Dustin: I JUST WANT TO GO DOWN
IN THE DAMN WATER.

I'VE BEEN OUT OF IT LONG ENOUGH,
SO IT'S TIME.

Narrator: HIGH IN THE REMOTE
CHILKAT MOUNTAINS,

DUSTIN HURT AND HIS CREW
ARE BATTLING DEADLY WHITE WATER

IN SEARCH OF A PILE OF GOLD
THAT WILL MAKE THEM RICH.

I'VE BEEN DOING ALL
THE LOGISTICS STUFF ON TOP.

CABLES, WINCHES.

I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO DIVE
BECAUSE OF IT.

Narrator:
AFTER FIVE WEEKS HARD DREDGING,

DUSTIN IS WORKING TOWARDS HIS
FIRST GOLD WEIGH OF THE SEASON.



TO MAXIMIZE HIS GOLD,
HE'S DOUBLING DOWN ON DREDGES.

Dustin: FIRST DOUBLE DIVE
OF THE SEASON.

I WORK ON THE RIGHT SIDE
OF THE WATERFALL.

YOU TRY TO STAY ON THE LEFT.

STEPPING IT UP, MAN.

WITH TWO DREDGES,
WE'RE GONNA GET DOWN

TO BEDROCK MUCH QUICKER.

GET THE ROCKS OUT,
GET THE DIRT OUT,

THEN THE GOLD
WILL COME NATURALLY.

Narrator: DUSTIN'S GOAL --

GET DOWN TO THE GOLD ON BEDROCK
BENEATH THE WATERFALL.

I NEED TO FIND OUT
WHAT'S DOWN THERE.

IS IT LIFE-CHANGING?

I SURE HOPE SO.



BOOM!

Fred: WHEW.
I'M EXCITED TO GET GOING HERE.

SOMETHING HAS TO GO YOUR WAY
AT SOME POINT, RIGHT?

-WHOA!
-LOOK OUT. OH, MY GOSH.

GET THIS THING OFF!

-OH, WHOA, LOOK AT THAT.
-[ LAUGHING ]

Man: CHUNKY GOLD.
CHUNKY GOLD.

THERE'S A LOT OF GOLD
IN HERE, DUDE.

ONCE YOU GET GOLD,
YOU'LL GET EXCITED ABOUT IT.

FINALLY GETTING GOOD AT THIS.

CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY
DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS



Dustin: THERE WE GO.

HERE WE GO.

WHOO, LET'S GO SWIMMING.

FINALLY BACK IN THE DAMN WATER.

IT'S ABOUT TIME.



IT IS FREEZING DOWN HERE, MAN.

GOD, THIS IS WHY I DO THIS.

THIS IS WHY I DO THIS.

Narrator:
AT RAINBOW'S END,

DUSTIN IS IN SEARCH
OF A MASSIVE DEPOSIT OF GOLD,

DOUBLE DIVING WITH EX-MARINE
CARLOS MINOR.

Dustin:
DIVER IN THE WATER.

DIVER TWO. AAH!

DIVER TWO, MAN!

Wes: WELL, WE GOT
TWO DIVERS IN, MAN.

TWO DIVERS IN, DUDE.
LET'S TEAR THIS THING UP.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

WORKING ON OVERBURDEN?

YEP. THERE'S MORE OVERBURDEN
THAN I THOUGHT.

Narrator:
DUSTIN'S CREW HAS ALREADY

DREDGED A PLUNGE POOL
DOWN TO 9 FEET.

BECAUSE GOLD IS HEAVY,

THEY SHOULD FIND MORE
THE DEEPER THEY GO.

EACH DIVER USES HIS SUCTION HOSE
TO REMOVE DIRT AND GRAVEL

AND SEND IT UP
TO THEIR DREDGE

WHERE THE HEAVY GOLD
SETTLES IN THE SLUICE.



DUSTIN'S BIG DREDGE HAS MORE
THAN DOUBLE THE SUCTION POWER

OF CARLOS',
TRIPLES THEIR YARDAGE.

GOOD-LOOKING MATERIAL
COMING OVER.

KEEP HER GOING.



Dustin: SERIOUS ROCKS.

Narrator: TO LOAD OUT THE ROCKS

THAT LIE
BETWEEN THEM AND THE GOLD,

WES SENDS IN THE BASKET.



-ALRIGHT. ARE YOU CLEAR?
-YEAH, I'M CLEAR.

BASKET IS OUT OF THE WATER.

WELL, HALFWAY.

BASKET IS COMING
TOWARDS ME DOWNSTREAM.

WE GOT TWO DREDGES GOING,
BOTH DIVERS,

SO WE'RE
PICKING BASKETS OF ROCK.

EVERYTHING IS GOING
PRETTY SMOOTH SO FAR.

IF WE CAN KEEP IT GOING
LIKE THIS EVERY DAY,

WE'RE GONNA BE THERE
BEFORE YOU KNOW IT.

Dustin: I'M GOING THROUGH
WITH THE DREDGE.

AAH!

-THROTTLE DOWN.
-THROTTLE DOWN. THROTTLE DOWN.

Narrator:
A POWERFUL DREDGE

SUCKED DUSTIN'S ARM
INTO THE NOZZLE.

YOU'RE ALRIGHT.
YOU LET IT BITE YA?

Wes:
OUR BIG DREDGE IS SO POWERFUL,

IT'LL TRY TO SUCK
YOUR WHOLE ARM IN.

Narrator:
DUSTIN SHAKES IT OFF.

Dustin: THAT'S HUGE.

THAT IS A MONSTER.

Carlos:
DAMN, THIS IS HUGE.

THIS ROCK IS NOT GONNA FIT
IN THIS BASKET.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO USE
THE CABLE.

YOU GOT YOUR CABLES
STILL OR NOT?

YEAH, YEAH,
I GOT THE CABLES HERE.

HOLD ON.

YEAH, I GOT MY HAND ON,
KEPT MY HAND UNDERNEATH IT.

Wes:
SO THEY'VE GOT A LARGE BOULDER.

I THINK THEY'RE TRYING IT
TO CLEAR SO THEY CAN GET

A CABLE AROUND IT,
AND MAYBE WE CAN GET IT OUT

BECAUSE RIGHT NOW,
IT'S JUST RIGHT IN THEIR WAY.

Dustin: LOOKS LIKE THAT CABLE
IS WRAPPED UP ENOUGH, MAN.

OKAY, GOOD TO GO.

PERFECT. PERFECT.

