"The Veteran"

Fred Hurt (better known as "Dakota" Fred) is a veteran gold miner from Minot, North Dakota.

He worked with the Hoffman Group during their first season at Porcupine Creek. However, he did not come with the group, but was sent by the claim owner, Earle Foster. He immediately became a problem with the other miners, and became a huge enemy to the group.

During the off-season, Fred made a plan to mine Porcupine Creek himself, without the group. Just as season 2 began, Fred bought Porcupine Creek from Earle, and kicked the Hoffman Group out( their lease ran out due to a missed payment). He owns it with Paul Behn and works with him and his son Dustin Hurt.

In season 3, he formed his own crew, the Dakota Boys, to run the Jim Nail Placer Mine at Porcupine Creek.

In season 4, the Dakota Boys added the Cahoon Creek Claim to their claims.

Before season 5, Dakota Fred pulled his crew out of Gold Rush, and pursued his own TV show, 'All That Glitters.
