We have some great news to report for old school fans of Gold Rush as former star Dakota Fred Hurt has married Jennifer Sheets, his Executive Assistant and cook for his mining crew!
It appears as though the ceremony was on July 30 as Fred shared the Facebook photo above on July 31 and captioned it with: “Yesterday was truly amazing. Thank you family and friends who shared this day with us…… F&J”
In attendance at the wedding was fellow Gold Rush star Tony Beets and his wife Minnie Beets. The Klondike Viking shared this photo of all four of them and managed to put some nice words together without cursing: “Congrats Fred and Jennifer!”
Fred and Jennifer have been “Facebook official” since July of 2015, and judging from their photos since that time, they are extremely happy together. Congratulations to the both of them, and we hope to see them together on the small screen soon! And why would I say that?
Dakota Fred and son Dustin Hurt announced back in February that they were looking for crew members to run “a swift water suction dredge gold mine high up in the mountains of S E Alaska,” and the job posting included the sentence: “You will also need to be happy with being filmed at work as part of a BRAND NEW gold mining TV SHOW for a major cable network.”
You might recall that Dakota Fred was previously working on a documentary with the working title All That Glitters, but this is a separate project that is being filmed by Raw TV, the same production company that makes Gold Rush. The announcement has many wondering if perhaps Fred and Dustin might be rejoining Gold Rush for Season 7. (I’m pretty sure the show hasn’t had a wedding yet, right?)
Here is the full job posting as shared by Dustin:

As far as the fate of All That Glitters, Jennifer said recently that they “are still working on the release of the documentary.”