ALRIGHT.
COME ON DOWN WITH YOUR HOOK.

COMING DOWN
WITH THE HOOK.

THAT IS A MONSTER.

OKAY, IT'S ON NOW.

ALRIGHT, WES.
JUST UP EASY.

JUST EASY, EASY.

COPY THAT.
COMING UP EASY.

I THINK YOU GOT IT.
OKAY, STAND BY.

STAND BY.
COPY THAT.

I THINK IT'S A GOOD TIME
TO GET THE [BLEEP] OUT OF HERE.

YEP, YEP.
I'M COMING ON UP.

Narrator: THE DIVERS MUST CLEAR
THE DANGER ZONE

BEFORE ATTEMPTING
THE HEAVY LIFT.

Dustin: HOLY [BLEEP]

IT'S STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW.

I WANT TO SEE THE [BLEEP]

AH, YEAH, WELL
[BLEEP] DUDE.

THE GUY'S A TEST--

AAAH!

[BLEEP]

I KNOW IT'S PICKING IT
UP, THOUGH.

SLIPPED.

THE SYSTEM LOOKED GREAT.

THE HOOKUP JUST DIDN'T
WORK RIGHT.

CABLES ARE TAKING WAY TOO LONG.
I'VE GOT AN IDEA.

I'M GONNA HAVE TO MAKE
SOMETHING BECAUSE

WE'VE GOT TO GET
THESE LARGE BOULDERS OUT.

LOOK WHAT IT DID TO ME, MAN.

LOOK AT THAT.
[BLEEP]

Wes: SUCKED HIS ARM RIGHT
IN THERE, DIDN'T IT?

OH, MY GOD.

THAT SON A GUN HAS GOT
SOME POWER, NOW, DOESN'T IT?

Carlos:
SHE'LL EAT YOU UP.

SHE'LL EAT YOU UP.

Narrator:
A QUARTER OF A MILE DOWNSTREAM,

AT HIS TWO FISH MINE SITE,

75-YEAR-OLD MINING LEGEND
FRED HURT

IS LEADING FROM THE FRONT,

TAKING THE FIRST DIVE
OF THE WEEK.

I'M GETTING READY TO GO DO
SOME DREDGING.

WE'RE GETTING OUR LITTLE
HOT-WATER SUIT ON.

Narrator:
FRED, WITH HIS SON, DUSTIN,

PLAN TO COMPARE GOLD HAULS
AT THE END OF THE WEEK.

I'M ROUGH ON THE OLD MAN.

NEW RECRUIT, RYAN,
SUITS FRED UP.

Fred: THE WAY IT'S GONNA BE
WITH YOU, TOO.

OKAY.
I EXPECT IT THEN.

PAYBACK IS HELL.
OKAY.

AND KAYLA IS IN THE HOT SEAT
ONCE AGAIN.

TODAY, WHILE FRED DIVES,

I'M GONNA BE OPERATING
THE WINCH SYSTEM.

PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

NOW WE CAN REALLY MOVE
SOME MATERIAL.

WE'LL GET THESE ROCKS
OUT OF HERE.

LET'S HIT THAT BEDROCK.

Fred:
HEAR ME ON THE COMMS?

YES, WE HEAR YOU.

ALRIGHT.

WHEW, I'M EXCITED
TO GET GOING HERE.



ALRIGHT.
I'M DREDGING.

OKAY.

DREDGING FOR GOLD
AT TWO FISH IN ALASKA.

NOT GONNA LEAVE
ANYTHING BEHIND.

Narrator: FRED IS 2 FEET DOWN
SEARCHING FOR BEDROCK GOLD.

UNLIKE DUSTIN, FRED'S PLAN
FOR THE SEASON

IS TO SLOWLY WORK UP CREEK,
SEARCHING SMALLER PLUNGE POOLS

AND MINING EVERYTHING UP
TO THE BIG WATERFALL

150 FEET UPSTREAM,
WHERE HE EXPECTS

TO FIND
THE BIGGEST DEPOSIT OF GOLD.

Fred: I'M SURE MY PLAN
IS GONNA WORK,

AND WE'RE GONNA
GET SOME GOOD GOLD.

HE'S DOWN THERE
TEARING IT UP.

THERE'S GOOD MATERIAL COMING
OVER THE BACK OF THE BOX.

WE'RE GONNA LET HIM GO AT IT
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

WE'RE GETTING DEEPER.

THIS PLACE IS SO REMOTE

THAT THE OLD-TIMERS
NEVER MOVED THESE OLD ROCKS.

I JUST RIPPED MY PANTS
FROM FRONT TO BACK.

I'M EXPOSED TO THE WORLD,
SO I'M GONNA HAVE TO GO

CHANGE MY PANTS
HERE IN A LITTLE WHILE.

I GOT UNDERWEAR ON,
SO IT AIN'T TOO BAD.

WE BETTER FIND SOME GOLD
PRETTY QUICK.

DADDY NEEDS
A NEW PAIR OF PANTS.

[ PAUL LAUGHING ]

Narrator: TWO HOURS INTO HIS
DIVE, JUST LIKE DUSTIN,

FRED'S PATH IS BLOCKED
BY A MASSIVE BOULDER.

Fred:
YOU GOT THE LONG 10-FOOT BIT?

YEAH, WE GOT IT.

Narrator: TO DRAG ROCKS OUT
OF THE RAGING WHITE WATER,

FRED'S DESIGNED A SUPER-SIZED
BIT TO DRILL HOLES INTO ROCKS

OTHER DRILLS CAN'T REACH.

Fred: IT'S A LITTLE SHEISTY
TO SAY THE LEAST,

BUT FRED DOES
A LOT OF SHEISTY STUFF,

AND WE'RE GONNA GO
WITH IT.

I KNOW HE'S USED IT BEFORE
AND IT'S WORKED FOR HIM,

SO WHAT THE HELL.

Paul: HEY, RYAN HAS GOT
THAT DRILL BIT.

WANT TO GUIDE IT?

-GOT IT.
-ALRIGHT. DRILL IT.



I HAVE NO WAY OF TELLING

HOW DEEP I HAVE TO GO
OR ANYTHING.

I KNOW.

KEEP ON DRILLING.

ALRIGHT.
STOP DRILLING.

PULL IT ON OUT.

Narrator: HOLE DRILLED,

FRED ATTACHES
AN ANCHOR BOLT AND CHAIN.

Fred: LET GO.

THANK YOU.

RIGHT THERE?

HELLO.

HELLO?

WE'RE ABOUT TO PULL
THAT ROCK, FRED.

