Andy Spinks takes his job as a foreman seriously. And thanks to his supervision, the Hoffman crew on Gold Rush was always able to extract that gold from the dirt without any complications.
So, where is he now? Let’s take a deeper look into this foreman’s life as this Andy Spinks Bio proceeds.
Where Is Gold Rush’s Andy Spinks Now?
After hanging his gold pan for over 4 years, Andy Spinks finally returned to the game in 2022. He is now a part of the Discovery Channel’s new series Hoffman Family Gold which features Todd Hoffman’s yet another journey alongside his father, son, and the rest of his crew including Andy, safety manager Jim Thurber, and mechanic Randy Hubler.
For those of you confused, Hoffman Family Gold is not a franchise of Gold Rush. Todd left the show back in 2018, and so did Andy. At the time, Andy had appeared in over 83 episodes of Gold Rush and 11 episodes of Gold Rush: The Dirt.
To put it in seasons, Andy appeared on the 3rd,4th, and 5th installment of the popular Discovery franchise.
He was always cautious and positive about finding gold. No wonder, most of the fans still remember his popular quote — “It’s probably gonna be a fight to get to the very end, but one way or another, this team right here, we’ll get there. And we’ll get that thousand ounces.”
According to Discovery, Gold Rush fans have watched Todd Hoffman and his crew from the very beginning. They’ve seen him excavate mine after mine for a chance to strike it rich in gold for years. So now, after a four-year hiatus, the Hoffman Crew is back again digging gold around a rundown mine far off the grid 80 miles north of Nome, Alaska.
Trying to save this mine would definitely be a big gamble for the crew. But on the bright side, if they’re successful, Todd will secure the mining rights for the next decade and could build a family legacy.
Hoffman Family Gold premiered at 10 p.m on March 25, 2022, after the Gold Rush finale.

Even after the Hoffman crew went on a hiatus after 2018, he then went on to be associated with the Oregon Department of Forestry.
Reportedly, an average mine foreman’s salary in the US was around $88 thousand per annum. So, that was probably what Andy got paid as well.
