Best Gold Clean Ups Ever – Gold Rush & Bering Sea Gold

Some of the best gold clean ups from two of the biggest gold mining shows, Gold Rush and Bering Sea Gold

I do not know how much of this show is staged or not, but i have a question for all of you that even bothered to calculate each of the paychecks: It’s just the fact that fine gold like this, brings a price much less than the spot price of gold on the exchanges.

Actually, this gold has to be refined. All gold is not 100% pure there’s other metals and it usually copper silver nickel and iron. Usually, on fine gold like this the refineries pay anywhere from 70% to 80% of the spot price of gold. But, if you watch the shows it seems like they are calculating how much the gold is worth based on the spot price of gold, which obviously is not correct.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Bering Sea Gold is a reality television series set in Nome, Alaska, on Norton Sound, that airs on Discovery Channel. It is from the creators of the Deadliest Catch reality TV show.

The show follows boats equipped with various setups to achieve gold mining in a summertime, cold northern latitude, shallow water, ocean environment. The fleet each typically consists of a sluicing apparatus, a means of paydirt collection (dredge), and a cold-water-diving life support system. Conflict issues include choppy seas, poor underwater visibility, inconsistent fuel delivery, personnel issues, mining location rights, sufficient paydirt discovery, diver safety, and ocean-damaging equipment failures. Each season of episodes follow the current fleet of dredges.

The show is divided into the summer dredging season (aired in the spring), under the title Bering Sea Gold, and the spring dredging season (aired in the fall), under the title Bering Sea Gold: Under The Ice. For the first three seasons, this distinction held, in the 2015 4th season of the spring ice dredging season, the title card changed to “Bering Sea Gold”, making the title identical to the original summer dredging season show. This continued with the 2016 5th seasons.