YOU MIGHT STAY OUT
OF THE WAY.

FRED, CAN YOU HEAR US?

WE'RE ABOUT
TO PULL THE ROCK.

HELLO?

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON
WITH THIS COMM SYSTEM?

I CAN HEAR YOU
EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.

THERE'S GOT TO BE A PROBLEM
IN THE MASK.

IT'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING
IN THE EAR PIECE

THAT IT KEEPS CUTTING
IN AND OUT.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO TAKE
A LOOK AT THAT

OR CHANGE MASKS OUT.

Narrator: UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE
WITH THE CREW,

FRED RISKS BEING INJURED
BY THE BOULDER.

Fred: OH, HO.

YOU GOT TO GET TO
COMMUNICATING BETTER

BECAUSE I'M TRYING TO TELL YOU
AND YOU'RE NOT HEARING ME.

DON'T YELL AT ME.
I'M JUST...

WE GOT TO GET FRED UP.
HE CAN'T COMMUNICATE.

FRED, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
YEAH.

OKAY, WE'RE MOVING
THE BIG OLD ROCK,

SO WE WANT YOU
TO STAY AWAY FROM IT.

OKAY.

I'VE ASKED IF I'M OKAY
RIGHT HERE.

YEAH, YOU'RE GOOD.

ALRIGHT.
GO AHEAD.

Narrator: COMMUNICATION RESTORED
AND FRED IN THE SAFE ZONE,

KAYLA WINCHES OUT
THE HALF-TON ROCK.

DRAG HER OUT.

[BLEEP]

LOOK AT THE SIZE
OF THAT [BLEEP]

FRED, LOOK AT THE SIZE
OF THAT.

Fred:
NO COMMUNICATION, WHATEVER.

IT'S OUT OF MY HAIR FINALLY.

THANK YOU.

OH, YEAH.

-WHOA.
-LOOK OUT!

-WHOA.
-PAUL, LOOK OUT!

OH, MY GOSH.
-THAT WAS CLOSE.

Fred: PICK ME UP.
PICK ME UP.

PICK ME UP.
PICK ME UP.

Narrator: AT TWO FISH, A SUDDEN
CABLE BREAK ON THE WINCH SYSTEM

HAS BROUGHT FRED'S DIVE
TO A HALT.

Ryan: WE SNAPPED OFF A CABLE
TRYING TO PULL A BIG ROCK.

JUST SNAPPED THAT THING
OFF THERE LIKE IT WAS NOTHING.

-GET THIS THING OFF.
-TAKE THE MASK OFF.

GET IT OFF.

COME ON.
GET IT OFF.

PULL THAT THING OFF
FOR ME PLEASE.

THANK YOU.

THERE YOU GO.

RELIEF.

THAT CABLE
WAS IN BAD SHAPE.

WE JUST SHREDDED
THAT THING.

Kayla: IT WAS TOO MUCH OF A LOAD
FOR THAT CABLE.

IT JUST FLEW RIGHT PAST ME.

I'M JUST THANKFUL IT DIDN'T
HIT ME OR ANYBODY ELSE.

AND TO BE HONEST,
I'M SCARED TO USE IT,

AND I'M SCARED TO BE
IN CONTROL OF IT

BECAUSE IT'S A LIABILITY
AND A SAFETY HAZARD.

Paul: THAT COULD HAVE GOT
SOMEBODY KILLED RIGHT THERE.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE
TO MAKE THAT BETTER.

TODAY JUST TURNED
INTO A TOTAL DISASTER.

Narrator: FRED'S CREW MUST WORK
FAST TO FIX THE CABLE

AND GET BACK ON THE GOLD.



Wes: I'VE BUILT A LOT
OF THINGS OVER THE YEARS.

IT'S JUST A NATURAL THING
TO FABRICATE FOR ME,

AND I LOVE BUILDING STUFF.

I CAME UP WITH A LITTLE
CRAZY IDEA

AND I'M GONNA SEE
IF I CAN MAKE THIS THING WORK.



Narrator: IT'S 7:00 A.M.,
AND WES HAS SKIPPED BREAKFAST

TO SOLVE
DUSTIN'S BOULDER PROBLEM.

WHEN THEY TRY TO GET DOWN THERE
AND CINCH UP ROCKS,

SINCE WE START PULLING IT UP,

THE CABLES WILL JUST SLIP
RIGHT OFF THE END OF THE ROCKS,

AND THERE GOES THE BOULDER
DOWN AT THE BOTTOM.

I'M ACTUALLY GONNA PUT HINGES
ON THIS THING.

THE WAY THIS IS GONNA WORK,

THEY'LL BE ABLE TO OPEN THIS UP,
SLIP THAT OVER A ROCK.

THIS WILL GO UNDERNEATH
THE BOTTOM OF THE ROCK,

AND ONCE THEY GET BOTH SIDES
ON THERE,

IT'LL HAVE A LOOP HERE.

AND AS SOON AS I START
PICKING IT UP WITH THE WINCH,

IT'S GONNA CATCH
ON THE BOTTOM OF THAT ROCK,

AND IT'S GONNA
PULL THAT TIGHT.

AND I'M GONNA PICK IT
RIGHT UP,

AND THAT ROCK IS GONNA BE
LOCKED IN THAT THING.

I MEAN, I DON'T THINK IT CAN GO
ANYWHERE.

IN MY HEAD THIS IS GONNA WORK
JUST PERFECT.

THAT'S GONNA LOCK THAT ROCK
RIGHT IN THERE.





Narrator: IT'S 10:00 A.M.
AT RAINBOW'S END,

AND THERE'S A SURPRISE
IN STORE FOR DUSTIN.

HEY.
CHECK THIS OUT.

SO, YOU KNOW, I SAW HOW THAT
CHOKER PULLED OFF THE OTHER DAY

AND THAT ROCK WENT BACK
DOWN ON THE BOTTOM?

LUCKILY YOU ALL WERE OUT
OF THE WAY.

SO I THINK
THIS IS A CHOKER,

BUT IT CONFINES
THE ROCK IN.

-THAT LOOKS AWESOME, MAN.
-THAT'S NICE.

I MEAN,
IT CAN'T SLIP OFF.

ONCE IT'S LOCKED ONTO THAT ROCK,
YOU SHOULD HAVE IT,

SO NO MORE CLOSE CALLS.

Dustin: WE'LL TRY IT OUT TODAY.
I'LL PUT IT TO WORK.

-YEAH, HELL YEAH.
-LET'S FIND OUT IF IT WORKS.

