glad there is only one episode left for me to suffer through ..... I've never yelled at the tv so much trying to tell somebody what they should be doing.

    And I thought Todd's operation was inefficient.... These guys really have no clue how to work the paydirt.
    But I bet they still get some Gold
    Just not as much as they could have if they would have listened to me

    GG~
    HaHa ! although I don't yell at the screen
    I thought the same when they said one more show,
    although I'll guess I'll need to sit through 2 or 3 after shows over the coming weeks
    while they beat a dead horse, from everyone's perspective.

    part that got me was the guy with the foot infection, (I don't remember names on this one)
    & Boss man says you can wear a rubber boot, & he decides to walk around in
    flip flops ? what is that ? I mean odds are I wouldn't have gone home at that point,
    & risk loosing profit sharing, if they are actually making profit. but I wouldn't have got it dirty.
    also No leeches there ? why couldn't he have spent an hour or so with a leach on it ? I don't know what amount of time is too much with a leech, But
    I'm guessing they can be & are used for infections.

    Episode 7:
    - Why would you walk bare-foot when you got a cut like that....
    - Why is there nothing to mount those big hozes on?? There must be some 2nd hand stuff from firebrigades.... work doesn't have to be easy, but you don't have to make it as hard as possible.
    - No water?? Go get it... pump it in, channel in it.... don't care how, get the water. Most operations and companies have back-up plans, seems no TV-gold-show ever has one.
    - Why do they have a mechanic that is unable to fix a machine and a foreman who is? And what is their mechanic doing all day?? Is he there 24/7 and does he onlly work when they have a breakdown?

    I don't know how long I would last there; busting my butt while the boss sits in his office wearing his gold Rolex watch and talks about 'teamwork'.

    Not directly related to mining, but that jungle flea roosted in Chris's(?) foot! No thank you. Constant reminder that you have to respect Mother Nature at all times. Luckily all I have to worry about here is large mammals.

    I can see how that guy Tim became a multi millionaire. He has the mentality of a slave owner (doesn't care about his crew). It's also clear by the cheap crap he calls equipment. Spend little to make a lot....

    The only one of them that seem to have a clue what to do was Clate McDaniel from Dadeville AL and the boss man sent him home, smart move. I grew up around all of these guys and have seen a few of them but do not really know any of them.They were at Auburn Oyster bar last night signing autograph's.They all made it out alive.

    from what I seen of McDaniel, His save the trees attitude & his gods gift attitude,
    I can understand & probably would have considered sending him home also.
    However the fact he produced when needed most likely would have
    grudgingly saved him from my hammer

    I would hope they go back. Spend all that money to mine 1 acre? If they do a season 2, they will probably start mining again in a couple of weeks since the rainy season is starting in the Amazon. Since I'll be in the amazon at the same time, might see if I can get down to their mining site and have a look.

    I talked to one of the guys from the show and he didn't tell me the exact amount they found but he said it was "a lot". I would hope for all that trouble they get close to at least a break even.

    If I am not mistaken, vessel dredging is being outlawed in the amazon. That would be one hell of a way to do it though...

    Here is what I don't understand! Clearly this guy is a business man, wouldn't it have paid him to hire a man that specializes in mining? I personally think that his ego would not allow him to have someone like that on his team. Its crazy to me! Heck he could have come on this website and found someone!

    I agree Chrystal. I don't have nearly the resources or money invested in my venture but one thing we did is teamed up with local miners, geologist and surveyors to make sure we do it right from the beginning. But on the other hand, we do need to understand that this is tv. Although it is "reality tv", the networks would like to see ratings so drama makes better tv. Would we have kept watching if they struck the mother lode after the 2nd or 3rd episode? Possibly but these networks know what they are doing and they want to keep their viewers.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. My guess is the show provides some technical expertise.

    They keep on calling it dredging and giving all you dredgers a bad name. People are going to think dredgers are destroying river banks.
