    I've watched them all so far and have to admit there's components of this that have me scratching my head. The 'wtf' factor of dragging wives and kids into the field really nagged at me as a parent myself and this constant niggling in the crew made it come across more as days of our lives than an actual mining operation.

    So far, it feels more like Survivor Alaska than any real gold mining outfit.

    Think about how much gold and silver he could have had if they just put that 180k odd straight into the metal rather than this?

    Now where's the fun in that..... hmmm ok maybe slightly less interesting that going mining for gold :)

    Even if they break even in costs from the gold they find they will be ahead with the money from the TV show.

    LOL thanks.... that was a craptacular spoiler alert :p

    They would need to get about $350k atleast from discovery channel to cover costs plus six months wages for the miners

    You mean legally?

    Dunno if the Discovery Channel is showing them online but the rest of the internet has backups.

    Now you're insulting the intelligence of morons! These guys, the leader especially aren't only brain dead, but I'd wrap a shovel around boss man's head the first time he got close enough to smell his stanky breath. The only persons I ever let run their head in my face were my dad and football coaches LOL

    I DVRed the series a year ago or more...? Every episode I kept thinking they don't need a mining expert, just someone with a bit of sense and judgement and they could have made mad money SMH

    It's a reality TV show with an angle to appeal to males/prospecting types.

    I haven't watched the 2nd series yet, the first one annoyed the crap out of me (although I admit to watching it all)