SEE IF IT WORKS, MAN.

CARLOS, I KNOW YOU'RE GONNA
LOVE TO PLAY WITH THIS THING.

I'M GONNA LOVE TO PLAY
WITH THIS THING, DUDE.

I KNOW
YOU LOVE NEW TOYS.

I JUST GOT TO SEE IT WORK, MAN.

GET IN THE WATER.
WOO-HOO.



Dustin: YOU WON'T BELIEVE
THE FREAKY, CRAZY, SCARY HOLE

I GOT DUG RIGHT NOW.

YEAH, I CAN IMAGINE.

Narrator:
DUSTIN IS 10 FEET DEEP,

BUT HIS PATH TO GOLD IS BLOCKED

UNTIL HE CAN PULL OUT
THE MASSIVE BOULDER

HE FAILED TO MOVE
WITH HIS CABLE.

Dustin: IT'S A MONSTER.

Narrator:
TIME FOR WES' NEW INVENTION.

Wes: SO THIS IS GONNA BE
OUR FIRST TEST FOR IT.

HOPEFULLY IT WORKS LIKE
WE WANT IT TO.

Dustin: ALRIGHT.
GET YOUR TOY.

WHAT ARE YOU CALLING
THAT DAMN THING ANYWAY?

SUPER CLAW?
SUPER CLAW.

SUPER CLAW.

SUPER CLAW?
AWESOME.

LET'S GET THAT SUPER CLAW
DOWN HERE PLEASE.

COPY THAT.

LET'S GET THIS ROCK OUT
SO LET'S FIND OUT.

I'M GONNA GO AHEAD
AND SEND THIS THING TO YOU.

GIVE IT A TRY.

SURE HOPING THIS WORKS
THE WAY I PLANNED IT TO.

COMING DOWN
ON THE SUPER CLAW.

WELL, I PAINTED IT
BRIGHT YELLOW,

SO HOPEFULLY YOU
ALL CAN SEE IT EASIER.

I GOT IT.

ALRIGHT.

LITTLE BIT MORE.
RIGHT THERE.

COPY THAT.



ALRIGHT.
THAT'S ONE SIDE.

ALRIGHT.
RIGHT THERE.

I THINK.
I THINK.

COPY THAT.

I'VE GOT TENSION ON IT.

ALRIGHT.
I'M GONNA GET BACK [BLEEP]

BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW.

OKAY.
COPY THAT.

LET ME KNOW WHEN
YOU'RE ALL CLEAR.

GO AHEAD.
DO YOUR THING.

ALRIGHT.
COMING UP ON THE SUPER CLAW.



WHOA, LOOK AT THAT!
[BLEEP]

YEAH, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT
WE WANTED IT TO DO.

THAT'S A NICE-SIZE ROCK.

OH, HO, YEAH, IT AIN'T
GONNA FALL OUT.

THERE'S NO WAY.

AWESOME.
AWESOME. YEAH.

GOOD.
THAT LOOKS REAL GOOD, MAN.

I LOVE IT.

Carlos: HELL YEAH!

I LOVE IT, MAN.

I LOVE IT.

WELL, WHATEVER IT TAKES
TO MAKE THIS JOB EASIER

WE NEED TO HAPPEN.
THAT'S BEAUTIFUL, MAN!

Dustin: THAT'S GONNA MAKE
MY LIFE EASIER.

THAT'S SO COOL, DUDE.

YEAH.

IT'S GONNA STEP OUR GAME
UP PRETTY HARD, MAN.

Carlos: WHOO!

THAT'S AWESOME, WES.

[ LAUGHING ]

THAT'S FREAKING
AWESOME, MAN!

Wes: THAT'S
A NICE-SIZED ROCK, BOYS.

THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN
A PAIN IN THE ASS

TO GET OUT WITH CABLES.

YEAH.

I JUST SLIPPED IT RIGHT OVER.

WES...

THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING
FRICKING THING

IN THE WORLD, DUDE.

CONGRATULATIONS.

IT WORKS PRETTY GOOD,
DOESN'T IT?

PRETTY GOOD?

IT WORKS AWESOME, DUDE.

IT SAVES US TIME.

THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS.

WE KNOW AS WE GET DEEPER DOWN,
WE'RE GONNA BE DEALING

WITH A LOT MORE
OF THESE LARGE BOULDERS,

SO ANYTHING THAT
HELPS US IS GOOD.

I'M HAPPY.

I MEAN, IT'S GAME ON NOW.



Narrator: UP AHEAD...

Fred: ENGINE DIED.

Man:
SCUBA RING IS OUT OF AIR.

TERMINATE.

TERMINATE THE DIVE.

OUR SITE IS DOWN RIGHT NOW.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING
UP HERE, MAN?

I NEED SOME HELP.

Dustin: [BLEEP]
IT'S INCREDIBLE.

IT'S THE BEST
WE'VE EVER DONE EVER.



Narrator:
AT FRED'S TWO FISH MINE SITE,

PAUL REPLACES THE BROKEN CABLE

TO GET BACK TO DREDGING
AND BACK ON THE GOLD.

NOW WE GOT A NICE NEW,
FRESH CABLE ON THAT WINCH.

FEEL MUCH BETTER ABOUT THAT.

FRED GOT US A NEW CABLE.
WE PUT NEW CABLE ON IT.

NOW WE'RE GOOD TO GO
FOR A WHILE.

WE GOT TWICE AS MUCH CABLE
ON THERE NOW THAN WE HAD,

SO WE GOT PLENTY OF ROOM
TO KEEP MOVING UPSTREAM.

ANY OF THOSE BOULDERS THAT ARE
IN FRONT OF US, NO PROBLEM.

WE CAN HOOK UP TO THEM, AND
WE CAN PULL THEM BEHIND US NOW.

Narrator: FRED USES AN OLD
TECHNIQUE TO SPLICE A LOOP,

SO THEY CAN ATTACH IT
TO THE HOOK.

-IT'S A LOST ART.
-YEP.

PROBABLY LEARNED THAT
WHEN I WAS WORKING

AT A REFINERY
IN CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS.

I WAS A WELDER'S HELPER,

BUT ALSO HELPED BOILERMAKERS
WITH PIPE FITTERS,

AND, OF COURSE, IN TEXAS,
THEY'RE CALLED A TEXAS SPLICE.

Paul: THAT IS A STRONG LOOP
RIGHT THERE.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW
HOW TO DO THIS

EXCEPT THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE
AND WORK IN THE OIL FIELD.

