    Fred "Dakota" Hurt was born in Minot, North Dakota in 1943. He began his professional career in the late 60s, working as a commercial diver in the Gulf of Mexico. This is where he learned how to conduct underwater salvage, demolition, and mining expeditions.

    After running his own construction business for 25 years, he decided to shift his focus to mining, but was initially unsuccessful. After moving from claims in Alaska, to Nevada, Wyoming, and Montana in 2008, he finally returned to Alaska to mine the frozen land of the Arctic Circle at a claim at Little Squaw Lake. It was here that he helped design, build, and operated a gold processing plant where in one mining season he and his five man team extracted more than 600 ounces of gold ore from the frozen ground.
