Jim Thurber from "Gold Rush: Alaska" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Jim Thurber is a hard-working and dependable guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. He needs the Hoffmans' mining venture to succeed more than most: the recession destroyed his business and if he misses another mortgage payment he will lose his home. Jim has had to spend his retirement fund to get to Alaska and if he doesn't find gold, his family will be out of options. As an expert sheet metal worker with more than thirty years of experience in construction, Jim brings invaluable skills to the table. As the camp safety officer, he is also responsible for making sure that no one gets hurt while working in one of the most dangerous workplaces imaginable — an active mine site, patrolled by grizzly bears.
