[ CARLOS YELLING INDISTINCTLY ]

FINDING GOLD IS A WEIGHT
LIFTED OFF OUR SHOULDERS,

FINDING GOLD IS A GOOD
POSSIBILITY FOR A GOOD WINTER.

I DIDN'T BRING
A CONTAINER YET.

YOU DIDN'T THINK
WE WOULD NEED IT.

Narrator: AFTER A DELAYED
START TO HIS SEASON,

DUSTIN'S HIT ON A CHUNKY NUGGET,

AND HE'S NOWHERE CLOSE TO
BEDROCK WHERE THE BIGGER GOLD

USUALLY LIES.

GONNA BE A LOT
MORE NUGGETS DOWN THERE.

IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT SEASON.

IN THE BOTTOM OF THIS THING

IF THIS THING IS AS DEEP
AS I HOPE IT IS,

THIS IS THE ONE
THAT'S GOING TO MAKE US RICH.

FIRST TIME IN THE WATER,

WE GOT
A BIG PRESSURE BOMB GOING.

IF YOU FALL IN THERE,

MORNIN', FRED, WHAT'S GOING ON?
WHAT'S UP?

HEY, DUS, WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO
GET OUR DREDGE IN THIS MORNING.

GOOD.

Narrator: THREE WEEKS INTO THEIR
SHORTENED SEASON,

BOTH CREWS SHOULD HAVE BEEN
DIVING FOR SEVEN WEEKS NOW,

BUT DUSTIN'S CREW
HAS COMPLETED ONE DIVE

AND FRED'S
HAS YET TO GET IN THE WATER.

HOW ARE YOU GUYS
DOING DOWN THERE?

-PRETTY GOOD.
-DID GOOD, MAN.

DID ALL RIGHT.
-OH, YEAH. YOU FIND ANY GOLD?

VERY FIRST THING WE FIND
A LITTLE BIT BIGGER

THAN A HALF-OUNCE NUGGET
JUST SITTING THERE, MAN.

-WOW.
-AND HE'S ONLY JUST TAKING

THE OVERBURDEN DOWN TO BEDROCK

COMES ROLLING
A DAMN HALF-OUNCE NUGGET

AND JUST COME
RIGHT DOWN THE BEDROCK.

-WOW.
-IT'S SHRANK A LITTLE BIT,

BUT...

CHECK THAT OUT, FRED.

THAT'S A NICE
PIECE OF GOLD THERE.

GOT A LITTLE WEIGHT TO IT.

WOW.

THAT'S THE FIRST NUGGET
I'VE EVER SEEN.

[BLEEP].

THAT'S WHAT
YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, BUDDY.

WELL, GLAD FOR YOU GUYS,
Y'ALL STRUCK FIRST.

YOW! OW...

DRAGOID WORKS PERFECT,
DOWN 20 FEET RIGHT NOW.

ALMOST.

ALL RIGHT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

HEY, GUYS, I HEARD THE BELL,
WE'RE GOING TO LET Y'ALL GO

AND GOOD LUCK TODAY.

ALL RIGHT.

WE SHOWED FRED OUR GOLD.

YOU COULD SEE IT PHYSICALLY
HURTS HIM

LIKE YOU'RE IN COMPETITION.

BUT I WANT HIM TO DO WELL.

WE'VE GOT A LATE START.

SEVERAL WEEKS BEHIND.
WE'LL CATCH UP.

DUSTIN, HE MIGHT FIND HIS STUFF

IN A LITTLE SHALLOW POOL
DOWN THERE.

WE GOT A DEEP ONE TO DIG.

WE'RE GOING TO BE THE GUYS
THAT FIND THE GOLD THIS YEAR.

LET'S GO MINING.

LET'S GO FIND SOME GOLD.

SAYOONARA!

Narrator: HALF A MILE FROM CAMP
AT THE TRIFECTA MINE SITE,

FRED IS FINALLY
GETTING IN THE WATER

ONE WEEK BEHIND DUSTIN.

Man: IT'S GOT TO GO --
IT'S GOING.

THERE YOU GO, ABOUT
SOMEWHERE IN THERE.

LAUNCH.
YEE-HOO!

