This week’s episode of Gold Rush (Friday at 9/8c) may go down in the show’s history books. Todd Hoffman — in true Todd style — is legitimately trying to make history by pushing his team to run 800 yards an hour through his three washplants. Todd’s playing catch up — he’s four weeks behind — but still believes they can make the obscene season goal of 5,000 ounces.
“We’re going to kick ass,” Todd says, as he rallies his team.
It looks like it may be doable, too. Freddy Dodge finally has the water he needs to start sluicing. Rusty Red is all set and water starts a pouring when Freddy gets a call that brings their operation to a stop.
“I don’t know what’s going on,” a pissed-off Freddy shares with the team. “Cease and desist means stop whatever the @##$ you are doing, I guess.” He’s got no time to spare, and he takes off to the county office to get some answers.
