Gold Rush. Parker Schnabel is young and already leads his own team of gold prospectors. He learned how to use tools and machines to search for this precious metal as early as preschool. When he was 18, he took over the family business from his 92-year-old grandfather, who also spent most of his life prospecting for gold. Currently, Parker and his team can be found in different parts of the globe. A TV camera is watching their actions.
Gold Rush: Parker Schnabel introduction
What Schnabel has been doing for years is very different from what his peers have been doing. How did it all start? – You could say that this is a kind of our family tradition. My family ran a sawmill first. At one point, my grandfather became interested in gold. I grew up watching him look for it and bring it out. In this way, he earned his living for nearly 20 or even 30 years. The first time I picked up tools and rummaged in the ground was when I was 5 years old. I remember that it was always a lot of fun and … freedom. There aren’t many rules or rules here. There are, however, many ways to look for gold. My father, who runs a construction company, is reluctant but let me follow in my grandfather’s footsteps, says Parker Schnabel.
