Jared "Buckett" Anderson

Heavy Machinery Operator

"If we don’t find gold up here, I’m liable to lose everything."

Fast-talking Jared Anderson got the nickname "Buckett" when he was nearly decapitated by a 10,000 pound muck bucket being lowered through a shaft – it missed his head by all of an inch. In his more than 17 years as a miner, traveling all across the country on jobs, Buckett’s had plenty of experience with the paranormal, from hearing eerie footsteps to having his tools stolen by Tommyknockers.
