– [RCSparks] Okay boys,
it’s a beautiful day out on the mine site. YouTube Gold.
– YouTube Gold, baby. – Gold, baby.
– Yeah. – Really beautiful day. – [RCSparks] Where’s Goldilocks? – Yeah, I haven’t seen him.
– Haven’t seen him. Don’t know where he is. – [SluiceBox Steve] It’s
too windy for his hair. – [RCSparks] Joe. – [SluiceBox Steve] Joe. You can have beer.
– Nothing. Okay, so, it doesn’t
matter, skeleton crew or not here’s what has to happen. That hopper up there, if
we’re gonna be short-handed, we need to finally listen
to the YouTube viewers and get the Volvo to
dump right into it today. – Wow.
– Yeah. – That’s a lot of dirt. – [RCSparks] It is, I don’t
think it’s gonna process it as well as they think, but we have to dig it down at least. It’ll help the loader, everything else. And I also wanna get some
stones getting crushed by the rock crusher today because there are just too
many (horn honks) requests. – All right.
– Yeah, I don’t need any crushed rock, I need gold, right? – We need gold.
– Okay. – We need gold, we could use a little more rock on the road so. (truck chugging)
– Nice. (gravel pattering)
(truck whirring) – [RCSparks] What’s the plan gentlemen. – [SluiceBox Steve] We’re
gonna pull the hopper and the conveyor out of
here with the bulldozer. And then we’ll dig her down and drop that hopper
into the ground a bit, so we can load it with the truck. – [RCSparks] Yeah, that way, at least, whenever we’re loading with the loader it doesn’t have to lift
so high either, right. – True.
– So, get it down a few feet. – [SluiceBox Steve] That
should save you some time. – [RCSparks] Yup, okay,
bring it in, Sluice, swing her around and let’s
get that hook in here. (engine chugging) Okay, forward. (truck whirring) Yeah, perfect. Nice and slow, bro. Perfect, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, back up, go. (engine chugging) There you go, nice and easy. Lay it up, lay it up. (engine chugging) Woo-hoo, good job, good job. Okay, the hopper has to move as well. I’ve rigged it up on the bottom so we can just slide it out before we have to twist it around. We have it on this skid plate. Yeah, good job keep coming. Six inches, four, three, two, good. Curl, curl you’re, yeah and down. There, good, okay, forward. (engine chugging) Okay, stop. Just wanted to clear my fingers, go. Nice job, nice and slow, bro. Careful. – [SluiceBox Steve] Rolling and pulling those rocks.
– Just the pure power of these dozers. – [Rookie] Want me to
get by this control box? – [RCSparks] No, that’s far enough, man. – [Rookie] Guess we just gon’ dig it out. – [RCSparks] Yeah, let’s get digging. (rock crusher rattling) (rocks pattering) The hungry crusher starts with a meal. (rock crusher rattling) Just the way it goes, Steve. Some days you can start
with the plant firing up. Some days you just gotta make it so you can get through a day’s work. – [SluiceBox Steve] Yup,
sometimes you gotta work. Not all fun and games. – [RCSparks] So we’re
just shoring up the wall. We’re gonna have to bring the ramp closer. It’s a lot of work to
get this set up this way, but hopefully it pays off. The only issue is, is now, we’re going to have to
have a pump down here in case it rains or anything like that. It’s just gonna be full
almost immediately. – Oh, yeah, this’ll full right up. – [RCSparks] Yeah. (rock crusher rattling) (engine chugging) All my dozing work, I
gotta get done myself. – [Rookie] None of our professional dozer operators are here. – [RCSparks] Yeah, it’s not an easy job. – [Rookie] Almost as hard as camera work. (laughing) Ay, there’s Joe. – Joe?
– Joe. – [RCSparks] Oh, look who finally decided to show up to work today. – [Rookie] Did he have a hair appointment? – [SluiceBox Steve]
I’ve been here all day. What are you talking about? – [RCSparks] Joe’s behind you. – Good morning.
– Hey. – [RCSparks] Hey, your perm looks good. – [Krazy Joe] Sorry boys, I slept in. – [Rookie] Slept in, we thought you were getting your hair done.
– Yeah, did you get a perm? – Man. – Sleeping in.
– Some days just. – [RCSparks] Rook, fire up the pump buddy. – [Rookie] Fire up the pump, which one? We got many. – Shaker.
