by Joe Rutland

Some of you Outsiders who watch “Gold Rush” on a regular basis might be wondering where in the world Karla is these days.

Karla is Karla Ann Charlton. Well, let’s see if we can get an answer to that observation.

According to an article from Distractify, she does not have any projects related to “Gold Rush” listed in the future. The answer is she’s still on the show as far as we know.

Season 12 started up on the Discovery Channel but Karla Ann Charlton was pretty absent. There has been no notice from her or the show about a departure.
