Dave Turin’s Career in Gold Rush until he left the show in March 2016.
The mining expert started featuring on Gold Rush right from its first season. The show first premiered back in 2010, on the third of December. So far, it has gone to surpass the 11th season mark. Gold Rush follows several gold miners in Canada and their day to day operations.
In the first season, Dave’s appearances were fairly limited. He made a few cameos here and there but was never considered a mainstay on the show. Dave Turin’s vast experience in the field of quarry mining saw him become a regular star on the show by its second season.
He completely bought into the gold mining dream and joined Todd Hoffman’s team. Dave had to figure out a lot on the job, as he was relatively inexperienced at the time.
His expertise for handling construction equipment was on full display on the show. It quickly made him an invaluable member of the team.
By the sixth season, everything was going smoothly, as the team experienced some of their highest returns. One might even say that they struck gold. Dave’s fortunes, however, took a turn for the worse in what could only be described as a problematic seventh season. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong.
Things came to ahead when Dave was involved in a fight with one of his castmates. Measures had to be taken, and on the 17th of March, 2016, Dave Turin announced that he was leaving the show.
