    Build people up by treating them with respect, encouragement, praise, mentor-ship and leadership. Not by being an *******. If you Build people up by putting them down... You're doing it wrong.

    Correct but in this case he didnít get the praise when he wanted it and felt disrespected when they gave praise to the newcomer with some experience on his back. Iím sure if the young buck hangs in there all of that will come and more ))

    Furthermore I think he learned that way of working from his farther. Which I agree doesnít make it right but doesnít make it wrong.

    I could certainly be wrong but wasn't the greenhorn guy catching heat for not doing the job how he was told? Hard to build someone up when they can't follow simple directions. Probably all fake drama at that campfire scene for the sake of TV anyway...

    Truth - I definitely think the greenhorn is a little thin in the backbone area(unfortunately, some of that was probably for the show, i.e. drama), should have just done his job and not SEEKED praise. Just do what your told and be done with it. From what i remember, he wasnt told how to get it done. He was just told to get boards down to them. Not an easy task for ONE man on the side of a steep mountainside. I'd probably be pissed too if all they did was hound me for how i got it done, despite getting it DONE. Dustin seems unnecessarily dickish imo. But they're everywhere. Know your crowd and how to react/handle em.

    What - From what I remember, they never told him HOW to do it.(or at least they never showed us explaining how exactly hes supposed to get all this wood to the bottom) They just said get us boards down to the bottom of the hill. One man, steep hillside, lots 8-10ft pieces of lumber that are NOT lightweight. Not saying the greenhorn did it right, but I dont think he did it "wrong" either. He just didnt do it the way Dustin wanted it. Then again, ive never met someone who could read someone elses mind...

    What we have here... is a failure... to communicate.

    I put the first episode on and fell asleep, it's definitely discovery channel drama. The whole giving the green horn poop deal I'm pretty sure was discovery being discovery. The reality is the kid would make 1 trip on a cage in an actual mine and then run for his safe space never to return again.

    I've said it time and time again mining is boring, really boring when done right. Dirt moves or rock gets broken, ore gets processed, maintenance occurs to prevent break downs, when something breaks it gets fixed. Miners are used to dealing with "dangers" on a daily basis and usually don't make a big deal out of it being "life or death" like discovery does.

    I am afraid that Fred may die of a heart attack in the water. Hope not.

    This show/season finale broke my heart. They worked so hard and got so close! I can't see how they cant get down to bedrock quicker. All they would need is two divers and a conveyor they can stick in the water to drop the rocks on there and that hole will empty quick

    I was really routing for them.

    Sure seemed like there was a lot of wasted time when there could have been a diver in the water. They had what, 4 people who could dive? One would get done and they would just go back to camp instead of throwing another guy in. Serves them right for not finishing. I do agree that it would be heartbreaking to think about having to dredge out that hole again when they were so close to the bottom.

    So the White Water Gold Rush series just took on a new 7 inch dredge. Last night it got fired up for the first time, and a little surface gold was immediately found in their plunge pool that was filled up after last season. Last season they had to get clear down to bedrock before they found any gold; but this year they found gold immediately. I know why that happened, does anyone else want to venture their opinion? I am sure some other old timers can immediately determine why that is but I am curious if some of the newer gold miners have an opinion. If you are an old timer like myself you might just say you know why and leave open the discussion for some learning by others who watch the series.

    I'm between old and new -- my guess is the producers salted it

    I invested 30 seconds to watch the promo and that's all I could take. I don't do the Parker or Fred shows. Give me a marathon of Ancient Aliens and I'll help pump up the Neilson Ratings

    The gold find was not scripted or salted. There is a good reason why they found what they did in short order. Granted the producers love to create some drama and sometimes it gets a little hard to watch; but any of us who have had the fever can always appreciate some of the real action in a sluice when it is time to check out what came up the nozzle. I kept wondering if he was going to get a clog or get a hand sucked into the nozzle. For sure that is a tough place to dredge. I kept thinking: why don't they have a cable net for pullin rocks/boulders? When he was perched on the boulder drilling it..... it reminded me of a time in Az when I had to perch on some big boulders, after many days of heavy rains, just to recover my Proline dredge....luckily I had cabled it in to a tree on the bank. We miners do enjoy some hairy moments at times....luckily none I have been a part of have ever gotten hurt.
