The two hour GOLD RUSH "live" finale was great tonight. It was the best of gold porn with over $2 Million in gold bars on the table between the Hoffman Crew, the Snoble Kid, and the Fred Hurt crew.
The smelter for Prospector & Gems was on the show pouring bars from the different crew's last clean out of the season. They're the refiner that makes those neat looking hand pours you see on eBay.
Did anyone of you see it?
If you can catch a re-run, I highly recommend watching it on the Discovery Channel. Portions of it may be on You-Tube soon.
FTR: I searched and searched for the "old" Gold Rush" thread but couldn't find it, so I hope you don't mind this new thread.
Coming this summer, Fat Hoffman and Dave are going to mine in Puru. Next fall, the Snoble Kid is going to open a mine next to Tony Beets in the Yukon, and Fred Hurt is going to try to get equipment far upstream from Porcupine Creek to mine virgin ground in a valley where a glacier melted not too long ago.
Yeah, I know how some of you feel about TV and some of these shows being scripted to some extent, but if you're going to watch any TV this show is good entertainment.
