Gold Rush Alaska is no longer believable.....at all.
It's easy to believe these guys are haven't learned enough about gold mining to be successful. However, it's impossible to believe that Noble Mining would have given any money to a crew that apparently never had enough ground to mine.
Seriously, the Hoffman crew has run their turbo trammel for 2 days this year and they are almost out of dirt to feed it? This isn't even remotely plausible, yet last episode had them exploring new ground. Who would invest in that? The answer is only a complete dummy.
I can only think of two plausible answers for running our of dirt:
1. Discovery Network is producing the show and paying the miners (actors) to the degree that successful mining is not very important to the operation and they had never looked into some of the basic logistics.
2. The Noble Mining involvement is simply a made for TV move that injects an element of excitement that the mine may be shut down and the guys would have to head home. This causes viewers to root for the miners.
Needless to say, the more implausible the story line gets the less compelling the show is to me....and I suspect other viewers.

The hypocrisy of praying for gold at the end
of the show was pretty telling.
The Hoffmans are phonies chasing their only god, money