BRING THE DOWNSTREAM
WINCH IN.

-ALRIGHT.
-A LITTLE BIT.

RIGHT THERE.
-ALRIGHT.

-THAT'S GOOD.
-ALRIGHT.

THIS IS A LITTLE BIT STRONGER
THAN IT WAS BEFORE NOW.

FRED BRAIDED THAT CABLE.

NO CHANCE OF THAT COMING APART.

WE'RE READY.

FINALLY.

Ryan:
PAUL IS GETTING IN THE WATER,

AND I HOPE BY THE END
OF THE DAY,

WE MIGHT SEE A LITTLE SPECK
OF THE SHINY STUFF.



Fred: WE GOT WARM WATER.

ALL SYSTEMS ARE WORKING FINE.

IF YOU'RE IN THE WATER DREDGING,

THERE IS A POSSIBILITY
OF GETTING SOME GOLD.

IF YOU'RE NOT DREDGING, ZERO.

I'M READY TO GET IN.

I'M JUST READY TO GET DOWN
THERE, HAVE A GOOD DAY.





YEAH, YOU'RE HEADING IN THE
RIGHT DIRECTION RIGHT THERE.

THERE OUGHT TO BE A HOLE
ABOUT RIGHT THERE.

YEAH, THERE'S A BUNCH OF SMALL
GRAVEL RIGHT HERE, TOO.

YEP.

Narrator: PAUL TAKES OVER,

DREDGING DOWN
TO THE LOWEST POINT

IN THE BEDROCK
WHERE THE GOLD SHOULD SIT.

Kayla:
HOW YOU DOING, PAUL?

Paul:
I'M DOING PRETTY GOOD.

Ryan: WE NEED A SLUICE BOX
FULL OF GOLD TODAY.

ALRIGHT.

DID YOU GET ALL THAT,
PAUL?

WE ALL GOT BILLS TO PAY.

COPY THAT.

Fred: KICK SOME ASS.

KICK SOME ASS.

GOT TO FIND
THAT LOW POINT.

YEAH.

RATTLE IT AROUND,
WHEREVER IT GOES.

A ROCK HIT
SOMETHING BACK HERE.

I SENT A COUPLE
BIG ONES DOWN.

YEAH, I MEAN,
THEY LITERALLY BANG

ON THE SLUICE BOX
BACK HERE.

MUST BE ALL THEM
NUGGETS.

THAT'LL BE NICE.

NOW THE RACE IS ON.

LET'S SEE WHO CAN GET
THE MOST GOLD OUT.

TWO DREDGES OR ONE DREDGE
FROM THE SMALL CREW.

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY.

THE TURTLE WINS THE RACE.

SLOW AND STEADY.

Narrator: FRED BELIEVES DREDGING
THE SHALLOW PLUNGE POOLS

ON HIS WAY TOWARDS THE WATERFALL
WILL GET HIM MORE GOLD.



Ryan: OH, DIVER UP.

Paul:
I HEARD AN ENGINE DIE.

I'M RUNNING OUT OF AIR.

ENGINE DIED.
GET UP.

GET UP.
THE ENGINE DIED.

TERMINATE IT.

TERMINATE THE DIVE.

Narrator: SUDDEN ENGINE FAILURE
CUTS OFF PAUL'S AIR SUPPLY.

GOT THIS.

LET'S GET HIM UNPLUGGED
RIGHT AWAY

AND GET HIS WEIGHT BELT
OFF QUICKLY.

Kayla: YOU'RE GOOD?

OKAY.

DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

ENGINE QUIT.
GET OUT.

SO THAT'S WHAT WE DID.



THERE'S A HOLE
RIGHT THERE.

Ryan: I MEAN, IT MUST HAVE
BLEW THAT MAIN SEAL, HUH?

WE'RE MISSING A BOLT
RIGHT THERE.

I THINK.
-THAT'S WHAT I THINK IT IS.

-I THINK WE'RE MISSING TWO.
-RIGHT HERE. RIGHT HERE.

NO, RIGHT HERE
AND RIGHT BELOW.

THESE TWO.

Paul: OH, IT IS.
IT'S MISSING THE HEAD BOLT.

-YEAH.
-MISSING ONE, TWO...

THREE, FOUR.

THERE'S ANOTHER ONE DOWN
THERE MAYBE.

FOUR THAT I CAN SEE.

[ WHISTLES ]
THAT IS MAJOR SERIOUS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

IF THEY JUST VIBRATED OUT OR...

THIS ONE HERE
IS DEFINITELY MISSING.

WE HAVE VIBRATED ABOUT THREE
OR FOUR BOLTS

OUT OF THE BRAND-NEW ENGINE.

THEY, EVIDENTLY, WERE NOT
TORQUED DOWN PROPERLY.

THEY'VE BEEN VIBRATING
OUT LITTLE BY LITTLE.

WE DIDN'T NOTICE IT.

Narrator: THE CRANKCASE KEEPS
VITAL OIL AROUND THE CRANKSHAFT

TO PREVENT IT FROM SEIZING.

WHEN THE BOLTS CAME LOOSE,
THE OIL ESCAPED,

TRIGGERING A SAFETY SENSOR,
WHICH SHUT DOWN THE ENGINE.

WHERE'S THAT BLOWN UP ENGINE
FROM LAST YEAR?

-OH, YEAH.
-WHAT'S THAT?

THE BLOWN-UP ENGINE?
DUSTIN HAS GOT IT.

WE GET THAT BACK, WE CAN PULL
THE BOLTS OUT OF THAT

AND USE THOSE BOLTS.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA
TO ME.

-YEAH.
-TELL YOU WHAT.

LET'S GET ON THE RADIO AND SEE
IF WE CAN GET AHOLD OF DUSTIN.

WE'VE GOT AN OLD MOTOR
LIKE THAT,

BUT IT'S GOT THE BOLTS TO IT.

WE'LL SEE IF WE CAN FIND
THE BOLTS FOR IT,

AND GET SOME BOLTS BACK IN
AND GET BACK IN OPERATION.

RIGHT NOW, THAT'S OUR ONLY HOPE.

IF WE HAVE TO TRY TO GET
SOMETHING FROM TOWN

OR ANYWHERE ELSE, IT'S GOING
TO BE WEEKS TO MONTHS.

FRED TO DUSTIN OR ANYBODY
ON THE DIVE CREW

DOWN THERE AT DUSTIN'S.

IT'S ME, JAMES.

JAMES, THIS IS FRED.

