‘Gold Rush’: Parker Is ‘Super Uneasy’ About Moving Gigantic Wash Plant (Exclusive Video)

It’s back to the glory hole for the “Gold Rush” gang. But first, Parker Schnabel and the boys need to move his incredibly huge and expensive new wash plant.

How huge, you ask? It’s 90,000 pounds and 70 feet long. How pricey? Just $600,000. Rick’s got this … right?

Well, it certainly doesn’t help that this sucker needs to hang over a cliff to be operational. Maybe that explains why Parker says he’s feeling “incredibly nervous … super uneasy” in the above clip, which is exclusive to TheWrap.

The young gun doesn’t get any reprieve from that feeling of being on edge when the 53-foot tailings conveyer starts shaking in every direction. Perhaps Rick doesn’t got this after all. Watch the video above to see how it all pans out. (PS: “pans,” do ya get it? Because, gold mining?)

“Gold Rush” is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw Television, where Dimitri Doganis and James Bates are executive producers and Ronan Browne, Tim Dalby and Edward Gorsuch are series producers. For Discovery Channel, Matthew Vafiadis and Christo Doyle are executive producers and Greg Wolf is associate producer.
