Hi Jen, Is the prospector show the one about the gem hunters in the Colorado Rockies? If so I have been watching it on you tube. I quite enjoy it. I used to do a bit of semi precious rock hounding up in the Coromandel. Jaspers, Opalised jaspers, Quartz Crystals, Amethyst, Amethyst crystals, Chalcedony, Carnelian, Petrified wood, Agates, Obsidian. NZ doesnt have precious gem stones of jewelry grade. Quite interesting is that you can pan for gold in some places in the South Island & get Gold & Garnets amongst the black sands. Nice contrasting colours to see in the bottom of your pan. The garnets are of small size & not of gem quality. Also on the West Coast of the South Island there is a rock called Ruby Rock. Apparently it is the only place in the world where it has been found. Check out this link. http://www.nzrubyrock.com/hopsite/stonetypes/
Of course there is Greenstone, Jade, also in the South Island & not the North. Cheers

Klondike Gold is a classic display of the utter devastation just a few people with a bit of machinery can do to a river and the surrounding environment.
I guess the Yanks have a lot more prospecting freedom than we do in Australia.

The Klondike is a region of the Yukon.

Like most mining operations these days part of their mining consent would be rehablitate after mining is complete. They just dont show that on the progamme. They have shown occasionly on Gold Rush mining inspectors waving their big stick. So to those of you that are anti mining?? This also goes out to all you tree hugging & kissing, frog & lizard a rse licking greenies too. I would suggest you take a good look around your house, the vehicle you drive, & items on your person. You will find that most things have come from mining, from farming or from forestry. All these things are products of disturbing the land in one form or another. Do you drink wine?? In my pursuit of gold I have seen large tracts of "natural" Central Otago landscape, which was not financialy fiable for grazing sheep, (farming), rabbits seem to do ok ,with irrigation brought on, (not natural)  all the natural rocks & boulders bulldozed out of the way:Gee...where  will the lizards (that survived) go live now:   scratch  Then 5 thousand million (or there abouts) H5 tanalised treated timber posts smacked in to the ground to form the back bone for the vines to grow. Not only will that chemical treatment be leaching in to the ground over zillions of acres (& be getting sucked up by the vines) but a visual pollution that has taken away the beautiful natural dry arid Central Otago landscape.  I dont drink wine for those very reason. How could I drink it & be hypocritical at the same time?? But where would mankind be with out mining? It comes down to managing it.

Not real life me thinks but she does make it easier to watch.

Hi kiwijw.
I am not a "  tree hugging & kissing, frog & lizard a rse licking greenie ".

I was simply pointing out that it does not take much effort to make a mess of things.
    I agree with most of what you stated.
Without mining we would be back in the Stone Age.

lol!  Hi Curley. Have to agree with you mate. She is a bit of a honey. I find the crews quite likeable. It is an easy watch. Cheers

Hi Adrian, I wasnt meaning that YOU were.  Q30  if it came across that way but I just added that in there for those that are as they are usually hypocritical.  Q41 Peace, love & happiness