WE BLEW SOME BOLTS OUT OF ONE
OF OUR BRAND-NEW ENGINES.

WE'RE SHUT DOWN.

DO YOU HAVE THE OLD ENGINE
ANYWHERE

UP AT YOUR DIVE SITE?

YES, WE DO.

MAYBE WE COULD GET
SOME BOLTS OUT OF IT.

MAYBE WHEN
WE GET THROUGH TODAY.

I SUPPOSE WHEN WE GET
THROUGH TODAY,

WE'LL SEE
WHAT DUSTIN SAYS.

APPARENTLY THE THING IS READY,
AVAILABLE.

I'M NOT GONNA WAIT FOR...
THEY'RE PLAYING GAMES.

WELL, OUR SITE
IS DOWN RIGHT NOW.







HEY, FRED.
WHAT'S GOING ON, MAN?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING
UP HERE, MAN?

I NEED SOME HELP.
WHAT HAPPENED?

FROM THE OLD MOTOR
UP HERE, MAN.

-WHAT HAPPENED?
-WE BLEW UP.

YOU BLEW UP
YOUR BRAND-NEW ENGINES?

A BRAND-NEW ENGINE.

Narrator: HALF A DAY'S TRAVEL
FROM THE NEAREST PARTS STORE,

FRED'S COME TO SCAVENGE
FROM SON DUSTIN.

WE LOST FOUR CRANKCASE BOLTS
ON THE SHAFT SIDE.

YOU KNOW HOW HARD THEM THINGS
ARE TO GET?

I DO.
GOD.

THAT'S GOT EXACTLY
WHAT I NEED ON IT.

JUST GO AHEAD
AND TAKE THAT THING.

WELL, I'LL BRING YOU
THE CARCASS BACK.

JUST LEAVE ME THE GAS CAP

BECAUSE WE'RE GONNA
PROBABLY NEED THAT.

WE'RE GONNA NEED PARTS
OFF IT, TOO,

SO LET'S JUST
KEEP IT AROUND, HUH?

YEP.

I HOPE IT CAN HELP, FRED.

ALRIGHT.

GOT TO GET YOU BACK
AND RUNNING.

-THANK YOU NOW.
-YEAH.

ALRIGHT.

APPRECIATE IT.





ALRIGHT, FRED.
YOU GOT A COPY?

Fred: GO.

WE'RE DOWN HERE
READY AND WAITING.

YOU CAN SEND THAT ENGINE
DOWN ANYTIME.

HE'S FIXING TO SEND US
THAT ENGINE DOWN.

WHEN WE GET IT DOWN HERE,
WE'LL TAKE THOSE HEAD BOLTS OUT,

PUT THEM IN THE ONE
ON THE DREDGE

AND PUT SOME OIL IN IT,

AND HOPEFULLY IT FIRES
RIGHT BACK UP.

OH, HERE IT COMES.

Kayla: ALRIGHT. WATCH OUT.
WATCH OUT. WATCH OUT.

NICE.

THAT SAVED THE DAY.

GLAD DUSTIN HAD THAT
BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WEEKS

TO MONTHS TO EVEN GET
THE PARTS THAT WE NEEDED.

ACTUALLY WE GOT TO HAVE
ALL THESE BOLTS.

I THINK WE'VE ONLY GOT ONE BOLT
ON THE OTHER ENGINE

THAT'S HOLDING THIS --
THAT HEAD ON.

SO ALL THESE OTHER BOLTS
VIBRATED OUT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW A BOLT

THAT SIZE
VIBRATED OUT OF THAT ENGINE.

WE'LL FIND OUT REAL QUICK
WHETHER IT'S GONNA WORK OR NOT.

Paul: HOPEFULLY THIS WILL TAKE
CARE OF OUR PROBLEM.

SO WE'VE GOT SOME THREAD GLUE
FOR THEM.

GET A LITTLE BIT OF THAT STUFF
ON THERE,

GET THEM BOLTS BACK IN,

AND IT SHOULD GLUE THEM IN WHERE
THEY WON'T VIBRATE BACK OUT.

OKAY, YOU GOT THAT ONE?
-YEAH.

THE TWO BOTTOM ONES ARE IN.

THAT'S WHY YOU KEEP
EVERYTHING UP HERE

BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE GONNA NEED

OFF OF SOMETHING ELSE.

WHAT A LIFE SAVER.

TIME TO FIRE THIS THING UP,
SEE IF IT WORKS.

[ MOTOR STARTS ]

Ryan: COME ON, BABY.

COME ON, BABY.

[ MOTOR REVVING ]

[ LAUGHS ]
-YEE-HOO!

-YEAH!
-YES!

HEY, WE'RE BACK
IN BUSINESS.

ALRIGHT.

GO GET YOUR SUIT ON.

GET IN THAT WATER.
-OKAY.

Paul: ALRIGHT.
BACK TO WORK.

HOPEFULLY I CAN HIT BEDROCK

AND HOPEFULLY
FIND SOME MORE GOLD.

WHAT'S THE MATERIAL
LOOKING LIKE DOWN THERE?

IT'S LIKE A CRISP GRANITE.

IT'S A BUNCH OF GRAY
AND BLACK AND WHITE ROCK.

Ryan: I LIKE THAT.
SOUNDS GREAT.

GOT A LOT OF BIG BOULDERS
HERE TO MOVE, THOUGH.

WHOO-WHEE.

Kayla: BRING HOME THAT BACON.
I MEAN, GOLD.

I HOPE SO.
HA, HA.



Narrator: A QUARTER OF A MILE
UP THE CREEK,

DUSTIN IS ON A DOUBLE DIVE
ONCE AGAIN.

THIS TIME WITH JAMES.

Wes: COMING DOWN.

PUSHING HARD TO GET TO GOLD.

Dustin: PERFECT SPOT, MAN.

GOLD, GOLD, GOLD.

THIS ROCK HERE.

COME ON UP.

UP, UP, UP, UP, UP, UP.

James: ALRIGHT.
WE GOT THE BASKET COMING UP.

BEAUTIFULLY DONE, JAMES.
BEAUTIFULLY DONE.



SUPER CLAW
DOWN HERE PLEASE.

SUPER CLAW COMING DOWN.

WATCH YOUR HEAD.
-ALRIGHT.



DIVER CLEAR.

COMING UP EASY.

NICE, MAN.

THAT'S A DAMN GOOD LIFT
RIGHT THERE.

I LOVE THIS THING.

OH, CLOSE.

