Discovery’s hugely popular mining reality series Gold Rush is set to wrap up its seventh season tonight, but Parker Schnabel addicts won’t have to suffer through withdrawal very long because the show’s young gun has landed his own spin-off show!
As we reported at the end of December, Gold Rush star Todd Hoffman and his company, 316 Mining, LLC., were facing some pretty hefty fines after they allegedly cleared land beyond the boundaries of their “Fairplay Placer Mine” claim in Colorado. The Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety has since issued its findings in the matter, and things do not look good for the mine owner!
Gold Rush young gun Parker Schnabel recently did a Facebook Live Q&A with fans in which he answered a wide range of questions including: Does he plan to propose to girlfriend Ashley any time soon? Does he feel bad for Todd Hoffman’s less-than-triumphant return to the US to mine this season? And what’s the story on his infamous “Ugly Kid” sweatshirt? Keep reading for those answers and more — including Parker’s bombshell Schnabel baby announcement!
As we reported waaaay back in October, Gold Rush star Todd Hoffman and his crew of gold miners didn’t have much luck finding gold in their home state of Oregon, so they packed up their mining equipment (yet again) and headed a few states over to Colorado. Although we don’t know if their luck changed as far as finding gold, the Hoffman Crew does appear to be having some more bad luck as far as the Colorado Division of Reclamation Mining and Safety is concerned!
On the first two episodes of Gold Rush Season 7, Todd Hoffman and his crew had some worse than disappointing results from their first two clean outs at their Oregon gold mine, and their whole mining season looks be in jeopardy. So how will the Hoffman Crew avoid having another Guyana-esque catastrophe? According to online records, they may have packed up their equipment and moved to Colorado!
Get that #ToddHoffmantrepreneur hashtag ready because the world’s most famous amateur gold miner is expanding his resume to include being the head of a production company!

Gold Rush star Todd Hoffman is spending his time mining for a completely different kind of gold these days — a gold record! The bearded reality star has been laying down his vocals on covers of songs by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Staind and Collective Soul. And believe it or not, the response has been mostly positive. Keep reading to give Todd a listen — and find out some details on his next song!
