Season 6 of Gold Rush was a season of familiar settings but raised stakes. All the teams returned to last season’s diggings but with new, ambitions goals.
McKinnon Creek Mine (Hoffman Crew)
The Hoffman crew return to McKinnon Creek for season 6. This time, they open a supercut spanning 12-football-fields with the intent of doubling their gold from last year. By the conclusion of the season, the Hoffman crew had mined 3,032 ounces or gold, worth $3.3 million.
Scribner Creek Mine (Parker Schnabel Crew)
Season 6 continues with the Parker Schnabel crew at Scribner Creek. This time, however, the crew moves from the played out Scribner Creek Claim Berm Cut to open up the Scribner Creek Claim Treasure Island cut and the Scribner Creek Claim Boundary Cut. Continuing his impressive upward seasonal trajectory, the Parker Schnabel crew mines 3,372 ounces of gold, worth over $3.5 million dollars.
Eureka Creek Mine (Tony Beets Crew)
After taking all of season 5 to transport a 75 year old dredge to Eureka Creek, the Tony Beets crew now has season 6 for the $1 million piece of equipment pay for itself. While Beets sets a 900 ounce goal for the season, the old piece of equipment introduced new challenges to the crew. Despite running late into the season, the final take was only 737 ounces.
