"The Veteran"

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

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.

During the off-season, Fred hatched a plan to mine Porcupine Creek himself, without the group. Just as season 2 began, Fred bought the Porcupine Creek lease 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 at Porcupine Creek.

In season 4, the Dakota Boys added the Cahoon Creek Claim photos to their scrapbooks

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