Ghost Mine (2013) s01e06 Episode Script

Gold Fever

For 12 weeks now, the old Crescent mine in Sumpter, Oregon, has been living up to its mysterious reputation.
Eight miners and two investigators have encountered a storm of paranormal activity: Tommy-knockers.
- What was that? - Shadow figures.
Unexplained power drains.
- Lights just went out.
- Phantom winds.
Let's get the hell outta here.
Then, after a shadow figure terrified one Miner's family in town, Patrick and Kristen extended their investigation beyond the mine And learned the paranormal activity could have origins in Sumpter's past.
Determined to strike it rich, the miners continued to mine But after the men finally found gold, the paranormal activity appeared to turn aggressive.
I don't have a light, dude.
We got something going on here.
What was that? - Then, an informant exposed a long - Buried masonic secret, and the entrance to a new mine was revealed, a mine that was intentionally hidden.
Now, after breaking down the Barrier keeping them out, Patrick and Kristen, Stan, and Eddie, have made two startling discoveries.
- The mine is filled with gold - Look at that.
But it's also filled with something else.
I'm in the red here.
Were they trying to keep people out of this mine because of gold Something's in here.
Or were they trying to Seal something in, something that they didn't want to get out? With the 90-day mining season coming to a close, the discovery of a new mine shaft has revealed a new layer to the mystery.
It feels like no other mine we've been in so far.
Just has a heaviness.
We have to get in there and figure out what it is.
And inside the tunnel, Patrick and Kristen are already experiencing alarming indications of paranormal activity.
If you're in here, make a noise.
- Do you hear that? - Yeah, I heard that.
Shh.
I'm getting a spike.
Voice recorder's rolling.
Patrick and Kristen in the new mine shaft.
Kristen, look at this.
I'm getting major Spikes.
That's so odd.
And the Spikes are getting higher.
I'm in the red, and it's cold.
My oxygen meter just went out.
It's not working.
Gold.
- Also in the tunnel - Look at that.
Stan and Eddie's attention is focused on something else Their most promising pay rock yet.
This is where our money's at, right here.
Huh? What the hell is that noise? Is that timber groanin'? Timber movin'? I don't know.
Sounded like a growl.
The hell? - Do you hear that? - I'm hearing it.
I've never seen readings like this.
I'm in the red here.
- Ain't nobody else back in - No.
Well, Patrick and Kristen are back there.
Yeah.
If you're in here, make a noise.
Hhm.
You know what? We got something to show.
Let's get out of here for now, and figure out a plan of attack.
That's not right.
- I know.
- Something's in here.
We need to get out of here now.
I got k2 hits in the red here.
We got something going on here.
I know you're in here, so just make yourself known.
Hold on, guys, just a second.
We got something in here with us.
Something that doesn't want us here, I don't think.
Well, I gotta take this and show the guys though.
Why don't you guys head out, we'll get some fresh air.
I think it's a good time to go.
Yeah, let's just get out of here.
All right.
The investigation was cut way too short.
We still have a lot of work to do in there.
I hate leaving when the activity's that high.
I have to follow you, 'cause my light is dead.
All right, that's fine.
But the new discovery means the miners face a decision.
Do they continue working the Crescent, which has yielded a slow but steady flow of gold, or gamble the remaining time left to move operations to the mysterious new tunnel, where the potential payoff is greater but where nothing is guaranteed? It's a simple fact.
We don't have time.
The season's almost over.
First snow falls, we've got to leave.
If we don't, we're here all winter.
It's that simple.
And if there is a bad spirit in there that wants us out, we might have plenty of hell getting all of us out of there.
I don't know.
That night, at the campfire, Stan puts the choice to his team.
I'm telling you guys, there's something different about this.
I mean, the ore's good.
We're talking a big payday here if the indicators are right.
How much rehab do you think we have? How many days of rehab? Two weeks, at least.
I mean, every piece of timber back there is bad.
I mean, you can poke your finger through it.
The problem is, we don't have two weeks to do it.
I mean, that's the risky part.
We don't have the time to rehab everything.
We gotta get in there right now, get it done, and get out of here before we get snowed in.