– Shaker. – [RCSparks] I got dual
sluices, Little Red here – [Rookie] Shaker. – [RCSparks] Pumps are on. – [Rookie] Shaker don’t work. – [RCSparks] Shaker don’t work. – [Rookie] Oh, it’s trying. – [RCSparks] Like a curse of the day. – Oh yeah.
– Power. – [Rookie] You can see her spinning there.
– Watch out. Hold on. Oh, that is like, okay, go again. – [Rookie] Other way, give it a push. – [RCSparks] Hold on, watch out. Yeah, that motor is getting old, dude. Oh, it wants to go, there, oh. Yeah. (motor chugging) I’m gonna get some lube. If it ain’t one thing it’s another. (motor chugging) Getting that push in
there just a little bit. That’ll help. – [Rookie] That’ll help. – [RCSparks] That’ll limp us through to the end of the season, Rook. – Absolutely. – [RCSparks] Turning on Little Red. Trommel on. (machines humming) – [Rookie] Oh, you got some
left over form last week. – [RCSparks] Good, there we go. Making sure the auger is
pushed in, good to go. Looking good, oh, we got a
sluice box coming out here. – [Rookie] Oh no. – [RCSparks] We need a wedge. (Rookie speaking away from mic) Good flow today. Down into the tailings ponds. It’s got a filter on it,
comes down to the freshwater. Shaker plant, definitely needs
to be turned up a little bit. (motor chugging) Boys are making their final
adjustments over there. Rookie.
– Sir. – [RCSparks] Get your
excavator over to the new cut. – Okay, cut away. I worked really hard today. (laughing) – [RCSparks] You turned the
crusher on and walked away. Okay, everything’s dialed in here. The only problem we see is we got a little bit of dirt here ’cause it’s a steeper incline. We wanna see if some extra pay in there will actually help it get up and away. Ramp, the pad, everything,
looking perfect now. Into the Volvo getting ’em filled up. This is one of the most unique
pieces I have on the site, one of my favorites, by far. Six wheel drive, very powerful open diffs. I’m surprised at how well this does just with the open diffs itself. but you know, what can
you say, three axles. Always dealing with the elements. Nice, stacked large, he’s on his way. Straight up to the hopper, brother. No tipping it over. (laughing) You can see this dump truck has been taking some beatings, but running a mine site is
not easy on equipment at all. In fact, the amount of maintenance that we’re gonna have to do over the winter time, it’s gonna just basically dominate. Got some boulders in the way, still need to clear these out. Watch out, you got a boulder in front ya. (machines whirring) Must’ve fallen straight
off the top conveyor. Good job, Steve. Line it up with that hopper, man. Beautiful, like that, yeah. First load, Steve, nice and slow, bro. Make sure it can handle it. Nice. Everybody should feel so satisfied watching the show right now. Whoa, nice and slow, brother. Good, minimal loss. A little bit over the edge, not bad. That rock truck, look at that, full extension, brother. Good job, big pile up, ey. That’s okay, it’s ’cause it’s full. – Yeah.
– So it can’t take a full load from the rock truck. – [SluiceBox Steve] Okay, give
her a half load next time. – [RCSparks] Yeah, half load. We’re making money, boys. (whoops) Yeah.
– Bringing it home. (whoops) – [RCSparks] Bringing it home. (machines humming) That material hopper has
that feeding door on it, helping keep a steady pace
while he returns back down. Those boys are actually
separating out pay right now. Meanwhile, this hopper can keep on. Thought I was going to
be short-handed today. Did something to help improve
the mine site overall. I don’t know if I’ll still use the hopper and the Volvo all the time, just because it can’t
handle that much material. (motor chugging) – What’s going on?
– Right here. We forgot to turn on the
conveyor, no problem. – [Rookie] That’s ’cause you’re
(machines drown out speaker) – [RCSparks] That’s okay. – That’s okay.
– That’s okay. Still going. – [Rookie] Our wall is staring to lean and we’re starting to miss. We’re pulling away, we pulled
right out of the nails. – [RCSparks] I see that, we’re gonna have to do a repair on that,
not right now though. Keep going ’til it falls off. – [Rookie] All right. – [RCSparks] YouTube Gold (machines humming) In the cut separating everything out. Making it easier to process deciding on which machine that it actually goes into. The shaker can handle a lot of material but that trommel, Little Red, it just keeps on giving– – Oh, fell off.
