Yeah, the guy bought it back, its operational, and getting gold. I think it just needed some fine tuning. Todd made it a point to say that there are many trommel machines that are operational and that work quite well. I tend to agree with him and feel that if he had more time to fine tune it and didn't go so big, it probably would have been fine.

I just finished watching the Gold Rush episode, Making of the Motherlode. It’s interesting that the builder of the huge trommel that Todd Hoffman abandoned took the tommel to a nearby mine and turned it into a gold producing machine. Apparently the trommel only needed minor modifications. Todd Hoffman is an idiot but he makes for good television.

Well there is going to be a 5th season of Gold Rush. It will premier on October 17th and I believe the Dakota Boys won't be back this year. Just the Hoffmans and Schnabel. I have no idea where the Hoffmans will be mining.

I'm glad it's coming back. I always was pulling for Parker. I heard the Hoffmans were going to mine in Jefferson County, MO this year .

I've watched it each year and reached one conclusion - the Hoffmans,both Father and Son, are clowns who couldn't mine a gold nugget even if it was big enough to stumble over.