Just do the bare bones, and call her good, and get the hell in and get the hell out.
We can go in there with minimal rehab.
We've got enough experience here.
I think we can probably handle that.
It's the growling I'm worried about.
I can catch the ground.
That's why I say the timber's bad, the timber's creakin'.
Yeah, timber groanin'.
Nah, it wasn't timber groanin'.
It feels different back there.
I've been in mines where I've actually felt like the ground was gonna come in, or something was wrong.
And I walked out of 'em.
Went back after lunch, And that's how it feels now? It feels different from that.
That's what we wanted to talk to you guys about, 'cause it's a big risk going back there, But the payoff can be huge.
I mean, we're talking cadillacs, guys.
Well, hold on.
Hold on a second.
We've already had a cave-in on ground that we thought was just fine.
Well, don't worry about it, Jay.
Let the professionals take care of it.
We'll take care of it.
Don't worry about it.
Hey, I'm all I'm part of the team.
I'm willing to do what we gotta do.
If you're nervous, you don't need to go back there if you don't want to.
I'm not nervous.
I'm ready to go.
Me, I'm ready to take a shot at it.
We are looking for a quick in-and-out? - Yeah.
- Okay.
Let's go back and take a look at it and come up with a plan.
So everybody's in? - Yep.
- Yep.
- Yep.
- All right.
Without a doubt.
____ I know, Buckett.
You're our hero.
But as the morning breaks, Patrick and Kristen still haven't shaken off their concerns.
We do believe that there could be some strong paranormal presence in there.
The masons owned the mine.
Were they hiding something to come back to later, or were they sealing something in? And there's still one person who needs to approve the plan before work can begin in the new mine: Larry, the mine owner.
Stan takes him back to show him the rich vein of gold-laden ore.
Look at that.
- Very nice.
- All yellow.
There's an awful lot of gold in that new mine.
I mean, it's pure money.
- Good job, Stan.
- All right.
Very good job.
With Larry's approval in place, the excited crew enters to conduct their own exploration.
Yeah, don't touch anything with that bar and don't bump into these timbers.
Okay.
And with each step, they encounter new dangers and reminders of the men who came before them.
Man, we're the first ones in here in a lot of years.
I don't know why the hell they had this sealed up.
Yeah, when I first show up in a mine in an old mine I'll look around, and just kind of pay my respect.
Here's some of the old plugs they put in the ceiling.
- Up top, see 'em? - Oh, yeah.
I like to call it "Detective Mining.
" That's the fun part, figuring out what the old-timers did.
They chiseled a flat spot in the block.
See how they angle up, hold this round timber up? Man, they really knew what they was doing.
This ground sucks really bad.
As the miners explore ever deeper, the men find evidence of a hasty exit.
Lookit here.
Is that an old powder box right there? Yeah.
I don't know why they left some of this stuff.
What is this, Dick? It's an old broken hammer handle.
Powder sticks broke behind you.
- These right here? - Yeah.
I'm surprised we don't find their lunch buckets.
I wouldn't be surprised if we find them.
So they obviously must've had something they were going after back here.
Yeah, and they left in a hurry too.
Being back in that mine, you have a much heavier, darker feeling than you do in the Crescent.
We got pretty far back there, and things just didn't feel right at all.
If my wife had any idea we were back in there with some of the experiences we've been having if she heard about some of those she'd be very adamant about me not going in.
Here, look at this.
What'd you find? - I'm trying not to touch it.
- Be careful.
I am.
- No, no, don't! - I know, I know.
No, no! Don't touch anything! I'll be damned.
Look at there.
Coming up on Ghost Mine Kristen, somebody just moved down there.
I saw it too.
This isn't something we can easily blame on the environment.
And if you're blasting, you could be releasing more negative energy.
Fire in the hole! This ground sucks really bad.
While exploring the newly revealed mine, the miners are finding mysterious artifacts left behind long ago.
I'll be damned.
Look at there.
There's something in it still.
You gotta be kidding me.
- Lookit, it's still corked.
- Still corked.
We had a boy tipping back here.
That could be shine.
You wanna test it? No, I'm not testing it.
There's nothing on it, is there? No, that's an old one.
That's turn of the century.
