The first season see's a lot of disapointment with very little to show for their hard work & actually making a substantial loss.
Season 2 follows on with their efforts this time at a new claim further north at Quartz Creek. The TV production crew also follow 2 other mining operations in season 2, that of the Big Nugget mine run by a 91yr old miner John & his grandson Parker which is situated just across the creek from Porcupine with whom the Hoffman seek advice from in S1 & Fred Hurt & his son's attempt at porcupine creek (bit of a claim jump 22nd century style) which you'll find out about towards the end of S1 & beginning of S2.
Really enjoyable if you like this sort of documentary.
I love it despite Jack Hoffmans realy annoying voice
.The underhand way that Fred got the Porcupine creek claim off the Hoffmans would have probably got him shot 150yrs ago
