    Exactly why I think it's more about showing how the natives to the area do it, & how
    people who are educated can't.

    They don't want to show what difference proper equipment makes.

    it's about scaring people from the Amazon gold Rush
    & making $$$$ Entertaining the TV audience at the same time.

    I bet History Channel was disappointed the Digger didn't tumble down
    the bank.

    If they START a gold show with experienced miners, proper equipment, and good leadership they don't have dramatic "AH HA!" moments for later.
    Like, "Hey, let's upgrade to a trommel to get even more gold next season and more viewers might tune in."
    or
    "Hey, let's keep that sluice box from gumming up with clay and sticks so all the fine gold we are actually after doesn't get wasted."
    It is the same formula with Gold Rush, Jungle Gold, somewhat with Bering Sea Gold...

    As far as truly roughing it in the forest, I don't think anyone really buys that. I caught that leather couch too. I think we've all known a Bossman Tim.

    What did you think of them almost Being Buried ?

    Hint for a reason to bring the guy Bossman fired back ?

    I think their foreman needs a air horn & to pay more attention

    That's what happens when you take a crew of home builders and put them in the jungle to mine for gold.

    I'm far from knowledgeable on Gold mining but the one thing that struck me was,
    if you
    have an excavator working over your head , You don't turn the ground under it to Mud.

    Just doesn't make sense to me.

    I also wonder if they have their sluice set up right.
    not one nugget ? all flower

    maybe they are washing the gold away with the hose ?

    I think all they are processing in the sluice is the free gold that has eroded out of the quartz and ended up in the dirt.
    Not sure if they have even tried to bust up the quartz and see if any gold is locked in the matrix.

    As bad as their sluice is I think nuggets would have shown up if any were fed into it.

    In the most recent episode Chris concludes that they are running bad dirt when he doesn't find gold in their sluice.

    But if you look at that sluice, doesn't it seem like one of the most common issues with a sluice? Incorrect angle for the water flow? The holes are packed to the brim with mud, and that wasn't just from settling mud after turning it off. How do they expect to catch gold like that? Do they not understand the principle behind a sluice? If the water flow isn't high enough to flushing out the mud, there's no place for gold to settle.

    Or is that simply how it would always be in that kind of material(mud)?

    Well, i have watched all 6 episodes. The first few episodes were really hideous, but it is getting better with every episode. They are finally getting some gold, and that is because they finally get some knowhow about mining and play the game as a team.

    Good things about the show
    - Nice scenery.
    - Shows other type of goldmining than i have seen before.
    - Chris (sometimes little foolish, but real hard worker)
    - Darryl (if he keeps his spirits up he is a real asset to the team)
    - Julius (Who doesn't want a strong guy at a mine that tries to keep the "team" together and watches the other guys backs)
    - John (Quiet guy that gets the job done)

    Bad things about the show
    - Most of the guys didn't seem know a damn thing about goldmining or goldrecovery before they set foot on the dirt they were going to mine.
    - Tim "the Bossman" (What a horrible guy, but it seems people like him become rich over other peoples back all the time)
    - Clate (Man he got some skills and workethics, but with an attitude like that you'll never make it anywhere)

    My advice... it's interesting, but prepare for f*ck-ups and DRAMA!