See the mold mark? There's nothing on the bottom.
Just the side mold marks.
Yeah, there is nothing down there.
Look at that.
I'll tell you what, the way I feel back here, you just put that bad boy back.
The strange feeling in there, it's hard to pinpoint it.
I've never walked in a hall before and had my hair stand on edge and looking over my shoulder.
Before, I was worried more about safety than the paranormal aspects of things, and now, I'm, you know, I'm more towards the paranormal and the weird things.
This mine has both.
While the mystery surrounding the mine does not go unnoticed, the lure of the gold remains strong.
- Man.
- Hey, lookit here.
This is what we're going after.
Look at this.
This is gonna this is gonna come out easy.
Look at you can see it.
- I know.
- Lookit right there.
Oh, my gosh.
What we're seeing in there, the values are excellent.
A lot of golds.
We're looking at a lot of money in there.
Best I've seen in a long time.
Damn, that's good.
What was that? That was a rock crack or a timber crack.
What was that? I don't know what it was.
You didn't touch nothing.
- I didn't touch anything.
- You didn't throw a rock.
No.
This thing isn't coming down, is it? I I really don't like it back here, fellas.
I don't either.
We know what we're into here.
We know what we need to do.
Let's get the hell outta here.
Meanwhile, at camp, Patrick and Kristen meet with Larry to discuss the newly revealed tunnel and the paranormal activity they found inside.
Let me just ask you, are you gonna be blasting in there? Absolutely.
See, that's what we're really worried about because we do think there's something back there.
There's something that's not good back there.
Yeah, there's to be totally honest with you, there's something wrong back there, and if you're blasting, you could be releasing more energy, negative energy.
If we can't blast to get any gold, we might as well all go home right now.
Yeah, we understand all that.
We just ask that you give us some time to check it out.
Okay, I wanna know as soon as possible.
Okay.
Having convinced Larry of the need to investigate, Patrick and Kristen enter the new mine shaft.
They're searching for the source of the mysterious sounds they heard, as well as any plausible explanation for the k2 hits they collected.
Definitely feels strange in here.
Keep an eye on that oxygen meter.
Remember to be careful with these beams.
What is that, Patrick? Oh, looks like a handle to an old tool or something.
What's that one there? Oh, a dynamite box? Yeah, that's what it looks like.
There's a lot of tools.
Look at this.
Yeah, but even right there, these.
At the beginning of our investigation, Patrick and I were seeing some artifacts that were left there by the miners.
It kind of puts you in that time frame, in that maybe feeling what the miners felt back then.
Looks like leather.
Yeah, it's an old leather grip.
See the nails? So they just up and left all their tools in here? Looks like it.
That's weird, huh? You'd think if they were gonna leave a place, they'd take their tools with them.
Look at this wood here.
Look how corroded it is.
Just kick it apart.
Yeah, that's the same wood that's holding up the ceiling.
It's holding everything up.
Oh, wow, look at that.
Right above your head.
It's a cave-in right on top of the supports.
Moving on, then.
Yeah, let's get through this one quick here.
Jeez, look at that.
This thing already caved in a bit.
Kristen, somebody just moved down there.
I just saw something right down there.
You sure it just wasn't the light? No, it was a person right down there.
Maybe one of the other miners are No.
Who's down there? I swear, it was right there.
Oh,.
I just saw an arm.
- I saw it too.
- Yeah.
Who's back there? You got your voice recorder on you? Kristen and Patrick.
Back of the mine, at the face.
Just saw somebody.
I'm pretty sure I got a picture of it.
It was frightening.
It was definitely a full figure.
And this is the second one I've seen while we've been here, and it is scary.
It was right here.
This is a dead end.
It was just standing right here, about my height, I'm guessing.
It was probably this tall? And when we got to the face, it just felt wrong, and that's the only way I can describe it.
It just felt like, "get out.
" There's a lot of quartz back here.
This is an incredible quartz vein right here.
Look at this.
Look at the size of this thing.
Why would they just leave this? Yeah, do an EVP session back here.
Kristen and Patrick.
Further into the face of the mine.
EVP session two.