– Yeah, yeah. Hey, as long as he’s not pigtailing paint like you did last time, yeah, Rook. – Hey, hey, hey.
(laughing) It was just a scratch, little scratch. – [RCSparks] Yeah and
another $50,000 paint job. – [Rookie] Ha. (machine whirring) – [RCSparks] Such an amazing hydraulic radio-control,
all-metal machine. That’s the difference when
you have an all-metal machine, is it actually holds the weight where you can dig down and actually use a toothed bucket, like you can see right there, to give yourself a nice healthy scoop. The hydraulic fluid of course, down in the tank underneath the ladder, getting pumped out
through a brushless motor. Going through a hydraulic block, going to each cylinder allowing for gold mining
to even take place. (dramatic orchestra music) (machines whirring) Looking good, Joe, keep up the good work. – [Krazy Joe] Making piles, working. (dramatic orchestra music) (low rumbling) – [RCSparks] Little by little. Too much in there will
start to bind it up. (engine chugging) Rookie moved back up to the top here. He’s gonna start processing pay as well. (engines chugging) – Right there?
– Right there is good. – [RCSparks] Beautiful. One more, Sluice. (engines chugging) First pay out of Rookie’s excavator. Straight onto the conveyor. Last episode, we ended up
having a LiPo fire here. Got it switched out, got
the box switched out, now we’re ready to rock. Down to the triple conveyor. Carrying it up, Old Faithful, straight to the shaker plant. In it goes, there we go, it’s beautiful. – [Rookie] That’s money. – [RCSparks] Hey, the sluice
box is unhinged, guys. – [Rookie] Got it, okay, it’s sliding. We’re good. – [RCSparks] That was convenient, I’m glad we didn’t have
to use the excavator. – [Rookie] Oh my God,
would’ve gone terrible. – [RCSparks] Look at
that, just moving pay. I love the attitude today. Look at that big healthy scoop. (engines chugging) What a Goliath. How much you think this weighs, Rook? – [Rookie] It’s a good 60 pounds. – [RCSparks] Yeah, at least 60 pounds. (squeaking) I like how it authentically
squeaks as it drives around. – [Rookie] Oh, it does that. (machines humming) – [Krazy Joe] I can push
it there, don’t bother me. (machines humming) – [RCSparks] There you go,
Rook, run it through the plant. Whatever we get, we get. (engines chugging) Hate getting vegetation in there. If we want to get any of that gold that could be inside that
rock, we gotta run it. Good luck, that is gonna be
one full tailings pond today. (motor humming) Bring me gold, baby. (machines humming) (rocks pattering) Nice and slow, Sluice,
don’t let her build up. – I feel that this may
be far too efficient for the way we work. – [RCSparks] It is moving a lot of pay. – That’s a lot of pay. How’s the bulldozer and Joe gonna keep up? – [RCSparks] Hurry, man, hurry. (chuckling) What, we don’t want any dirt in the gas. (motor humming) There you go. That’s not right, we got a pump issue or a generator issue. (engine chugging) (motor humming) Wonder if the air filter. There’s a spark plug. Let’s shut her down, check the oil. – [SluiceBox Steve] That spark plug’s really bouncing around, ey. – [RCSparks] It was, yeah. – [SluiceBox Steve] The plug’s loose. – [RCSparks] That’s a good call, look how loose that is. Oh. – That’s what’s going on.
– That’s what happened. – Spark plug wire.
– Just the vibration, it was slowly falling apart when we went to refuel it, she done. – Okay.
– Uh oh. – [RCSparks] Okay, well
we ran what we ran. – No.
– Shut her down. – [SluiceBox Steve] Shut her down. – [RCSparks] Shut her down. Generator’s toast. – Well, you’re new set up over there that you dumped that pay
in straight from the truck is way to efficient, man. I can’t keep up at all. – [RCSparks] Oh we got
a con, look at this. – [Krazy Joe] Oh my God. – [SluiceBox Steve] Holy crap. – [Krazy Joe] Hold everything. – [RCSparks] It’s jammed,
it’s okay, we’ll back it up. – Oh crap.
– No. It’s seriously jammed. – [SluiceBox Steve] Yeah,
there too much in there. Hold up.
