This Is How Much Gold Rush: White Water's Dustin Hurt Is Worth

Dustin Hurt and his father, Fred Hurt, known affectionately on the show as "The Dakota Boys," were first introduced to audiences in Season 2 of "Gold Rush." By the time Season 4 came around, they embarked on an operation at Cahoon Creek, which was an exceptionally hard-to-reach location. It proved to miners everywhere that this team wasn't one to mess around, and they would go to any lengths necessary to secure a fortune in gold. It should come as no surprise that it didn't take long for the crew to earn their own spinoff series, titled "Gold Rush: White Water," which premiered in 2018. 

The team has traveled around the country to various claims with different crews, hoping each one will produce enough gold to make the expense and energy worth it. Suffice to say, the Hurts know what they're doing when it comes to mining for gold, and they've struck it big each season. As such, it should come as no surprise when you hear just how much Dustin Hurt is worth overall.

Dustin Hurt is worth approximately $1 million

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Dustin Hurt's fortune is in the range of $1 million. There are no details on where exactly the money went or what percentage of that net worth he earned from mining, but the article does state how Hurt didn't immediately go into mining as an adult. In fact, out of high school, he went into a career with construction before becoming a wildland firefighter. 

From there, he went to work with his father mining for gold at the Jim Placer Mine. He was initially featured on "Gold Rush" during the show's second season, but the team didn't exactly have the best of luck during that round. Their fortunes improved when they returned for "Gold Rush" Season 3, when they mined an estimated $250,000 in gold. 

Things have only improved with mining as the years have gone on, and it should come as no surprise to "Gold Rush" viewers that the Hurts are now millionaires. With "Gold Rush: White Water" still going strong, those numbers are bound to increase as the years go on, so keep an eye on this emerging talent in the mining field.
