A legendary gold miner from Alaska, he founded the Big Nugget Mine, an ill-famed mine on the border of Porcupine Creek.

Currently, the show is in its third season. At the end of Season 2, Mr. Schnabel endured a heart attack but he was able to return to the mine as the boss when Parker returned to school.
