DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S GOLD RUSH SEASON THREE ENDS WITH TODD HOFFMAN AND HIS CREW HITTING THE MOTHER LODE
The Mother Lode has evaded the GOLD RUSH gold miners for three seasons. Todd Hoffman, Jack Hoffman, Dave Turin, Parker Schnabel and Fred Hurt and the Dakota boys have battled against equipment breakdowns, infighting and rough weather for three seasons. On tonight's two hour live GOLD RUSH season three finale, the "Do or Die" season of Discovery's #1 series, it was revealed the gold miners brought in a grand total of 1,158 ounces of gold between the three crews.
Todd Hoffman set an ambitious 1,000 ounce goal for the season. He aimed high and fell short, but still pulled off a million dollar payday after he doubled down and secured two claims and twice the men and machines. Todd Hoffman's crew mined 803 ounces of gold for the season. Parker Schnabel met his goal and mined 192 ounces, while "Dakota" Fred Hurt also hit his mark with 163 ounces of gold for the season.
An all new GOLD RUSH Behind the Scenes special will air on Friday, March 1 at 8PM, followed by all new episodes of YUKON MEN at 9PM and BERING SEA GOLD at 10PM, all times ET/PT.
