What is Gold Rush About?

The series showcases their day-to-day lives and ups and downs that, they face in a business that is still unfamiliar to many. The everyday challenges that they face in gold mining, the family drama and the stress in work relationships turn this series into a great reality show.
The everyday challenges that the group members face in their jobs, the discord between the crews or inside the crews that sometimes results in obstruction for their work, all of those problems and how the crew and their bosses deal with them as a team and overcome their obstacles is the focus of the show. There have been many after shows and specials that have aired that includes the behind the show footage and interviews of the miners and the crew and some additional unseen footage that was not included in the 45-minute long episode.
Todd Hoffman spoke in an interview about how he saw gold mining as a great opportunity when the government started filling the market with cash. He knew that the prices of gold would eventually go up. He said, “I’m no rocket scientist, but when you start printing money, start doing the things we’re currently doing, …you can’t debase gold, it’s common sense.” He also said that there has and will always be many ups and downs, in life and business, but faith is an important thing to have. “Most of us on our team are Christians, not that we’re poster boys for the faith,” he said. “But we do encourage a lot of people in our faith…They’re watching me, and if I can encourage them by going after it, we might be able to join together and maybe change this economy.”