Are you the reason why this portal was sealed? Are you protecting the gold? Are you protecting this section of the portal? Oh, [bleep]! Coming up on Ghost Mine I don't know if it was fear, but I was having trouble breathing.
Where's Dingus at? Dingus! I'm worried, I don't think it feels good, and I don't think they should be there.
You all right? I followed somebody back here.
Man, there's nobody back here.
It's caved in.
I don't wanna see what Dingus said he saw.
Just don't.
I don't feel good, bud.
Kristen and Patrick, EVP session two.
Kristen and Patrick, investigating in the newly discovered mine, are experiencing strange activity.
Are you protecting this section of the portal? Oh, [bleep]! That thing just dropped.
It just fell over on its own? And I got a small spike before it fell.
Right before the dynamite box tipped over, I saw a slight EMF spike.
What I'm sensing is that this is not what we call a residual haunt.
This is, I'm guessing, an intelligent haunt because we were getting responses.
It was making itself known to us.
You all right? Yeah, I just Your breathing seems very heavy.
Try to calm down.
I was having trouble breathing.
It felt like the air was thinner, But the oxygen meter was reading the same, so I don't know if it was fear or what I was feeling, but I was having trouble breathing.
I think it's time to go, Patrick.
You're not feeling well? Okay.
We'll head back.
When someone's feeling too uncomfortable or you're breathing that heavy, it's time to get out of there, and that's the rule.
Take it easy.
Don't rush out.
With our other investigations, like, at the B&B, and the dredge, even in the front of the Crescent mine, we'll get a few things, but they don't feel like they can harm us.
Back there, yeah, you feel like something's out to get you.
Just keep moving.
Something's back there.
I don't know what it is.
It's negative.
It's dark.
I am I'm worried.
I'm worried for myself.
I'm worried for Patrick.
I'm worried for the miners.
I don't think it feels good, and I don't think they should be there.
First thing in the morning, Patrick and Kristen begin combing through the data gathered from their investigations of the new tunnel.
They're hoping to find conclusive evidence of paranormal activity.
Look how dangerous that was.
That whole beam is just bowed in.
I don't even want to look.
Despite Patrick and Kristen's concerns, the miners begin rehabbing the newly revealed tunnel.
We're not throwing caution to the wind.
We're making it as safe as we can possibly make it in a short period of time.
And if there is a bad spirit in there that wants us out, we might have plenty of hell getting all of us out of there.
I don't know.
We're bolting that for sure.
Yes, sir.
I believe we are bolting.
I've been a little bit freaked out with what's been going on around here, but I'm sticking to it, and I'm pushing on.
You can finally see your paycheck in the future.
All your hopes and dreams are kind of finally materializing, and everybody's excited.
I think we can do it.
Between all of us, and all of the experience we have, we've got the potential to leave here with our pockets full.
Real good paycheck.
Air on, please.
If all goes well, the mine will be up to a workable condition before cold weather closes it down.
Later that afternoon, Patrick and Kristen meet with Stan to show him the results of their investigation - Is Stan in there? - And convey a warning.
How's it going? All right.
What's up? Patrick and I both saw something back there.
And we have something to show you, too.
Okay.
So we were walking back to the face and heard a noise.
I whipped the camera around and took this photo.
And I saw this with my own eyes.
This is our figure that we're seeing, and that's at the face.
I would say that it's standing pretty much like a guardian.
I see, like, a shadow there.
And Kristen and I are the only ones in there.
Here, I'm walking towards it.
I'm still snapping photos.
You can see it a little bit clearer right there.
And again, still running towards it, and this is where Kristen turned around and said she saw an arm, and that's what I got a camera.
And it's the figure ducking, basically, into nothing, ducking into the rock.
You know, even when I first experienced this with Patrick, Stan, I thought maybe it was just the light from our head lamps bouncing off the face of the mine, but when we got those pictures, I knew that we did actually see something back there.
This isn't something that we can easily just blame on the environment.
Patrick and I think it might be guarding the face of the mine.
So what are you saying? You think we need to abandon it? Is that basically what you're saying at this point? We believe it's really dangerous back there.
Well, we had a long conversation about it, the whole crew, so I can't, in all honesty, say, "come on, guys, get out of here" until one of them experiences something.
