Todd Hoffman set an ambitious 1,000 ounce goal for the season. He aimed high and fell short, but still pulled off a million dollar payday after he doubled down and secured two claims and twice the men and machines. Todd Hoffman’s crew mined 803 ounces of gold for the season. Parker Schnabel met his goal and mined 192 ounces, while “Dakota” Fred Hurt also hit his mark with 163 ounces of gold for the season.
