It’s a race against time: Shortly before the onset of winter, Rick Ness and his crew are still 96 ounces short of the season’s target. On the home straight, the treasure hunters at Duncan Creek divert the water, because the men want to dig up fat nuggets in the river bed. Parker Schnabel and his team also mobilize the last of their reserves of strength on the Indian River. In the final sprint, people and material reach their limits. The gold digger car wash: inside runs continuously at full speed. The machine cannot withstand this extreme load.
