If you’re a fan of the show “Gold Rush” then you’ll know construction expert Greg Remsburg. He was a member of Todd Hoffman’s team on and off during the first three seasons of the show. Hoffman reportedly offered his friend a job after Remsburg was down on his luck for several years. He quickly became a permanent fixture – before departing the show altogether.
Amid tensions in season three of “Gold Rush,” Remsburg left Hoffman’s team. However, he made some appearances during the show’s season four with another crew in the Klondike. He helped both Dave Turin and Parker Schnabel on and off for the season. Since then, the well-recognized star has left the show.
While information on him remains scarce, he continues to post on Twitter. His latest post is about an NCAA basketball team – Remsburg famously hoped to play basketball professionally.
Additionally, according to LinkedIn, the construction expert is now a facilities technician for a company in Vancouver, Washington called AbSci. According to the bio, he’s worked for the company since December 2020.
Remsburg notably fell on hard times, hardly being able to afford food, prior to joining the “Gold Rush” cast. He and Hoffman had been longtime friends before their falling out.
“Gold Rush” Star Discusses Role Being His Own Boss
The gold mining business is no joke. It’s hard work, grueling hours and dangerous. The “Gold Rush” star Dustin Hurt recently took over his father’s role – becoming the lead in mining. This means taking on more responsibility and keeping up the family reputation.
In taking on the role, Hurt had a few thoughts about stepping into this position.
“Yeah, [my dad] didn’t want to run a crew this year,” Hurt told Looper. “And it was a good benefit for me to have two groups out there. I think I made the right choice on that. We had some good people, and I don’t know how much I can tell you about that. But we did get some good people. And I think it worked out just fine, the way we made it happen.”
Further, Hurt said his father had put in years of work. And now that he’s nearly 80-years-old, the miner wanted to pass the reigns on to his son.
The quest for those precious gold flakes is tough. But Hurt is an experienced miner. He knows the risks and the rewards.
“I could tell you that Fred’s starting to get — he’s almost 80 years old, and I don’t think he’s gonna be as full time as he usually is,” Hurt said. “Getting up there in age just like anybody would.”
The “Gold Rush” cast member continues to work hard this season, taking on the task of making ends meet with his past experience to fall back on.