GOOD-LOOKING MATERIAL
COMING OVER.

KEEP HER GOING.

THAT'S GOT GOLD IN IT.

GOLD.

WELL, IT'S BEEN...

YOU ALL MOVED
A LOT OF MATERIAL TODAY.

[ INDISTINCT CONVERSATION ]



THEY'VE MOVED AN INCREDIBLE
AMOUNT OF MATERIAL.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MANY TONS
THEY'VE DONE,

SO IT'S BEEN A REALLY GOOD DAY.

I CAN'T WAIT TO LOOK
IN THE SLUICES

AND SEE WHAT GOLD IS IN THERE

BECAUSE IT'S BEEN
A SPECTACULAR DAY TODAY.



Carlos: YEAH, JAMES.

ALRIGHT.

GOOD [BLEEP] MAN.

JAMES AND I PUSHED
EACH OTHER TODAY.

OH, MAN, WE MOVED SOME ROCK.

COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW WELL
THAT SUPER CLAW WORKED, MAN.

THAT WAS A LOT OF WORK
AND WE MOVED TONS --

LITERAL TONS
AND TONS OF ROCK.

Carlos: LOOK.
ALL RIGHT HERE, THERE'S GOLD.

THERE'S A LOT OF GOLD
IN HERE, DUDE.

THE WHOLE THING IS
CHOCK-FULL OF GOLD.

THAT'S SOME PRETTY
NICE-SIZED PIECES RIGHT THERE.

WE'VE NEVER LOOKED IN HERE
AND SEEN THAT MUCH GOLD

JUST SITTING ALONG
THE TOP LIKE THAT.

THERE'S A BONANZA
DOWN THERE.

-YEAH, I AGREE WITH YOU.
-YEAH.

WE MUST HAVE STARTED DIGGING
IN THE RIGHT SPOT.

FINALLY.

-FOUND GOLD RIGHT HERE.
-WE GOT BIG GOLD.

Carlos: BIG GOLD.
[BLEEP]

YOU SEE ALL THAT GOLD OVER HERE?
-YEAH.

[ LAUGHING ]

Wes: I MEAN, WE PUT IN A LOT
OF YEARS HERE.

WE'VE LEARNED A LOT
OVER THE YEARS.

EVERY YEAR GETS BETTER.

THIS YEAR IS GONNA PAY
FOR ALL OF THOSE YEARS

THAT WE DIDN'T MAKE ANY MONEY.

I HOPE SO, MAN.

THIS IS LOOKING GOOD.

Carlos: LOOK AT IT.
LOOK AT IT.

LOOK AT ALL THE GOLD.

CHUNKY GOLD.
CHUNKY GOLD.

CHUNKY GOLD.

WE'RE GETTING THERE.

WE'RE FINALLY GETTING GOOD
AT THIS.

I'M GREAT AT DIGGING HOLES.

HORRIBLE AT FINDING GOLD
UNTIL NOW.

GOD, I HOPE THERE IS
A WHOLE BUNCH DOWN THERE.

I LOOK LIKE A LUNATIC
TO SOME PEOPLE.

HOPEFULLY I MAKE ENOUGH GOLD
TO WHERE I CAN BE ECCENTRIC

INSTEAD OF A LUNATIC.

Dustin:
I WANT EVERYBODY TO DO GOOD.

I DON'T BENEFIT FROM ANYONE
DOING POORLY EVER.

Narrator: UP AT HIGH CAMP NEAR
TWO FISH, IT'S BREAKFAST TIME.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD LOVE
TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS?

James: I LOVE DIVING
IN THAT WATERFALL.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL
AND THERE'S GOLD IN IT.

THAT ADDS TO IT.
IT'S LIKE WOW.

PARADISE IN THERE.

PART THE FEW THAT ACTUALLY
GET TO LIVE LIKE THIS,

SO I'M GLAD
EVERYBODY'S HERE,

AND I'M GLAD WE'RE ALL
SUPPORTING EACH OTHER.

WE MAY NOT BE RICH, BUT WE'RE
ONE OF THE 1 PERCENTERS

THAT LIVE WHAT WE LIKE DOING.

I COULD GO THE REST OF MY LIFE
AND DIG A BILLION HOLES

AND NEVER
ACTUALLY SUCCEED,

BUT, GOD, JUST THINK,

AT SOME POINT,
SOMETHING HAS TO HAPPEN.

SOMETHING HAS TO GO YOUR WAY
AT SOME POINT, RIGHT?

WE'RE DEFINITELY HEADED THERE
THIS YEAR.

OH, YEAH.



IT LOOKED LIKE THERE
WAS QUITE A BIT OF GOLD

IN THE INSPECTION MAT
WHEN WE DID OUR CLEANOUT.

SO I GOT A FEELING
WE'RE GONNA HAVE

A PRETTY GOOD AMOUNT
OF GOLD IN HERE.

I'M HOPING ANYWAY.

Narrator:
WES STARTS TO PROCESS

ALL THE CONCENTRATE
DUSTIN'S CREW HAS PRODUCED

FROM THE FIRST
MONTH OF THEIR SEASON.

Carlos: THERE IT
IS ALREADY, DUDE.

[ LAUGHING ]

I'M SORRY.
I GOT TO LOOK.

WOW.
-HELL YEAH, FELLAS.

Wes:
THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.

AND I CAN LOOK
IN THESE SCOOPS

AND STILL I CAN SEE GOLD
ALL THROUGH THIS SCOOP

RIGHT THERE
AS I'M LOOKING AT.

YEAH. I'M PRETTY EXCITED
TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.

I MEAN, THIS IS A CONTINUAL
STREAM OF GOLD

COMING OUT OF THAT THING.
LOOK AT THAT.

BAM, BAM, BAM.

EVERY SCOOP IS JUST GOLD.

IF YOU WORK HARD ENOUGH,
THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS.

Dustin:
THAT'S LOOKING GREAT, MAN.

Narrator:
JUST DOWNSTREAM,

FRED'S CREW
IS FINISHING THEIR CLEANOUT,

SEARCHING FOR SIGNS
THAT HIS TWO FISH CLAIM

IS HIDING
A MOUNTAIN OF GOLD.

Fred: BASICALLY WHAT
WE'RE DOING WITH THIS,

WE'RE CONCENTRATING
THE CONCENTRATE.

JUST FEEDING A LITTLE BIT
AT A TIME.

SOMETIMES WHEN YOU PUT
SOME UP THERE,

YOU SEE THE GOLD STICKING.

Ryan: SOME NICE
LITTLE FINDS IN THERE.

