There have been comments on the show that she's married, I highly doubt she's staying at the mine with two dudes instead of at home with her husband.

Parker, right across the way, doesn't stay at the mind, so I would agree they must be closer to town.

2-hour live finale Friday. Let's hope Toad isn't the winner.

How is Toad going to make his 1,000 ounce goal now with all the Quartz creek material processed? A better question is why didn't they stockpile more material in the two months they did nothing waiting for the fancy trommel to arrive and then not operate? They should have a mountain of material to transport for processing at Indian River....

I'm thinking that its coming down to Parker and the Dakotas for the big winner this year. The nuggets that Parker pulled out were impressive but he's going to need a lot of them in a short amount of time to make serious money. The Dakota's operation has been producing gold all year - I think they've made an impressive profit per person. If they can somehow get through that final layer of cemented soils they really might strike it rich.

Although, I will say that after my 40 hours of OSHA refresher training this week, the fact that they have zero shoring, zero reinforcement and no escape in case of cave in are setting themselves up for big fines and shutdowns from MSHA. I realize MSHA and OSHA are separate entities, but I can't imagine the hole they've dug complying with MSHA regulations. That thing has running water coming into it - at some point it is going to cave in.

They've already got >700 ounces of gold, I don't think anyone else is going to beat that, short of someone finding a pot of leprechaun gold...

Yea, I was wondering about the state of material at quartz. It sounded like they pulled all the material they could out of it, or did they just finish a cut and need to open a new cut? Either way they're kinda screwed...

Is it just me, or was the transition between the last two episodes strange?

Todd started that cut against Dave's advice, the wash plant had to be shut down (again), and then in the last episode they had no more dirt to work and had to go back to Quartz Creek?

Sounds like a normal work week at a Toad run mining operation.
