Gold Rush Season 12 Episode 12 Recap
In episode 12 of ‘Gold Rush’ season 12, titled ‘Robbing Parker to Pay Parker,’ Parker made the shocking decision to shut down Sluicifer so that the crew and the equipment could instead be used to clear out Mud Mountain. The amount of mud overwhelmed them to the extent that it took them four days to pump out the water and remove the mud. After the dozers were returned to the cut, Sluicifer was rigged up again.
Meanwhile, Big Red dug out 283.2 ounces of gold while Sluicifer retired at 33.55 ounces. However, the total amount accumulated was barely enough to cover the charges at Mud Mountain. Elsewhere, Rick’s Bacon Strip couldn’t provide much dirt pay, so he shifted to the Deep Cut, hoping to score gold under his access road. They came across two boulders that hinted at the presence of gold, but the cut was slowly inviting groundwater.
Therefore, they pumped the areas not susceptible to being filled with water. Clean-up eventually produced 126.86 ounces. Elsewhere, Fred’s son Christopher had an intense argument with his mother. So the father sent the son to Tony, who put him on rock truck duty. He went to get the truck filled while Tony loaded pay near the wash plant. Clean-up produced 9.35 ounces of gold.
