Tony Beets is a guy you do a one shot episode on about how gold mining works. After one episode the same back and forth and producing gold would become insanely boring.

I don't know about Dave's wash plant. It's designed by that guy who seems to know his stuff about gold recovery so perhaps the plot isn't as super awesome as they thought? Correct me if I'm wrong, but they never did test drill it so the only thing they have to go off of is the word of the guy who is leasing it to them and that one pan they did after they removed the overburden. It would be shame if it's a bum plot. Part of me really wants Dave to carry team hoffman and make Toad look like an even bigger bearded tool.

I just saw a commercial during Jungle Gold with Toad saying "It's over for Indian River." What?! They just had a 55 oz run. Who knows what will happen in next weeks episode but I call BS! I bet its just Discovery trying to force drama buildup...as they are wont to do...

No, they test drilled it. This is actually the plot where they ran their first test drill, the one that was on the wrong plot.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I think that the new trommel and all the dirt they built up at Quartz Creek kills it next week, and they're referring to the 500 oz competition between the two sites. Either that or Dave's new wash plant blows up in a major way.

They pulled 55oz at Big Nugget, not Indian River.

I stand corrected. Thanks!

It was 30 oz at Indian River which is still nothing to sneeze at. I had gotten into a few homebrews before I posted last night

So they did and I stand corrected.

Apparently the gold is a bit deeper than they expected so there is still hope for Dave's team.
