I WAS LOADING ROCK TRUCKS,
AND I HIT A BUNCH OF FROST. SEE ALL THIS [BLEEP] LET’S DIG SOME TEST HOLES, ‘CAUSE IF THAT’S ALL FROZEN,
THIS WHOLE PLAN’S [BLEEP] Mike: OKAY. WELL, IT BETTER NOT
ALL BE FROZEN, ‘CAUSE THAT’S GONNA BE
A REAL PAIN IN THE ASS. Narrator:
IF KEVIN’S CUT IS COMPLETELY COVERED
WITH PERMAFROST, IT COULD TAKE WEEKS TO REMOVE AND COST TENS OF THOUSANDS
OF DOLLARS. TAKING THE 700 TO GO DIG
SOME [BLEEP] HOLES SO WE CAN SEE HOW MUCH FROST
WE GOT OUT BACK HERE SO WE CAN MAKE A PLAN BEFORE WE GET TOO AMBITIOUS
AT TEARING THAT FROST OUT. Narrator: THE FIRST TEST HOLE
HAS REVEALED THAWED GROUND. NOW MIKE MUST MOVE ON
TO THE NEXT SPOT TO SEE HOW FAR THE THAW GOES. ♪♪ ♪♪ RIGHT THERE. OH, YEAH. Narrator: KEVIN’S GROUND IS ON
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HILL FROM MIKE’S EXISTING CUT. IF THE SAME PAY LAYER CONTINUES,
KEVIN COULD HAVE 40 FEET OF PAY. SO, HEY, DAD, YOU HAPPY
YOU CAME BACK TO THE HILL? THE BEETSES HAVE MADE
A MASSIVE DISCOVERY. KEVIN’S CUT HAS A PAY LAYER AS
THICK AS ANY TONY HAS EVER SEEN, AND IT’S ALL THAWED.
