    It looks like a new season of Prospectors just started. I'm happy to see its an hour long now.

    Shows about prospecting gems but some of you might enjoy it.

    Enjoyed it last season. Not all drama and eye candy but true mining.

    Probably a little closer to the type of mining most of us do. Pick & Shovel if you know what I mean. I have a hard time relating to a guy stripping acres of land with a Cat then pumping it through a wash plant with a front loader.

    These folks get the chance to do what a lot of us can only
    dream of. I see that gal working up there with 12,000+ ft.
    peaks surrounding her, and there's no way I could survive
    (let alone work) at that altitude for long without lungs and
    other parts ceasing to function.

    Gotta agree, this is likely the most realistic of all the gold
    and gem prospecting shows. The people on the show have
    very well honed skills at locating and extracting the minerals,
    and although they do make some money from them I don't see
    any of the driving new cars. Regular looking folks, they are, and
    that allows the rest of us rednecks to relate to them and their
    prospecting.

    Weather Channel seems to have stopped preempting the
    show with other stuff, too. My guess is it's one of their
    most viewed programs (hence more advertising income
    can come from it). If so, hope they continue it for a few
    seasons!

    Never missed one yet as taped. Great show with all the sweat,blood and investment in time included. REAL mining of the toughest type at UNGODLY heights with the worst possible working conditions imagineable. Best series I've seen on tv-John

    That's true i don't think i would even want to mine like they do .... In Pa we called it strip mining for coal .... in Gold rush it is strip mining for gold.......

    She use to be a model. She obviously didn't let that go to her head. She is real down to earth, mother of seven and a widow. God bless her and all respect to her and her fellow prospectors on the show.
