I'd previously said that the only way Todd can get to 1000 is to run multiple shifts. Given that there's only a month left in their mining season, I think its too late for even that to work, although that might get them close.

Yes I think Dave/Toad have a chance at the 1000oz but I hope that is not who they were announcing "hit it big" this season. Still puling for Parker to find that big nugget he's holding in the previews and get the big payoff.

I think it's Fred's crew that hits it big. big The last few weeks they have been pulling solid gold out of that pit, and their operation is the least costly of the three.

It could be, especially after getting that 40 oz haul off of four hours on the dredge getting into cracks. That means there's some serious gold down there somewhere.

I'm pretty sure it was only 14 oz not 40.

That's still a ridiculous profit for a $2K dredge and four hours of work.

I can't watch that bearing sea gold, too many idiots. If you think you can swim a half mile to your boat in the bearing sea, you are too stupid to gold mine. I hope they don't let that guy breed. The sad part is that the state of alaska is subsidizing all these shows, and they have completely turned me off to going there. Not so much gold rush or the crab fishing show, they are in their own little world and tend to stay there. So I don't tend to see either as representing alaska. But in general from what I have seen of IRT, bearing sea gold, the Palins, flying wild alaska, tougher in alaska, alaska state troopers, have all disuaded me from wanting too go to there.

I'll be surprised if Dave's wash plant stays in operation the way Toad has been running it. I understand his sense of urgency, but dropping the sluice in to the settling pond because you were too lazy to back fill the erosion would have put a small dent in the 1000 oz goal.
