♪♪ Mitch: WELL, WHAT’S
THE VERDICT, BOYS? WAS THERE ANY GOLD
IN THAT TEST? Narrator: PARKER’S TWO NEW
FOREMEN COME TO THE GOLD ROOM TO FIND OUT THE RESULTS
OF HIS 12-HOUR BEDROCK TEST. YOU KNOW WHAT I DID?
I COVERED IT, I DIDN’T MEASURE IT,
I DIDN’T LOOK AT IT. IT’S GOING TO BE
A SURPRISE TO EVERYONE. THE GREAT BEDROCK
AUDIT OF 2019. [ LAUGHTER ] SO I’LL GO GET THE BEAST,
AND YOU GUYS CAN START HAGGLING. SO OKAY, BEFORE WE GET
THIS ON THE SCALE, WE’VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT
HOW MANY OUNCES DO WE NEED HERE
TO MAKE IT WORTHWHILE. I KNOW THAT WE ALL HAVE
DIFFERING OPINIONS ON WHAT IS A MEASURE OF SUCCESS
HERE OR FAILURE OR WHATEVER. FOR ME, IT SHOULD BE 12 OUNCES. AN OUNCE AN HOUR.
BUT YOU LOOK AT THE AREA OF THAT CUT,
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT LEAVING BEHIND HUNDREDS
AND HUNDREDS OF OUNCES OF GOLD OVER THE COURSE
OF THE SEASON, RIGHT? YEAH. I WANT TO GET IT
ON A SCALE AND THEN HAVE
THIS CONVERSATION, REALLY. OKAY, WEIGH IT UP. THROW IT ON THE SCALE? YEAH. -OH, WHAT DO WE GOT?
-FOUR OUNCES. -FOUR!

PARKER’S TARGET FOR THE BEDROCK TEST
AND WORTH JUST $5,600. OH. Parker: FOUR OUNCES
HM. AT THAT,
WE AREN’T MAKING MONEY, SO WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE
SLUICING PILES OF BEDROCK. YOU KNOW, YOU GOT
TO TEST THINGS, RIGHT? AND THAT’S
WHAT WE DID THERE. YEAH, I [BLEEP] UP. PUT THAT DISAPPOINTMENT
AWAY AND SHOW US SOME REAL GOLD. I’LL SHOW YOU
SOME REAL GOLD. Narrator: NEXT UP, THEIR TOTAL
FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. Chris: THIS IS MORE LIKE WHAT
WE SHOULD BE DOING. 20, 45, 60, 70. 90, KEEP GOING. 120, 130, 150. KEEP HER GOING,

-OH, YEAH. -300.
-YOU’RE KIDDING. 355.4. Narrator: WITH GOLD PRICES UP
BY 20% THIS YEAR, IT’S WORTH ALMOST
HALF A MILLION DOLLARS. [ CHUCKLES ]
GOOD JOB, BUDDY. THAT’S AMAZING. WELL OVER TWO OUNCES AN HOUR.
THAT’S REALLY GOOD. THAT’S GOING TO BE
A TOUGH ONE TO BEAT. THROUGH THE HISTORY
OF BIG RED, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST
CLEAN UPS IT’S EVER HAD. WE’RE AT
669 OUNCES ALREADY. Narrator:
WORTH ALMOST $940,000. WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO SQUEEZE
5,000 OUNCES OUT OF THAT CROWN
DOWN THERE THIS SEASON. AS LONG AS WE JUST KEEP
THE CREAM OF THE CROP. KEEP DOING
WHAT YOU’RE DOING BECAUSE YOU GUYS
ARE DOING GREAT. I’M ACTUALLY LOVING
HAVING YOU GUYS RUN THIS. IT’S GOOD.
I’LL DRINK TO THAT. ALL RIGHT.
GOOD JOB, BOYS. -THANKS.
