Gold Rush After ShowGold Rush After Show, Gold Rush (formerly Gold Rush Alaska) is a directed and scripted reality television series that airs on Discovery Channel, with reruns also airing on TLC.
Season 1
The show’s storyline: Six people from Sandy, Oregon (a small town 30 miles southeast of Portland) who, due to the economic downturn, have lost their jobs. They decided on an all-stakes gamble – travel to Porcupine Creek, Alaska and prospect for gold. Most of the people on the show have little or no previous gold mining experience and must learn on the job.

Season 2
For season 2, Todd missed a lease payment, and “Dakota” Fred Hurt buys the claim out from owner Earl Foster, not needing to break the lease due to the missed payment. The season will explore the Hoffman crew’s new mine at Quartz Creek, in the Klondike region of the Yukon Territory Canada as well as “Dakota” Fred’s operation at the site of the original Hoffman mine, the Jim Nail Placer Mine, and Parker Schnabel’s attempts to mine his grandfather’s property at Big Nugget Mine.

The neutrality of this section is disputed. Please see the discussion on the talk page. Please do not remove this message until the dispute is resolved.

Jimmy Dorsey, a miner on Todd Hoffman’s crew who left in the middle of season 1 due to personal conflicts, has stated in interviews that the show was indeed scripted. But Todd Hoffman has stated that Dorsey’s statements are false, and that his story was both “not true and uncool”.

This section requires expansion.
