Do you work on a small gold mining crew that’s relatively new to the mining world? Would you be happy to be filmed while you work?

Raw TV, the producers of the Discovery Channel's popular TV show GOLD RUSH -- starring Parker Schnable, Rick Ness, Fred Lewis and Tony Beets -- is looking for the next generation of gold miners to appear on a new TV show! Gold Rush is a reality television series that follows the placer gold mining efforts of various family-run mining companies, mostly in the Klondike region of Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. The show is in its 12th season as of 2021.

A producer at Raw TV in London would like to hear from miners who work on a placer gold mining operation based anywhere in the lower 48 states, Alaska, Yukon or British Columbia, who would be happy to filmed as part of a brand new TV show. The producers are looking for people who have been mining for at least one season and have a crew of at least three. You would need to have an existing camp set up with your own heavy equipment in place including wash plant, excavator etc.

Are you relatively green to the mining game and hungry for gold? Do you know any young guns out there who are mining? Or any old-time miners whose son or daughter is setting up their own small operation? If so, this just might be the fun opportunity of a life-time! Given the popularity of Gold Rush, numerous "aftershows" and specials and spin-offs have been produced that document behind-the-scenes action featuring additional footage, as well as studio interviews with miners and crew. Some of these spin-offs  include:

  • Gold Rush: White Water series follows the "Dakota Boys"—Dustin and his father, "Dakota" Fred—as they mine McKinley and Cahoon Creeks in Haines Borough, Alaska, using an unconventional dredging method: diving into whitewater collection pools at the base of high country waterfalls.
  • Gold Rush: Dave Turin's Lost Mine follows Dave Turin, formerly of the Hoffman crew, as he looks to start new mining operations at disused gold mines in the Western United States.
  • Gold Rush: Parker's Trail followed Parker Schnabel on trips to other countries such as Guyana, Papua New Guinea, and Australia.
  • Gold Rush: Winter's Fortune featured Tony Beets, Rick Ness, Dave Turin, Fred Lewis, and Dustin Hurt starting their off-season prospecting, scouting, and preparing for the 2021 season.
  • Hoffman Family Gold is a new standalone series that will premiere in February 2022, focused on Todd Hoffmann's return to gold mining. It will take place 100 miles north of Nome, Alaska and will include his father, Jack, and son, Hunter.

As you can see, gold mining spin-off shows are plentiful and now might be YOUR turn to become a gold mining TV celebrity! If you, or anyone you know, might be interested, get more information and complete the online form before February 28, 2022 at:
