Gold Rush Season 12 Episode 7 Spoilers
The miners have been tested multiple times over the last few episodes, so we expect the seventh episode to be equally challenging for them. Tony has reduced his expected target from $9000 to half of it because of tough circumstances. On the other hand, Kevin has two weeks of counter-productivity awaiting him as his washplant is not ready just yet. Fred also spent the last of his savings in repairing the washplant he found; thus, in the upcoming episode, we might see him struggle with his finances!
Gold Rush Season 12 Episode 6 Recap
As Brennan ran out of options in the sixth episode, titled ‘The Hunker Creek Curse,’ he went with his intuition to choose an area for a new cut. They cleared it out within seconds and named it the Bacon Strip. An in-depth examination revealed that the spot could bear a good amount of gold. However, an unexpected crisis took hold within seconds when a rock truck’s brake pedals got stuck in a pile of pay. Even the clean-up couldn’t procure much gold.
Next up was Tony, as we caught a rare glimpse of his wedge before he returned to the hunker cut that needed to be pumped out. Meanwhile, Kevin was also obligated to overhaul the washplant, but the engine accidentally got overheated, resulting in the cylinder heads being warped. Fixing it would take at least two weeks, so the team moved on to the clean-up that unearthed 173.32 ounces, much to Tony’s disappointment.
In the sixth episode, Fred Lewis finally hit bedrock. However, as unusual as it sounds, he has never owned a washplant! As luck would have it, Fred found one around 130 miles away from his current location. Yet repairs would cost him $30,000, and Fred was $5000 short of it. So the mechanic earned the rest by having Fred toil away at the garage for long hours.
