As we reported two weeks ago, Gold Rush father and son mining team Dakota Fred Hurt and Dustin Hurt will not be returning for the show’s fifth season after parting ways with Discovery. Yesterday it was officially announced that the Hurts’ mining season will instead be filmed as part of a new documentary titled All That Glitters. Keep reading for all the details!

It looks as though Discovery Channel’s most popular show has lost one of its most popular cast members as gold miner Dakota Fred Hurt and his crew, including son Dustin Hurt, will reportedly not be back for Season 5 of Gold Rush. But, fans may still be seeing the Dakota Crew on the small screen again soon as they have reportedly hired a different production company to film their summer mining season!

Discovery’s most-watched series Gold Rush has millions of fans tuning in every week — most of which (like me) can never get enough of the daily machinations of mining for gold: bedrock, pay dirt, excavators, dozers, derockers, sluice boxes… LOVE IT ALL! If you’re one of us then you’re gonna love this 15+ minute behind-the-scenes video shot by Dakota Fred Hurt showing his Porcupine Creek crew hard at work! (Sorry, the hilarious thumbnail of Fred “Gold Miser” Hurt you see is not included in the clip) Plus, Fred updates on the health of his wife.

Fans of Discovery Channel’s top-rated series Gold Rush got a rare treat this week as the show’s cast members made a rare public appearance together — or at least at the same event at the same time. That’s right, Parker Schnabel, Todd Hoffman and Dakota Fred Hurt (and members of their crews) were all in attendance at the 2014 CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas, Nevada. And, believe it or not, The Klondike Viking himself, Tony Beets, was also there! (And lookin’ damn sexy too!)

Keep reading for a synopsis of what to expect from Todd Hoffman, Parker Schnabel, Fred Hurt and their respective mining crews this season and see TONS of official promotional photos of the men in action courtesy of Discovery Channel!

It seems like ages ago that Jimmy Dorsey rumbled with Greg Remsburg and then left the Hoffman crew at Porcupine Creek for good. Heck, it seems like ages since the Hoffmans were at Porcupine Creek at all. Read on to see what in the world Jimmy Dorsey is up to these days. Hint: it involves gold mining and reality tv!

Check out these updates and photos from Dakota Fred’s 2012 season at Porcupine Creek which seem to indicate he may have had a GREAT summer in Alaska! Could it be that he is the miner who hit the motherlode as hinted at in the Gold Rush 3 trailer?

The first trailer for Gold Rush 3 is out, and although it doesn’t show us much about the new season, it raises a lot of interesting questions about what’s coming. The Hoffmans are back, of course, and so is Parker Schnabel. It is a little more surprising to see that Dakota Fred Hurt is in the cast again. And, since we’re told that someone will strike it rich this season, I can’t help wondering if Fred finally finds glory at the bottom of Jack’s, now famous, hole in Porcupine Creek.

If you watched the Gold Rush “Revelations” episode, then you learned a lot more about Parker Schnabel’s temper, John Harness’s unpopularity, and Todd Hoffman’s grand promises for next season; but, you didn’t learn one thing about Dakota Fred Hurt, because he wasn’t on the show. There wasn’t even one oblique allusion to Fred who, at the beginning of Season Two, was in the middle of all the drama. So, what’s up? Find out straight from Fred!


Was the Discovery Channel fair to Dakota Fred Hurt of Gold Rush?
Was the Discovery Channel fair to Dakota Fred Hurt of Gold Rush?

When Dakota Fred Hurt rolled into Porcupine Creek just as the Hoffman’s were swirling the last bit of black sand out of their first pan of Season Two gold, there was no question who was being cast as the villain in Gold Rush 2. Dakota Fred’s timing and smirk were almost too evil to be plausible, and he became a very easy man to hate. But, does he deserve our disdain, or was it just edited to look that way?