Just please, be extra cautious in there, - like, more than normal.
- Sure.
Especially when you're, like, breaking the rock, 'cause you could be releasing more energy.
- All right? - They will.
We'll pay attention to what you guys tell us.
- All right, that's great.
- Okay? I think that's yeah, that's the best we can ask for.
Coming up on Ghost Mine All clear! - What the hell was that? - I don't know.
I think they're walking into something that could harm them.
We're just trying to say that we're worried about your safety, as your friends.
Fire in the hole! I think there's something bad in there.
Get ready.
As the crew prepares to mine, back in town, reports of the newly revealed tunnel have reached the miners' wives.
Now, instead of a safe trip home, they're dealing with a new round of concerns.
Looking for reassurance, they turn to the mine owner's wife, Stacie.
I'm out of the loop.
I understand I don't really know the terminology and stuff, but why why? - Money.
- This is this all about money? Is this all about, there's a vein, and now, they're going, "Let's do it"? That's what I'm assuming.
To me, it sounds like that's not a good idea.
Let's be honest, straight, right now.
If you know something, I think we should know.
If they have plans on going into the other mine, - we want to know.
- Right.
And if you know this information, we want to know.
I know that Larry and Stan would not allow anything to happen or do anything that would jeopardize any of our families.
Every man has a say up there in whether they move forward or not.
So it is not just based off of one person saying, "move forward.
" How do you feel about it? What do you want? Are you more for the gold or are you more for safety? Life is too short, and every day is very important.
And I don't want anyone to have to go through losing somebody that they love.
If there is paranormal things going on at the mine, Eddie doesn't want to worry me or bother me with it.
I've been through enough with him over these years.
I don't care about the gold.
If there's a chance for us to get out now, I would rather get out, rather than our men not come home.
I agree with you, Donna.
Two days later, the tunnel has been rehabbed to a workable condition.
Now the miners turn their attention blasting.
They begin by drilling holes for dynamite into the gold-rich vein of quartz.
____ The same quartz vein where Patrick and Kristen witnessed a full-figured apparition.
Once the drilling is done, Jay and Buckett prepare the myriad of fuses needed to blast the rock face.
Put it in there straight stick, see? Okay.
____ ____ What the hell was that? - What was that? - I don't know.
____ ____ ____ - That's it.
- All right.
- Okay, you want to go clear us? - Yeah.
- All clear! - All clear.
Fire in the hole! Fire in the hole.
Let's go.
It'll be a payday? ____ - ____ - Good.
Get ready.
Whoo, baby! Yeah! - Damn, that was good.
- Yeah! Whoo! As the dust settles down, the mood is definitely up.
That's some money, baby! Following routine, the men quickly clear any loose rock.
You have to go in, and you have to check the ground all the way in.
It's dangerous.
And it's part of their job.
But the routine breaks down when the miners realize someone is missing.
Where's Dingus at? Hey, Dingus? - I don't hear anything.
- I don't hear a thing.
Dingus! Dingus! Hey, Dingus! I don't hear him at all.
I'll go see where he's at.
That's very uncharacteristic of Dingus.
He just kind of disappeared, wandered off, and that's completely out of the ordinary.
Dingus! Hey! Dingus! Hey, Dingus! Hey, Dingus! You all right? Hey, Dingus.
Hey, man.
What are you doing back here? I followed somebody back here.
No, there's nobody back here.
It's caved in.
I seen him head back here and I followed them.
Hey, man, there's nobody back here.
Found him in a caved-in drift.
He was telling me he's found he's seen somebody walk through there, but there's no way that anybody walked through that tunnel, it's caved-in.
Man, your eyes are dilated big-time.
- You all right? - I don't feel good, bud.
You don't look good, come on.
Let's get out of here, man.
I'm telling you, there's somebody back here.
No, there's not.
There's nobody back here.
We shouldn't be back here.
I don't feel good, partner.
____ ____ There's somebody back here.
After reopening a mysterious hidden mining tunnel One of the miners has reported a terrifying encounter, an encounter for which there is no explanation.
Man, your eyes are dilated big-time.
- You all right? - I don't feel good, bud.
