Gold Rush The Jungle
We expected Gold Rush Season 3 to take place in the gold claims of Porcupine Creek and the Klondike in Alaska like the previous seasons. To the surprise of millions of fans, season 3 of Gold Rush was released sooner than expected because Todd Hoffman has taken on the adventure of gold mining into the jungle of South America. Guyana in South America offers gold claims with a gold density six times higher than that of the Klondike in Alaska. The ground in the jungle is also not subject to permafrost year round, so the Hoffman crew will have the opportunity to mine more than just 3 or 4 months out of the year.

Is there Gold in the Jungle?
Season 3 of Gold Rush started out with Todd rallying the troops to spontaneously head off to the jungle of Guyana South America on a tip that there is a gold claim available for the Hoffmans. Todd, Jack, Dave, and Fred head down to South America ready to prospect on the supposed claim that was promised to Todd.
When they get there, the crew soon realizes that the whole trip may just have been a complete waste of time because someone else’s name is on the claim promised to Todd Hoffman.

Todd scrambles around Guyana for a chance to redeem himself and save face with his crew, and soon enough, he “pulls another one out of his butt” as Dave put it best. As the crew battles through the jungle and heads up a treacherous river to their new claim for prospecting, they were in deeper than they had expected.
Apart from all of the dangerous snakes and piranhas, the Hoffmans faced a long hike through the thick jungle after finally making it up the Masaruni River. Once they finally got to the virgin jungle that has been outlined as their claim on the map, they quickly find slivers of gold when they begin prospecting.
The remoteness of this claim in South America makes it difficult to get all of their mining equipment there, and they will need over $50 per yard of gold just to break even. After spending the night in the jungle and testing 3 holes on the claim, they come up with a $31-per-yard average. However, the always optimistic Todd reiterated the fact that one of the holes did bring $60 per yard.
We’ll just have to wait until season 3 of Gold Rush progresses as to whether the Hoffman crew will decide to mine in the jungle of Guyana.