– There’s too much in there. It couldn’t process it. Watch out. Yeah, it’s totally frigged. – [Rookie] Wow and this is
why we don’t use a dump truck. – Yeah, oh, it’s trying.
– Oh, trying. – [RCSparks] It’s trying. Watch your fingers.
– Yeah, I’m– – [RCSparks] I’m gonna back it up again. Fire it up there, Joe. Watch his fingers. Other one, other one.
– Not that one, the other one. – [RCSparks] Yeah, okay,
now go the other way. It’s just that it’s jammed. – [Rookie] Yeah. – [RCSparks] Okay, let’s start– – Watch your fingers.
– Watch your fingers. – Yeah–
– Yeah back again, back again.
– Be careful. – [Rookie] Come on, Joe. – [RCSparks] Yeah. – [Rookie] It’s just got
so much material in it. – [RCSparks] Yeah and there’s no way the box is gonna process all that at once. – [Rookie] Okay stop. – [RCSparks] Okay let’s put this– – [Rookie] Buddy. – [RCSparks] Let’s put it back. – [Rookie] Everybody
put it in their pockets. (laughing) – There.
– Here, put in my container. (laughing) – [RCSparks] Let’s put it
back on the conveyor, guys. – [SluiceBox Steve] That reminds of a guy I seen filling up his shopping cart with snow.
– Yeah go ahead, Rook. You go ahead and take a scoopful. There’s just no way, yeah, okay, the other way there, KJ. (motor chugging) Yeah, try it again. – She’s trying.
– Yeah. – One more.
– Finger, watch your finger. – I know, I know.
– Yeah. That’s a strong motor
too, K, it’s starting. Just let it process slow though. – [Krazy Joe] Yeah. – [RCSparks] I’m gonna
knock down this top box, it’ll have build-up. – [Rookie] Wow. – [RCSparks] Different
problems every episode, hey. – Use a dump truck, they say.
– Yeah, Rookie, just brought up a good point. – [RCSparks] Yeah, use
a dump truck, they say. Dump it, on let’s go.
– Come on, let’s go. – [Rookie] Hold on. – Okay, grizzly bars. (crunching) Okay, bust out the other generator. (machines humming) Now this is all processed, can go up to being processed
in the bigger machines. See if we get any gold at all. This cut has been paying so well, but I don’t know we’re on the vein still or if we’ve basically mined it out. But if anything, the last episode showed that we’re still on strong gold and the drill samples definitely show it. Oh, I hear the pump is
starting to run low. I need your controller. We need it for the mega truck. Yeah, the big haul truck. – Oh dang. – [RCSparks] Take a break, thank you. Old generator needing repair, new generator on the way. That gives you an idea of how
large that whole truck is. You’ve got to level it out so we got enough fuel in there. Perfect. (motor rumbling) (machines humming) Nice job. Last few scoops. Look at right there. Right there.
(exclaiming) (laughing) Yeah. – See, all the big ones
come from my excavator. – [RCSparks] It was from your pile. – From the excavator. (laughing) Look at that.
– Right there. Sweet deal, buddy, knock that up. (whoops)
Good job, good job. Bring it home. I love gold mining. The one-man show up there getting the last bit of his pay. Seeing the gold gives you the fever. Scraping every little bit
off the ground, too funny. I’m thinking we’re gonna have to use the loader next time to load, boys, or else we can only do like half buckets with the whole Volvo. If we’re short-handed–
– That’s a lot of pay. – [RCSparks] If we’re short-handed, we can use half buckets, right, that should
– Yeah, yeah. – [RCSparks] Handle it but– – [SluiceBox Steve] That’s
what I was doing actually, just putting half. – [RCSparks] Oh, were you doing only half? – [SluiceBox Steve] Half
truck, half load, yeah. – [RCSparks] So then we got to keep an eye on the auger of Little Red then. That was the problem,
is it got overburdened. – [SluiceBox Steve] When you
overfill that little screener. – Yeah.
– You know, it stops the belt too. – Oh does it?
– Yeah, yeah. – [RCSparks] Oh, too much. – [SluiceBox Steve] So I got
the belt running full speed, just so it doesn’t stop.
– In the hopper. – Yeah.
