♪♪ THIS THING IS A BEAST.
[ LAUGHS ] Narrator:
THE ENORMOUS 50-TON WASH PLANT PROCESSES A YARD OF DIRT
EVERY 12 SECONDS… WOW. …AND INCLUDES A NUGGET CATCH, PERFECT FOR RICK’S DUNCAN CREEK
OPERATION. THIS JUST SEEMS WAY
TOO HIGH CLASS FOR ME. I DON’T KNOW HOW I COULD EVER
AFFORD SOMETHING LIKE THIS. MAYBE
WE CAN MAKE A DEAL. THERE’S LANCE. SO YOU WANT TO PLAY
WITH THE BIG BOYS? -HOW’S IT GOING, LANCE?
-DOING GOOD. HOW YOU DOING,
FREDDY? DOING ALRIGHT,
GOOD TO SEE YOU. -RICK.
-LANCE. NICE TO MEET YOU. I’VE GOT A TON
OF GROUND TO RUN AND I JUST AIN’T GONNA
GET IT DONE WITH WHAT I’VE GOT, AND THIS RIGHT HERE
IS WHAT I NEED. WELL, THIS IS A PREMIUM PLANT,
AS YOU KNOW. IT’LL AT LEAST DO
300 AN HOUR. GOT RUBBER-LINED CHUTES.
YOU KNOW IT CATCHES GOLD. SLUICE BOXES
ARE TOP-NOTCH. YOU’RE NOT GOING TO FIND
A BETTER ONE AROUND. IT IS FOR SALE,
BUT IT’S GOING TO COST YOU. IT’S A HALF MILLION. HALF MILLION. YEAH, I DON’T HAVE THAT.
UM… HOW MUCH DID YOU
BRING WITH YOU? WELL, WHY DON’T I SHOW YOU
WHAT I DO HAVE? OKAY. SO I’VE GOT
150 OUNCES HERE. THAT’S PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING
I GOT ON THE SEASON SO FAR. Narrator: 150 OUNCES OF GOLD
IS WORTH $210,000. BY MY MATH, YOU’RE ABOUT
200 OUNCES SHORT. WHERE IS THE REST
OF THE 200? STILL IN THE GROUND. SO WHAT ARE
YOU PROPOSING? SOME KIND OF
AN INSTALLMENT DEAL. NO WAY. I-I CAN’T. HERE IS THE ISSUE. IT GOES TO THE YUKON,
YOU DON’T MAKE PAYMENTS, I GOT TO GET IT BACK HERE
TO THE STATES. IT’S A LOT OF MONEY
TO DO THAT. WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE
THAT’S IT. -ALL RIGHT. PLEASURE.
-WHOA. HE’S ALWAYS BEEN STRAIGHT UP
WITH ME, LANCE. AND OTHER PEOPLE
I’VE SEEN HIM DEAL WITH, HE’S ALWAYS BEEN STRAIGHT UP
FROM WHAT I’VE SEEN. IF I DIDN’T TRUST HIM, I WOULDN’T HAVE
BROUGHT HIM OVER HERE. Rick: IF I LEAVE YOU WITH THAT
AS A SHOW OF GOOD FAITH, I COULD GET YOU THE REST BY THE
END OF THE SEASON, NO PROBLEM. I’M TAKING
YOUR WORD ON IT, BUT IF I DON’T GET THE REST
AT THE END OF THE YEAR, I’M COMING UP THERE
AND I’M PULLING THE PLANT. YEAH, THAT MAKES IT REAL. YEAH. WELL, I LEAVE YOU WITH THAT
AND I LEAVE WITH THIS. OKAY. FREDDY, I HOPE I DON’T
COME TO REGRET THIS. YOU WON’T. -OKAY.
-THANKS, LANCE. THANKS.
-THANKS, LANCE. THANKS, FREDDY.
SEE YA. THAT’S A LOT OF MONEY
AND THAT SCARES ME AND NOW I’VE GOT NO CHOICE
BUT TO PRODUCE. OH, MAN. WELL IF WE’RE GOING TO
GET THIS TO DUNCAN CREEK, THERE’S A LOT OF WORK
TO DO. LET’S GET AFTER IT.
