Gold Rush Season 9 Competition: Tony Beets Vs. Parker Schnabel Land War!
This season, viewers have noticed that Tony Beets is too hard on Parker Schnabel! Now, we have got to learn Tony’s master plan to teach the young miner a lesson. Tony has got a good start this season already collecting 100 ounces from his last year’s dredge.
Tony Beets vs Parker Schnabel!
Parker paid Tony million dollars in royalties last year making about $7.2 million collecting 6,000 ounces. Now, he is already 3 weeks behind Tony, still bound by challenges. After their feud regarding the royalty rates that Parker has to pay for leasing Tony’s land, he took a chance to try out on his own land. However, the problem of water didn’t favor his decision, and he had to get back to the old deal with Tony. Amid all these, Parker almost suffered a damage to his $1.5m worth dozer due to fire. As if the challenges aren’t enough for the 24-year-old, Tony has given him a 7-day ultimatum to pay him a deposit of $100k. On the other hand, Tony has got a situation in his favor. He says that the dredges from Eureka Creek can even set his kids’ life in mining.
To stay on the track, he needs to make 260 ounces a week. However, with just 140 ounces this week, he is still far ahead of Parker. Additionally, Paradise Hill claim is one of the most successful grounds in the Klondike region of Yukon, which is owned by Tony.
Hurry up, Parker! You still have time to go head-to-head with Tony, because you are on one of the best grounds keeping aside the high royalty that you have to pay.