– Oh, that’s no good. That’s just burning through ’em, huh. – [Krazy Joe] Too fast to feed. – [RCSparks] Too fast to feed, yeah. – Too fast of feed, yeah. – [RCSparks] Too much weight and too fast. – Yeah, too much material. – [Rookie] YouTube Gold. – [RCSparks] You Tube Gold, baby. – [Krazy Joe] YouTube Gold. (laughing) – [SluiceBox Steve] Got ravens. (engine chugging) (sighs with satisfaction) – [RCSparks] Are you done? – I’m done. – [RCSparks] Shut her down, Steve. Shut her down. – Shutting her down. (whooping) – [RCSparks] Genny off. Pump’s off. (grunts) Oh, those are nice and toasty. – [Rookie] It gets so quiet. – [RCSparks] Yeah,
everything comes to a stop. – [Krazy Joe] Shutting her down. – [RCSparks] Oh, nice. Anything, there’s a
piece, there’s a piece. – [SluiceBox Steve] Oh there’s some. – [RCSparks] There’s some. – Oh, yeah, there some.
– We have gold. – [RCSparks] I don’t
really see a lot though. – [Krazy Joe] We have gold. – [RCSparks] There is,
right here, there’s more. – [Rookie] There’s more
in the corner here too. – [RCSparks] There’s
quite a bit that we’re, look how big this is.
– Look how big that is. – Couple big chunks there.
– Why is that over there? – Let’s see.
– Some water down there. – [Rookie] It was in the tailings. – [RCSparks] I don’t see bupkis
in here, I see a little bit. Here, here, here, here,
here, oh no, there’s gold. Here, oh, uh oh. – [Rookie] Oh, that’s down far isn’t it?
– There’s gold here. – [Rookie] I don’t like it down there. – [Krazy Joe] I don’t
like it down there either. – [RCSparks] I don’t see anything on the mat though, thankfully. – [Rookie] Well, it’s
still in the tailings pond, if we have to. – [RCSparks] We’ll be able to– – Hopefully not.
– Recirculate it later. I can’t believe the
sun is out today, boys. – It’s so nice. – It’s a beautiful day.
– It’s absolutely. – [SluiceBox Steve] Why do
we always mine in the crap and it’s beautiful after? – [RCSparks] Look at this now. Look at it.
– A little bit of shine. – [Rookie] There’s lots of shine, what do you mean little bit, come on. – [RCSparks] I like that
it’s buried in the rock. I don’t I don’t see as
much as usual though. That’s concerning to me. – [Rookie] We haven’t washed it yet, we never see it start– – [RCSparks] Yeah, I
don’t really see much here either though that is also, there’s a piece here.
– There’s lots here. – [RCSparks] Here, here, is there? – [Rookie] It’s in a dirt but there’s stuff there.
– I think your definition of lots and mine are two different things. – [Rookie] So much, look at all this. – [RCSparks] Let’s see the gold. – [Krazy Joe] Oh, we got some gold there. – Tons?
– Tons. – [SluiceBox Steve] We could retire from tons.
– Grams, not tons. – [RCSparks] Grams,
yeah, I wish we had tons. – [SluiceBox Steve] Settle down, Rook. – [Rookie] Your hose work
is scaring me, Sluice. Quit splashing,
– He’s old, man. – Quit splashing.
– He’s old. (laughing) You’d think at his age he’d
have more experience with that. – [Rookie] Although, we
have to do the back as well ’cause I did see some
flakes on the last one. – [Krazy Joe] Excellent of job jobs. – Hey, slow, slow that pour.
– Nice and slow, nice and slow, yeah. Right over here, we’ll
start shaking it down. We’re gonna need the water
over for the pan too, for the classifier. Right here, sir. (gravel shuffling) – [Krazy Joe] More water. – [Rookie] I can’t give
you any more water. Sluice, water. – [RCSparks] There’s a piece right there. – Oh my God.
– Look at that, look at that. – [RCSparks] Nice. – [Rookie] See that’s my excavator piece. – That’s gold.
– Look at that. That’s beautiful. – Water.
– Where? – In here.
– Wow. – Yeah. So we can just start squishing
it all down through there. (gravel shuffling) That’s good. – [Rookie] We’re still running it. (gravel shuffling) – [RCSparks] I don’t see anything. – [Krazy Joe] We’re running it. – [RCSparks] Yeah if you
wanna put it on the table– (exclaims in shock) We can put it (exclaims). – [Krazy Joe] I don’t see
anything, we’re running it. – [RCSparks] Look at that. – [Krazy Joe] I said we’re running it. (RCSparks exclaims) Okay, then we are running it.
