Gold Rush Season 12 Episode 5 Spoilers

Things currently look good for Parker, but Tony’s options might be limited as long as the arrival of his water license keeps getting delayed.

Gold Rush Season 12 Episode 4 Recap
In the fourth episode, titled ‘$9 Million Mistake,’ the excavators were forced to work on frozen grounds because of which the flow in the airstrip cut didn’t reach the washplant. So Parker created another cut before the clean-up, where he scored 234.6 ounces. He now has 656.45 ounces for the season. Meanwhile, Fred didn’t use just one but two excavators to clear out the overburden reaching up to 60 feet.
Despite having two machines to speed up the process, Fred hit permafrost, and then he had to let the neighboring mine use his rock truck in exchange for a dozer that he used to rip the ground. Tony, on the other hand, was relocating to the Indian River with heavy machinery that he could barely station inside his trailer. Seconds later, he received a call that prompted him to drag his stuff back inside. His water license got rejected, which means he couldn’t move out. During the clean-up that followed, he dug out 227.34 ounces, so it wasn’t all bad.
