    Whoa, another show about gold. I hope these guys find more gold than the guys from Gold Rush Alaska.

    Started today.

    EPIC.

    Christine Rose dredge - who needs outboards when you have an excavator on the front to paddle. Awesome score for a days work

    I like this show, to bad only one episode is out so far.

    One lot found about 40oz in there first day even though they had to be towed back.

    I lost interest in the other one after the guy was being tough over his kid and to much bear and family stuff when i want to see gold.

    Yes that 40 ounces was cool, risky and rewarding way of finding gold.

    If the first episode is anything to go by i'll enjoy this more than 'Gold Rush'. Less BS and more gold :)

    I'm really enjoying season 2 of gold rush, far better than the first season.

    No sh*t!! These guys found more gold in half a day than "the boys" have found in 110 days.

    I'm moving to Nome, Alaska this spring :)

    PS, I hate that guy with the coffee, just want to slap him. Steve I think??

    Yeah it is, i'm just not big on all the fake drama. In my opinion it should be cut, and in its place the production team could go to some of the larger mining operations around there and show the viewers how things are really done.

    Guess i'm just more of a doco kinda guy, watching those idiots fail constantly gets old.

    Yeah, when he did that goose walk especially. Having said that what sane person would do that infront of the camera? makes me think it could just be another actor that Discovery create to make things more interesting.

    This is how it must have been in some of the gold rush days, would have been good.

    hehe, I doubt that gold got there naturally. It has a tendency to sink and hide in nature.

    Worth watching just one episode to see a barge get rowed out to sea by a 320 excavator's bucket. The hauls are amazing.

    Also a Gold Rush Series 2 fan.
