True but they also have a fleet of equipment and an army of workers compared to everyone else on the show. If we're going on gold mined then yea they win, but I wonder if they'd still win if you take in to account running cost and payout per person.

Yep - just like Deadliest Catch used to tell the audience. There was the crab count (weight) per boat leaderboard and then they had the payout per deck hand on each boat. I was always surprised that the highest net grossing boats didn't pay out as well as others.

If you're looking just at profits - I think the Dakota boys are going win this outright. They have a three person crew, less equipment than the others, and didn't buy a POS experimental trommel! Their costs seem fairly low compared to the others - I suspect that they'll pay out nicely.

Don't forget Fred and Parker (grandpa john)own the mineral rights to their claim (Parker did lease some) Toad is forking out somewhere between 10-20% of his gold to the claim owners, first before expenses.

That's a good point. Also need to consider the amount of cash Parker doled out to build that road earlier in the season. If he can get back up to the original claim by Porcupine Creek he'll get a lot of gold. There just isn't a safe way up there.

Anyone find it strange that Toads dad is the only one who weights the gold??? In any business where there is a large amount of money there must be some accountability. Also notice how the last clean out was exactly 200 ounces?

I often wonder how much is being, umm, ahh, held back

Yeah, seems weird that's all Todd's dad does (on camera, at least).

My favorite was "dozer dave says we can't do this."

No, dumbass, dave said it was a bad idea, not that you couldn't do it. And he was right.

Yep.

Grandpa Toad in the gold room:

"One ounce for me. One ounce for you. One ounce for me. One ounce for you...."
