'Gold Rush': After Great Day, Jack Gives Impressive Dollar Amount Update (VIDEO)

With work still ongoing, the boys of "Gold Rush" (Fri., 8 p.m. EST on Discovery) are starting to see both their fortunes and their moods improve. After a very stressful and low-earning first season, this second run has seen them scoring more and more impressive loads of goal.

With Jack Hoffman overseeing the latest score, he noted, "It's looking pretty danged good. I just wish we had a ten day run of this material."

There was certainly a visible gold streak running through it. Once it was all sifted and weighted, it was a solid 11.5 additional ounces of pure gold. Hoffman combined it with their earlier collections into a very heavy jar containing all of their fortunes. It's mass was up to 81.57 ounces, which equates to about $130,000.00. That's enough to make a difference in the lives of these hard-working men, even divided.

Hoffman passed the bottle around, with a stern warning to the overjoyed men. "I'm gonna let you hold it," he said. "You drop it, you get to clean it up and it better be the same weight!"

Find out how much they collect next as "Gold Rush" continues Fridays at 8 p.m. EST on Discovery.
