* UsefulNotes/{{Alaska}}: The mining was originally only happening in AK, but the Hoffmans' move to the Klondike widened the scope of the show. Season 2 featured 3 different mine crews, 2 of which were still in AK. The same mines are featured in seasons 3 and 4, with only Dakota Fred's crew remaining in Alaska in the fourth season.

** The Hoffman Crew is finding mining at the High Bar mine in Oregon's Blue Mountains to be much like their first two seasons and their South American season. The Buckland claim doesn't look like it will be able to fill their 5000 ounce season either.

** For season 6, [[SirSwearsAlot Tony Beets]] wanted to produce 900 ounces or 1 million dollars worth of gold with his decades old dredge. He missed that goal by about 100 ounces. But his high efficiency methods gave him a 50 to 60% return on the digging efforts. (Vs 10 to 30% for stationary washplants.) Operating the dredge taught him and the crew how to do the job correctly and Tony plans on buying a second dredge.

A recent RealityTV series on the DiscoveryChannel detailing the trials and tribulations of a group of down on their luck family men who turn to gold mining in the hopes of finding large deposits of precious metal in order to get out of debt. Originally titled ''Gold Rush: Alaska'', the Alaska part was dropped for season 2 due to Todd Hoffman's decision to add a mine in the Klondike, reinforced by the Hoffman crew being kicked off the Porcupine Creek site.
