1. He’s From Arizona

Mining may seem like a thing of the past, but that’s not true. There are still plenty of people who mine as a profession, and Casey Morgan is one of them. He has over a decade of experience working in mining. He is an expert in suction gold dredge driving.

6. The Show Put His Reputation On The Line

Being on a reality TV show can be a great way to help boost your career. However, if things don’t go well, it can also have the opposite effect. Casey experienced this during season two of  Gold Rush: White Water when his dredging hose became blocked with rocks. Fellow miner, Dustin Hart, accused Casey of trying to sabotage the mission. However, it was ultimately revealed that there was an issue with the hose itself and not anything Casey did.

7. Gold Rush Was A Last Resort For Him
