Families from across America reach out to quarry and mining expert, Dave Turin. He helps to resurrect failing mines, so the owners can search for gold again!
With winter closing in, Dave and Lance hedge their bet with a mining district in the foothills of Mt. Denali. Back on the claim, the team break a gold record.
Dave tests positive for COVID and entrusts mechanic Nathan with a solo prospect deep in the wilderness. Equipment breakdowns force greenhorn Andrew to step up.
The team divides in the remote Idaho Rockies. Then, already behind schedule, Dave is forced to make a bet that can make or break the season.
Dave gets a lead on a remote claim in North-eastern Alaska, said to produce major nuggets. The team hope to surprise him with a successful prospect in Montana.
A lead in Montana keeps the crew's mining hopes alive in the lower 48. A Hail Mary prospect in Alaska becomes Dave's most promising ever.
Team Turin arrives in Alaska to mine their new Glacier Creek claim. The crew grapples with aging machinery as rookie Andrew gets his first taste of gold mining.
Dave brings his high-tech wash plant The Roach into the fight to increase production. But the crew faces two new dangerous foes: flood and mud.
The team runs two wash plants at the same time, but a water pump malfunctions, turning the cut into muddy soup. Dave turns to a local miner for help.
A major Alaskan rainstorm triggers a landslide that threatens Team Turin's camp. Dave has an idea that speeds up production but puts The Roach in a vulnerable position.
As Jason battles a flooded cut, Team Turin's latest super weapon, The Eagle, arrives in Alaska. The crew navigates it across the river by creating a mobile dam.
Team Turin prepares to fire up The Eagle for the first time, when Casey receives shocking news from home. The team must forge ahead as a skeleton crew.
Tensions mount when Dave and Jason clash on strategies to stay on the gold. And problems with the new wash plant put Chris in a vulnerable position.
With the team struggling, Dave's business partner observes the operation. But his presence creates tension when he identifies one of the miners as the weak link.
