♪♪ -HI, GUYS.
-HI, PARKER. Narrator: AT SCRIBNER CREEK,
PARKER SCHNABEL AND HIS CREW ARE READY
FOR THEIR WEEKLY WEIGH-IN. IT DEFINITELY WASN’T COOL FOR US
DOWN AT THE CLUSTER CUT. REALLY PUT US
IN A TOUGH SPOT THIS WEEK. WHEN PARKER DECIDED TO GO BACK
TO THE LAST CUT TO TRY AND GET AN EXTRA
THOUSAND OUNCES FROM THE GROUND
HE MINED LAST YEAR, HE PUT A MASSIVE STRAIN
ON THE CREW. Mitch:
BUT IT MOVED A LOT OF DIRT AND HOPEFULLY THERE’S
A LOT OF GOLD IN THERE. WELL, GET USED TO IT,
MITCH. [ LAUGHTER ] PARKER’S ABOUT TO FIND OUT
IF HIS GAMBLE HAS PAID OFF. ALL RIGHT. LET’S SEE
HOW THE WEEK WAS. FIRST UP, GOLD FROM THE GROUND
HE OWNS, THE CLUSTER CUT. LAST WEEK IT DELIVERED
AROUND 200 OUNCES. 50, 80, 90, 140, 150, 180, 200… 30, 270, 280. NO WAY, KEEP GOING.
-KEEP GOING. KEEP GOING. 290, 300, 309.1. [BLEEP] YOU. [ LAUGHTER ] WELL DONE. WORTH OVER $430,000, MITCH’S SKELETON CREW HAS
DELIVERED. MIGHT’VE BEEN SHORT ON MANPOWER,
BUT MAN [BLEEP] THE OLD 750 DOWN THERE,
WE HAD THE HORSEPOWER TO DO IT. [ EXCLAMATIONS ]
-OH, THERE’S A PAN! YOU SURE YOU CAN LIFT THAT,
OLD MAN? Narrator:
NOW IT’S TIME FOR THE LAST CUT. NICE TO SEE SOME GOLD
FINALLY COME OUT OF HER. Parker:
HOW HIGH DOES OUR SCALE GO? 20, 30, 40, 50. WHOO! 170, 200, 220, 280, 300, 320, 360, 376.9. WOO-HOO. YEAH. [ LAUGHTER ] Narrator: PARKER IS ON TRACK TO
HIT HIS THOUSAND-OUNCE GOAL IN JUST THREE WEEKS. I THINK IT’S SAFE TO SAY THAT
CUT WAS DEFINITELY NOT DONE. -685?
-YES. -IN A WEEK.
-IN A WEEK. THAT’S A PRETTY
[BLEEP] GOOD WEEK. Narrator: PARKER’S GAMBLE HAS
PAID OFF BIG. WITH A SPIKE IN THE GOLD PRICE, HIS BEST GOLD HAUL OF THE SEASON IS WORTH
AROUND A MILLION DOLLARS. SO, FOR THE SEASON, WE JUST
BROKE 3,000 — 3,083 OUNCES. -SWEET.
-WICKED. -HOLY [BLEEP]
-HOPE WE KEEP IT GOING. I HATE TO SAY ANYTHING
TOO SOON, BUT… WE’RE DEFINITELY ON TRACK
FOR A HELL OF A SEASON. CHEERS, GUYS. THEY’LL KEEP ROCKING. [ LAUGHTER ]