Paul: I SEE THAT.

YOU WATCH RIGHT HERE.

THERE WILL BE
A LITTLE ACCUMULATION

OF LITTLE PIECES
OF GOLD RIGHT THERE.

Kayla:
THAT'S INTERESTING.

Narrator:
FRED RUNS THE CONCENTRATE

THROUGH HIS CLEANUP SYSTEM.

THEY'RE ALL DOWN ABOUT AS FAR
AS THEY'RE GONNA GO.

THAT'S ABOUT IT.

WE JUST CLEAN IT UP
AND PAN IT.

WE JUST GONNA FAST-PAN
THIS THING.

SEE WHAT'S DOWN IN THE BOTTOM
OF THIS PAN HERE.

Paul: WE'VE PROBABLY GOT MORE
GOLD THAN WE THOUGHT WE'D HAVE.

PROBABLY SO.

ANY GOLD AT ALL IS BETTER
THAN NO GOLD AT ALL.

MAN, THAT'S SOME NICE
PICKERS IN THERE.

LOOK AT THAT ONE.
THAT'S GORGEOUS.

YOU KNOW, A FEW OF THOSE AREN'T
SMASHED VERY FLAT, YOU KNOW?

NO, THEY'RE NOT,
SO THAT JUST MEANS

WE'RE REALLY CLOSE
TO THE SOURCE.

I THINK WE GOT A LOT MORE GOLD
THAN WE THOUGHT WE DID.

EVERYBODY SAYS, "OH,
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE GOLD."

THE HELL IT AIN'T.

WHEN YOU SEE THAT GOLD,
YOU'LL GET EXCITED ABOUT IT.

IT'S NICE.

ALRIGHT.
UP THE HILL WE GO.

IS THAT GOLD READY YET?
I'M GETTING AWFUL HUNGRY.

HEY, FRED.
WHAT'S GOING ON, MAN?

THAT'S OUR
FIRST CLEANUP, FRED.

WOW.

THAT'S ALL WE GOT.

-OH, MAN.
-IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD.

Carlos: THAT'S REAL GOOD.

YEAH.
THAT'S IT.

THAT'S SOME GOOD,
CHUNKY GOLD.

NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
THAT IS IT.

I WAS HOPING TO GET DOWN
INTO A POCKET,

AND FIND MAYBE
2 OR 3 OUNCES OUT OF IT.

LOOK.
WE GOT TWO DIVERS NOW.

WE'RE RUNNING TWO MACHINES
IN A GIANT PLUNGE POOL.

COME ON.

YOU'RE NOT COMPARING
THE SAME THING.

THAT'S A LOT BETTER
THAN I THOUGHT

YOU WERE GONNA DO, FRED.

WE'RE GONNA FIND OUT
WHAT THIS WEIGHS.

I'M CURIOUS.

THIS IS JUST IN THE OVERBURDEN
AND OFF THE TOP.

-ALRIGHT.
-LOOKS GOOD, MAN.

Carlos:
THAT LOOKS REALLY GOOD.

ALRIGHT, MAN.
WE GOT ALMOST AN OUNCE.

Narrator: DUSTIN
AND HIS CREW HAVE BANKED

NEARLY $1,400 WORTH OF GOLD --

A GOOD SIGN THAT THERE'S
A MASSIVE AMOUNT

DEEPER DOWN ON THE BEDROCK.

LET'S GET TO THE BOTTOM
AND I BET

THERE'S GONNA BE A LOT MORE.
-YEP.

Wes: THAT'S A BETTER START
THAN WE'VE EVER HAD.

I MEAN...

Fred: I AM GLAD TO SEE
YOU GUYS GOT THAT.

WE'RE GETTING BETTER
AT THIS.

WE'RE LEARNING.

EVERY YEAR HOPEFULLY.
SLOWLY.

THAT FIRST CLEANOUT
IS GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER.

THAT'S A GREAT
FIRST CLEANUP.

-AWESOME START.
-HELL YEAH.

-WE'RE WORKING ON IT.
-ALRIGHT.

Wes: WE'LL HIT IT HARD
TOMORROW, BOYS.

Fred:
DUSTIN HAD A FABULOUS CLEANOUT.

I'VE SEEN IN WHOLE SEASONS

THAT WE JUST DIDN'T
GET THAT MUCH GOLD.

THEY'RE HITTING GOLD
SOUNDS LIKE EVERY DAY,

SO I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR THEM.

ALMOST AN OUNCE
ON OUR FIRST CLEANUP.

YOU GOT TO REMEMBER.

WE GOT THAT GOLD
ON THE TOP LEVEL,

SO WE'VE STILL GOT MANY,
MANY, MANY FEET TO GO

UNTIL WE HIT FRICKING BEDROCK.

WHEN IT HITS BEDROCK,

THAT'S WHERE OUR GOLD
IS GONNA LOOK BEAUTIFUL, MAN.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
NOT JUST FLAKES

LIKE WHAT WE GOT RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT NUGGETS.

Dustin: IT'S THE BEST
WE'VE EVER DONE EVER.

IT'S INCREDIBLE.

A FULL...ALMOST A FULL OUNCE,
AND WE'RE ON OUR WAY.

THAT MEANS THERE'S GOLD
IN THIS HOLE.

WE'RE GONNA CONTINUE TO DIG IT.

WE'RE GONNA HIT THE BOTTOM,
AND HOPEFULLY WITH ANY LUCK,

THERE'S GONNA BE
HUNDREDS OF OUNCES

INSTEAD OF AN OUNCE
OR 10 OUNCES OR 20 OUNCES.

HUNDREDS IS WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR
AND HOPEFULLY THAT'S DOWN THERE.



-YOU READY?
-GO.

Dustin: WOO-HOO-HOO.

Narrator: ON THE NEXT
"GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER"...

HOW BAD
DO YOU WANT TO BE HERE?

I GET TO GO DIVING
ON MY BIRTHDAY.

[ LAUGHING ]

Fred: JACKPOT!

I HIT THE BOTTOM.

Dustin: WE MUST BE CRAZY.

-DIVER UP. DIVER UP.
-WARMING UP.

STEAM.

Wes: COULD HAVE KILLED
ANY ONE OF US.

MINERS NOTHING.
ALASKA ONE.

COME LOOK IN THE BOX.

-RAINING GOLD.
-[ LAUGHS ] HELL YEAH!

I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS
LIKE THIS.

Ryan: THIS IS EXACTLY
WHAT WE NEEDED.
