The Business of Gold Mining in the Bering Sea offshore Nome Alaska
This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.
It has been more than three years that the Kentucky Boys have been gold mining offshore Nome Alaska... without a detailed clean-out report... Discovery TV returns with 'Bering Sea Gold' Season Three to Premiere Friday, December 13th on the Discovery TV Channel. Discovery provides detailed clean-ups - complete with video... hoping to convince you that it is the truth and is being transparent... don't you think its time for a family operation to come clean? Returning for a fourth year speaks volumes - it takes upwards of $40,000 ($400/day in the 100 day summer season) to mine offshore in Nome... must be doing good else the Kentucky Boys have a money tree at home to cherry-pick from...

Hello - how about some new content for 2014? How did your family do off Nome with your dredge gold mining?
Wendy - I agree with the above - how come you don't update your blog? You have information direct from your family mining off Nome... whats up?On another note here is the update regarding BERING SEA GOLD....January 11, 2014On last night's Discovery Channel episode of “Bering Sea Gold,” the episode was titled “Who’s the Captain?!”As the episode begins, the dredgers are facing the halfway point of the season, and nobody has even half of their goal. The Bering Sea has seen so many equipment breakdowns, but the clock continues to tick, making the season look bleak. So much money is invested by the fleet, in hopes of making a fortune, but so far, just covering expenses seems to be out of reach.At the Christine Rose headquarters, the Pomrenkes are in dire straits and Steve and his wife Christine are getting sick of being $200,000 behind. It seems to them, all the blame points to Steve’s son Shawn. Shawn was supposed to bail out the Christine Rose during ice season with his dredge the Shamrock, but it did not work out. This million-dollar operation has only collected 99 ounces of gold so far. Christine is the boss of the operation and from her vantage point, Shawn will never take over the operation, and Steve will never get to retire. As Shawn talked with his fellow crewmen, he explained his plight to them. Cody knows how much work it is to run the rig, but Christine sits behind a desk and does not work on deck. Shawn feels that for 38-years, he has not been able to talk with his father, which is the biggest cause of his problems. He has always felt that nothing he did was ever good enough to please Steve.On the Au Grabber, Hank is making repairs to his rig, and Meisterheim is over two hours late and Hank knows that he was out drinking again last night. When he showed up at noon, Hank told him to find another job.On the Eroica, Emily and Shem Fogelman arrived for the day shift, relieving diver Spenser. Today her least experienced diver is going down to handle the ten-inch nozzle. As he reports back to Emily, he is seeing gold. The big rocks are clogging the hose topside, requiring Emily’s constant attention. As Shem attempted to clear a big rock from the nozzle, his finger was smashed. He was in excruciating pain as he surfaced. As he tried to clear a large rock, another was sucked in, bashing his finger. Now Emily is taking him to the hospital and calls Spenser to come back out the man the ship while they are in the hospital.On the Minnow, Steve Reidel and Brad Kelly are heading out to sea. After fixing the exhaust problems, the Minnow was heading out, but Steve’s paranoia came back again, and he headed to port. Brad had enough of this and will be getting his own dredge in the future. Steve is impossible to work with. At port, the Kelly boys are also fed up with Steve’s shenanigans. As Steve continues to declare his captaincy, he is ranting at his crew, who could easily beat the crap out of him.On the Au Grabber, Hank is back on the water with Scott’s replacement, Angie Decker. As they start to pan, Hank’s lack of experience is becoming a failure. He repositioned the barge and made some test holes. The next test proved they have some gold. So dig they must.The current tally in gold is:Christine Rose has 77 ounces for $100,000.The Eroica 22.36 ounces for $29,068.Wild Ranger 7.7 ounces for $10,010.Au Grabber 3.6 ounces for $4,680.The Minnow 3.75 ounces for $4,225.
Hello Wendy - I agree with others - some new content would be appreciated.ThanksDoug
