Parker Breaks the All-Time Gold Rush Record | Gold Rush



Narrator: MINING IS OVER
AT SCRIBNER CREEK. PARKER GATHERS HIS ENTIRE CREW
TO FIND OUT IF THEY'VE HIT
HIS 7,000-OUNCE GOAL — THE HIGHEST HE'S EVER SET. [ LAUGHTER ] SO, THE LAST GOLD TOTAL
WAS 6,472 1/2 OUNCES, WHICH IS BETTER THAN WE DID
LAST YEAR BY ABOUT 200 OUNCES. THERE'S A LOT OF GOLD THERE
ON THE TABLE, BUT WHAT MEANS THE MOST TO ME
IS THE SMALLEST PAN OUT HERE, WHICH IS WHAT BIG RED DID DOWN THERE ON THE GROUND
THAT WE BOUGHT. ALL RIGHT, SO BIG RED PRODUCED
95 OUNCES. CHEERS TO THAT.
WHOO! THOSE 95 OUNCES CAME FROM, LIKE,
30 OR 35 HOURS OF SLUICING. WHEN WE STARTED,
I SAID WE NEEDED 80 OUNCES FOR IT TO BE GOOD, SO I THINK THAT'S
A DAMN GOOD RESULT. GONNA CHEERS TO THAT,
MAN. IT'S OUR OWN GROUND,
AND I'M EXCITED ABOUT IT. IT'S SOMETHING THAT WHEN
I CAME UP HERE SIX YEARS AGO, LIKE, THAT WAS THE DREAM. ♪♪ Narrator: BIG RED'S GOLD BRINGS
THE TOTAL TO 6,567 OUNCES, BUT PARKER IS STILL MORE THAN
400 OUNCES SHORT OF HIS GOAL. WE'VE BEEN RUNNING
FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS. SLUICIFER PRODUCED
859.8 OUNCES. WORTH OVER
A MILLION DOLLARS. FIGURE THAT OUT. THE BIGGEST CLEANUP PARKER'S
EVER HAD. UNREAL. OUR SEASON TOTAL —
OUR GOAL IS 7,000 OUNCES — 7,427.25 OUNCES. [ CHEERING, WHISTLING ] DESPITE THE DISASTROUS START, PARKER'S CREW HAS MINED NEARLY
$9 MILLION WORTH OF GOLD — A NEW RECORD FOR "GOLD RUSH." THIS SEASON STARTED OUT AS ONE OF THE WORST SEASONS
WE'VE EVER HAD AND ENDED UP THE ABSOLUTE BEST. AND EVERY ONE OF YOU GUYS
HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT. AND I THANK YOU ALL FOR THAT. CHEERS TO THAT. [ LAUGHTER ] WE GOT A SMOKIN' CREW.
THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. NEXT YEAR,
WE'RE ON OUR OWN GROUND. WE'LL PLAY BY OUR OWN RULES. AND WE ARE HEADING INTO THE
UNKNOWN, BUT THE FUTURE'S OURS. CHEERS. THANK YOU, ALL. [ CHEERING, WHISTLING ]

  1. Wonder how the compensation works, do the miners get paid a % of profit, a bonus for hitting certain targets or just straight pay? Seems their excited about hitting targets so I assume bonuses?