You don't look good, come on.
Let's get out of here, man.
- I'm telling you, there's somebody back here.
- ____ - ____ - I don't feel good, partner.
____ ____ There's somebody back here.
There's nothing.
____ ____ Hey, whoa.
He gonna be all right? What's going on? - He got some bad air - Put him right here.
Put him there.
I got ya, buddy.
- What happened? - You all right? Here.
Whoo.
You okay? What happened, man? - [bleep], man.
- Where'd you find him? ____ - ____ - We were wondering where he went.
I followed someone back there.
Any idea who it was? Someone somebody horsing around there? Did you see anybody back there? We're the only crew in there.
After seeing Dingus shook up like he is, I'm not sure what's going on back there.
You got any water? Get some water.
Actually getting pretty weird with Dingus running around like that.
I feel like there might be something bad in there.
I don't want to see what Dingus said he saw.
Just don't.
After assuring themselves that Dingus is fine, the miners decide to call it a day.
The next morning, after hearing of the strange encounter in the mine, Patrick and Kristen are determined to share their findings with the miners.
They convince Stan and Larry to set up the meeting.
I asked you to meet with us today because we need to talk about what's been going on recently.
We're concerned about the paranormal activity in the new mine and your guys' safety.
The first time we drove R.
I.
P.
A.
through, R.
I.
P.
A.
went through a complete power drain failure.
At the same time, we were getting these really high EMF spikes.
And when I say "high," these are the highest we've ever seen anywhere on any investigation.
Eddie, Stan, you both heard the growl.
And the voice recorder picked up that growl.
And I'd like to play it for you, so all of you can hear it and give your opinion.
Yeah, play this.
I want to hear this.
Yeah, just have a listen, and tell us what you think it is.
That's a growl.
- It sounds like a bear.
- I think it's timber.
Anybody else have any ideas? There's a new area opened up, fresh air going into it.
Just timber, rock, or combination.
So you've heard this noise before? I never heard a growl, but I don't know.
I started feeling pretty sick back there.
I had a similar experience when we went to the face of the mine.
I couldn't breathe.
The air was heavy.
It was reading fine on our oxygen meter, but I couldn't breathe.
- And we had to leave.
- Yeah.
You know, when those track ties stay underwater for a certain amount of time, they emit a gas when you step on them.
It could've been a pocket of gas.
I'll throw this to Dingus.
Is that what it was? When I get in bad air, I have a headache, and I didn't have a headache.
I just I couldn't breathe.
Your experience is just like ours.
We saw something move, we chased it, and then Kristen couldn't breathe.
So, Larry, after you talked to us in the P.
I.
shack there, Kristen and I conducted another investigation, and we did find some very interesting and disturbing evidence.
We were in the drift there, right past where the little artifacts are in that little dugout.
I looked up, and I looked down the drift.
I saw something.
I whipped the camera up, and I hit the shutter button.
And that's what we captured.
A human figure.
This is the same kind of thing that I saw.
When we heard what happened to you, we thought the same thing.
It's just our opinion that something doesn't want you back there working there.
We only have a small amount of time left.
You know, I mean, a couple more days is not gonna hurt us.
We're not trying to say that you don't know what you're doing.
We're just trying to say that we're worried about your safety, as your friends.
Well, here's one thing that I know.
You know, we're making a little bit of money right now, But these guys need to make more money.
I agree with Larry.
We got to continue.
We all voted on it.
We all agreed to it.
I think everybody's still there.
Aren't you? Still with you, boss.
I'm just asking you to please be safe.
We'll be fine.
Thank you for caring about us.
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- Means a lot to us.
- Thank you.
Appreciate it.
- Let's go.
- Let's do it.
All right.
We'll be all right, Red.
They feel that this entity is warning everyone to stay away from the gold.
We tried to assure we're gonna do this as carefully as we can.
The men quickly suit up so they can finish rehabbing the old tunnel and at last begin safely hauling out the gold ore they've worked so hard to get.
There's, you know, definite safety concerns and paranormal concerns.
And that really scares the crap out of me, when you start thinking about not going home, 'cause that's really what we're here to do go home to our loved ones and provide for 'em.
