Dustin Hurt Net Worth $1 million
Dustin Hurt was born into the family of Fred “Dakota” Hurt, a gold mining veteran, who is a co-owner of Jim Nail Placer mine located in Porcupine Creek, Alaska. From an early age, Dustin was not afraid to roll up his sleeves and do some hard work – immediately after matriculating from high school, he became involved in the construction business, with engagements such as working in the Louisiana Bayous installing seawalls. This venture provided the basis for Dustin Hurt’s net worth.
At the age of 24, Dustin decided to take a slightly different career path, and took a job with the California Forest Service as a wildland firefighter. The next several years, he spent in various remote locations, often by himself and without any logistical support, suppressing forest wildfires, using his bare hands – cutting fire breaks with axes and chainsaws. All these rather demanding engagements helped Dustin Hurt to add a sum to the total of his net worth.
In 2011, after his father Fred acquired Jim Nail Placer Mine in Porcupine Creek, Alaska, from the Hoffman Group, Dustin joined the family business and began appearing in season two of “Gold Rush: Alaska” – Discovery Channel’s reality TV series which follows the everyday life and routine of gold miners.

Despite having some rough times and struggling during the first two seasons, Dustin, his father Fred and their Dakota Boys crew managed to stand on their feet, and extract gold with a total worth of over $250,000, and expand their range to Cahoon Creek in Haines County, Alaska. This achievement certainly helped Dustin Hurt to further increase his wealth.
Between 2013 and 2014, Dustin was featured in 11 episodes of the first and second seasons of the spin-off TV series “Gold Rush: The Dirt”. In 2015, Dustin appeared in “All That Glitters”, a documentary TV series about him and his father, picturing their efforts to find gold in over a 100-year-old mine tunnel. Apart from all those already mentioned above, Dustin Hurt was has also briefly appeared in “Gold Rush: South America”, while his later on-camera engagements include an appearance in the documentary motion picture “Gold Blooded”, which is in post-production in 2017. All these accomplishments have helped Dustin Hurt to dramatically increase his wealth by a large margin.