Narrator: FRED IS COUNTING
ON HIS CUSTOM BUILT DREDGE

TO FINALLY GET HIM TO THE GOLD
HE'S BEEN SEARCHING FOR.

GOOD JOB, FELLOWS.

Narrator: FOR TWO SEASONS,
DUSTIN FORCED THE CREW

TO MINE UPSTREAM IN WHAT FRED
BELIEVES WAS THE WRONG SPOT.

FRED'S CONVINCED DOWNSTREAM
IS THE SITE

OF AN ANCIENT WATERFALL;
AT THE BOTTOM,

A MONSTER PILE
OF GOLD WORTH MILLIONS.

Fred: WE MINED TRIFECTA
FOR TWO YEARS.

WE ONLY GOT ABOUT 12
OR 13 OUNCES OUT OF THERE.

THIS IS WHERE THE GOLD IS --
DOWNSTREAM.

GOT THE GAS GOING ON.

THERE WE GO.

-OH, YEAH!
-FRED, CHECK IT OUT!

YEAH!

GOT WATER ON THIS SIDE!

YEP, IS COMING UP IN THE RIPPLES
JUST LIKE IT SHOULD BE.

OH, THAT'S NOT GOOD.

YEAH, THE MOST IMPORTANT MOTOR,

THAT'S THE ONE THAT RUNS
OUR AIR.

WE GOT SOMETHING
PLUGGING UP THE LINE.

OH, [BLEEP], WE GOT A BIG
PRESSURE BOMB GOING.

SHUT THIS ONE OFF.
WE GOTTA PUT A...

THERE'S NO, UH...

THERE'S NO POP OFF VALVE ON THIS
AIR TANK.

WE'RE MAXED OUT.

WE'RE CALLING 180, 200 PSI.

Narrator:
ONCE THEY'RE IN THE WATER,

THE DIVER WILL RELY ON THE VITAL
AIR SUPPLY FROM THE AIR TANK.

BY RELEASING AIR,
THE POP OFF VALVE KEEPS THE TANK

AT A CONSTANT PRESSURE
OF 50 PSI.

THE DAMAGED POP OFF VALVE FAILED
TO REGULATE THE AIR,

CAUSING A RISE IN PRESSURE
TO OVER 200 PSI.

ANY MORE AND THE TANK
COULD EXPLODE.

HELL OF A WAY
TO START THE SEASON.

YOU KNOW WHAT,
WE MIGHT HAVE TO TAKE A ONE

OFF THE OLD DREDGE.

ALL RIGHT, WELL,
THAT'S SHOT ANYWAY.

WE WANT EVERYTHING
WORKING PROPERLY.

WE CANNOT AFFORD TO BE LOSING
THE DIVER'S AIR.

Narrator: AFTER A LATE START,

AND JUST AS HE'S HOPED
TO MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME,

THIS DELAY PUTS FRED
EVEN FURTHER BEHIND.

Fred: THIS DREDGE
HAS GOT TO WORK.

WE JUST DON'T GET
TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS HOLE,

WE'RE JUST NOT GOING
TO GET ANY GOLD THIS YEAR.

IS DOWN THERE.

MY GOAL FOR TODAY IS
TO GET US BACK TO WHERE WE WERE.

I'D LIKE TO MAKE A HUGE HOLE
RIGHT HERE.

JUST A RIDICULOUS DIG.

ALL RIGHT, MAN,
LET'S GO.

Narrator: WINTER STORMS RAGED
THROUGH THE CREEK

AND THE HOLE THEY STARTED TO DIG
LAST SEASON HAS FILLED BACK IN.

THERE'S SOME
REALLY BAD WATER.

IT'S GOING TO BE DANGEROUS.

Narrator: AFTER THE BIGGEST
SNOWFALL IN A DECADE,

THE TORRENT RAGES AT OVER
300,000 GALLONS PER MINUTE,

THREE TIMES FASTER THAN
ANY OF THEM HAVE EVER DIVED IN.

Man: YOU HAVE A TETHER?

Carlos:
NOT YET, HOLD ON, STAND BY.

Narrator: TO DEAL WITH THE MOST
LETHAL DIVING CONDITIONS

SWEPT TO HIS DEATH
