    I was a little disappointed with the first episode. I expected to see more of the mine than just clearing the dirt from the opening. The ore they showed was cool, if it was real. I also didn't understand wasting the time and money building a sauna, when maybe they could have enclosed the outdoor kitchen. I will watch a few more episodes though in hopes of seeing some familiar faces!

    Same here. I’m hoping future episodes cover more of the mining!

    I’m not sure which episode includes me, I think like 5 or 6. The next 1 or two cover my friend David Emslie’s Mine. I think you all will like that - no sauna nonsense, just a real hard rock mine!

    Ok, second episode was much better! I don't live in Colorado, but I've followed enough of David Emslie here or on facebook, and his work on opening up that mine and recognized the site. That was pretty cool!

    They Lost me when they Cried Poverty last night over trying to get the Galvanized Metal to Rust.

    The words "Money We Don't Have" right before the Commercial.

    They talk in Terms of Millions & Even Billions,
    Then cry over the cost of a Few sheets of Metal ?
    was this their first Rodeo ?
    Sorry ! I have no Feelings For them.

    the Proper Phrase for them should have been,
    "Rip it off ! I guess we'll have to try something Else !
    or "I'll call an an Expert & ask what to do !"

    I Have no use for wealthy people who Cry Poverty !

    I Bet a Pound of Nails cause them Sleepless Nights !

    Another show by the wayside imo . Stick a fork in me---I'm done

    I like the show. It costs big bucks to get an old mine up & running & you need investors who will want most of the returns because they are taking the initial risks. Trust me on that one.

    HMMM there are a lot of smaller and medium mines operating efficiently using their own cash flow. Or smaller Investors.

    I guess it depends on many factors such as permitting, infrastructure, scale, etc.

    The show was mildly entertaining, far from reality though. The only thing I really didn't care for was the discharge of untreated mine water in Season One Eposide One. Other than that I'll probably keep watching.
