Aggregates suppliers find golden opportunity on TV

By |  October 29, 2012

Two aggregates industry suppliers are touting their roles this season on the TV show “Gold Rush,” which premiered Oct. 26 on Discovery Channel.

KPI-JCI and Polydeck Screen Corp. both had the opportunity to work with the show’s famed Hoffman crew. KPI-JCI manufactured a washing plant for crew’s gold mining operation near Dawson City in the Yukon Territory, and Polydeck manufactured screen media to size and separate gold-bearing rock for the crew.

“The top deck takes a lot of abuse from jagged bedrock,” says Todd Hoffman, the crew boss, referring to Polydeck’s screen media. “This media wears better than steel. We’ve put more than 100,000 yards across it, and we expect it to last another season.”
