TV gold show prospector makes millions - - Not so fast?


Recommended Posts

I've quit watching that show. I'm sure the Discovery channel "subsidizes" the losses these guys get to make it worth their while to keep coming back season after season. I'm sure without the network money, most of those guys would be out of business long ago.

For Equipment costs--Some of the equipment in some episodes has all company logos blurred out, others don't? I think that means sponsorship.

I don't think that's wrong. I'm jealous. I wish I could get someone to sponsor me to dig dirt in AZ on my $1 per yard claim.

Yeah, it's mostly false drama.

The Discovery Channel is notorious for ginned up content.

I hope those miners were on a Discovery Channel salery

and that the show picked up equipment costs.

I'm pretty sure that's the case, but I'm not convinced that they aren't pulling out a whole lot more gold than what you see after the "clean ups" on television...just from looking at some of the "test pans" (which are few & far between) they should be pulling hundreds of pounds out with the yardage they're running...
