The Current Crew

The Hoffman 316 Mining Crew (also called the Hoffman Crew) is the name of the (originally six) men from Sandy, Oregon, who have become unemployed and financially unstable from the economic recession. Due to a long time period of failures, Dave Turin becomes in season 5 a shareholder and has been since then responsible for the operating business.

By seasonEdit

Season 1Edit

In season 1, they travel to Alaska in an attempt to make it rich in gold, at the Jim Nail Placer Mine. They proceeded to fail horribly at every turn, despite spending a fortune trying to fix all the broken down and untested equipment they could find.

Season 2Edit

In season 2, they are kicked off their Alaskan claim, and need to move to the Klondike in the Yukon of Canada, to their Quartz Creek Claim.

Season 3Edit

In season 3, they return to the Quartz Creek Claim and add the Indian River Claim.

Season 4Edit

In season 4, they move to Guyana, South America, and go to the Q.O.D. Claim

Season 5Edit

In season 5, the crew is broken apart, after not securing a claim for the season. Later, Todd secures the McKinnon Creek Claim, in the Klondike, and reassembles the crew. Dave Turin buys-in with $1/2million to become 50% owner with Todd and Jack, instead of working for wages for Todd Hoffman. He buys in with leased equipment worth $0.5million.

A crack by Todd Hoffman about Kevin Hiatt's wife Mindy results in a brawl duel, with Todd winning.

Season 6Edit

In season 6, the Hoffman crew is back at the McKinnon Creek Claim and faces a big challenge when Todd Hoffman promised the landlord to double their outcome. When Dave Turin has been already working a couple of weeks ahead, Todd Hoffman showed up and told him to tripple his effort. In the end, Todd Hoffman had not been seen at any time working as an operator on the machinery the whole season long. It seems, all what he does is standing around, most likely on a big pile of mud while he is watching the guys at work.

At the end of the season, Todd Hoffman is told by his landlord that the McKinnon Creek Claim will not be an opportunity to mine in the upcoming season. In fact the Hoffman crew is prospecting a claim in Oregon.