It's getting real spooky inside, But now that we're making money, we're trying to block that out.
I hope we can make it through this without any more problems.
But walking to the mine, the men are shocked by what they find.
Holy [bleep].
- What the hell? - What the hell? ____ Son of a bitch.
- Holy [bleep].
- Hey.
- Oh, come on.
- What happened? Are you kidding me? The men have just discovered that, overnight, the new mine shaft filled with high-grade gold ore, has inexplicably caved in.
You gotta be kidding me.
What the [bleep] is this [bleep], huh? - Son of a bitch.
- Did it collapse? ____ We all went down there with really high hopes.
And at first, we thought, "Oh, man, this thing's collapsed.
" Look at the top, where the wood splintered.
Yeah.
This is gonna take several weeks to clean up.
And the strange circumstances surrounding the cave-in have some of the miners believing the paranormal investigators may have been right all along.
It's got a real strange feeling to it.
The hair stands up on the back of your head.
Kristen and Patrick did warn us about going into the portal.
You know, considering what happened to Dingus, it's way too coincidental, all of these things happening at once.
I think there's something bad in there.
I really do.
But always the skeptic, Eddie comes to another conclusion.
To begin with, I think I know who did it.
________ ____ We went back there, we did all the [bleep] damn work.
We found the hot heading.
We opened it back up.
And then he closed it in.
That way he could just I mean, he just cuts us completely out of the deal there.
There's no way we're gonna have a resolution or a fix for this by the time winter comes.
We're kind of screwed.
Time to go.
With signs of snow now visible on the surrounding peaks, and reports of the season's first winter storm on the way, there's only enough time to shut down the mine and prepare for winter.
The best we could do is come back in the spring, jump on it, and get it opened up.
For Patrick and Kristen, the mysterious collapse of the tunnel adds new layers to their investigation An investigation also on hold until spring's thaw allows the mine to be reopened.
That one ready to go? Okay.
We probably have a lot more questions than we have answers.
I mean, there was no boom.
There was no loud noise.
We don't really know what happened.
So that could mean it could've been something paranormal.
I mean, there was definitely a heavy feeling back there.
But there are some things that we do know.
The masons own the mine.
They covered up a portal and left clues to it to where to find it.
And there is still a strong masonic presence in this town.
Is it possible they had something to do with bringing down the portal? And while no one is leaving the mountain a new millionaire, the season has been a success.
The 100 tons of high-grade ore taken from the Crescent ensures that each miner will leave the mountain $80,000 richer.
Hello, guys.
- Hey, everybody.
- Hey, guys.
- How y'all doing? - Ready to go? Yeah, always.
Anyway, we had a pretty rough start, but we made it.
Everybody made a little bit of money.
But the point is nobody got hurt.
We did a good job with what we had to work with.
And I'm real proud of you.
I'm happy to be going home, leaving here with a little bit of money not as much as I'd like to leave here with, but you know, bills are temporarily paid.
I'll go home and relax for a little while before I look for work.
Some of y'all got a long ways to go, so be careful.
I know you're thinking about getting back with your families, so go.
- Well, we're out of here.
- All right.
Take care.
We'll talk soon, all right? You too.
And while some questions remain unanswered, one thing is certain.
The project, which started with suspicion, turned into a working partnership.
You guys have planted a lot of thoughts in my brain.
I've got a lot to think about now.
Ghost in a mine this is the first time I've really had to deal with it.
From what I learned from Patrick and red, I think I'll just be paying a little more attention to what I hear and see in the future.
Come back next year.
Bring a cook with you.
It seems there's a lot of old properties that have very good potential.
And some of them are supposedly being haunted.
We can go in there and say, "Yeah, we can open this thing.
Oh, ghosts don't bother us.
We have the experts here to help us with it.
" I think I'd do it again.
It was quite an experience, but I tell you what.
I'd really be looking forward to having Patrick and red along with us.
I don't think I'm going to miss the place that much, but I definitely will miss the guys.
- Bye, guys.
- Take care.
- Bye, guys.
- Bye-Bye.
I guess that means we gotta get out of here too.
- Yeah, all right.
- All right.
Right behind you.