– Let’s throw that away. – We’re running it.
– Yeah, let’s just throw. – [Krazy Joe] Unless you’d like to just throw that away.
– Maybe we should pave some roads with it. – Yeah, we could do that. (water gurgling) – [RCSparks] Back to the table. (laughs squeakily)
Yes. Where I can concentrate
and watch the gold flow. (aggregate clattering) Start loading up. So this table, a lot of people have written in the comment section, they don’t get why this
table is on the show. This actually helps separate all of this aggregate from the gold. All the lighter stuff gets washed away, leaving the gold on here, which allows us to capture
it in a little bin, yeah. Or capture it with Joe as
you can see right there. – [Krazy Joe] Of course,
I’m watching it come down. – On the table.
– Yeah. – [SluiceBox Steve] Wow,
that is a huge piece. – [RCSparks] Yup, wow,
that cut is paying out. – [Krazy Joe] See how far up it goes, ey. – [RCSparks] Yeah it’s segregating, it’s separating itself
from the other stuff. – [Krazy Joe] That’s
why we use this table. – [RCSparks] Yes, that’s exactly it. It helps us get rid of a
lot of the lighter stuff and then we can run the concentrate on the wheel of gold. (water gurgling) Look at that, easy to pick out. All the rest just getting washed away. – [SluiceBox Steve] You missed it. – [Rookie] Did he miss? – He missed it.
– You missed, Joe? – What?
– Oh, it’s right there. – [RCSparks] What about all the rest of the stuff?
– There’s more here. – There’s another one.
– There’s more coming. Pay attention.
– Nice. Good eye. There’s two there or– – No.
– Yeah, no, one. – [Rookie] No, there’s one in the corner. It’s so hard to get out, oh, I just exposed a bunch.
– Right there, yeah, in a little pocket there. – [Rookie] Nice. – [RCSparks] Oh, that is a nice piece. – That one right there.
– Yeah. – [Krazy Joe] I was more telling you– – [Rookie] There’s more here. There’s gold everywhere. – [RCSparks] Good, good, good, good. (low rumbling) (water gurgling) I think it, there we go. – [Krazy Joe] Yeah, it is. Yeah, really heavy like five or six grams. – [SluiceBox Steve] Oh, rolling away. – [RCSparks] Yeah, that one is trying to get away.
– Down on the bottom, we’re gonna get him up here. – [RCSparks] Who’s spooning today, boys? Who’s gonna get us started? – Settle down. – [RCSparks] You didn’t
get here until after lunch, you barely did anything. Why don’t you start doing it? – [Krazy Joe] Well, I was gonna sit here and drink my beer but okay.
– You can have the honor of feeding the gold. – [Krazy Joe] I see a piece
right there, do you see it? – Gold, right on–
– Oh I see it– – [RCSparks] Right there. – [Krazy Joe] In it goes. – [RCSparks] Round and round,
there’s our first piece. It’s like a ball of gold,
rolling up there, yeah. – [Krazy Joe] It’s gone already but– – [SluiceBox Steve] Riffle rider. – Yeah, it’s gone.
– Terrible view there. – Oh, there we go.
– Wow, there we go. – There’s some.
– There’s lots. – [RCSparks] Nice, I love this part, man. – [Rookie] It’s kind of my favorite part. – [RCSparks] Come on,
boys, there’s the gold. Finally.
– About time coming up. – [RCSparks] I was worried
that it wasn’t paying out in that cut anymore. Not seeing the smalls at all though, like I don’t see any tiny stuff. – [Rookie] I’m okay if
we’re getting chunks and not smalls.
– Yeah, that’s a very, that’s a very good point.
– Chunks are better to small. – Still paying.
– That’s a very good point. – Yeah, it’s still paying. – [Rookie] Like see that, that’s as small as I’d like to see ’em– (laughing) Hey, I’m good with that. – That cut’s paying.
– I guess I shouldn’t be complaining, that’s true.
– I like it when they get stuck in the ridge. – [RCSparks] Yeah, that’s
true, riffle riders. – We got some pay in.
– Were gonna have some, I know there’s some in there.
– Yeah, look at that, look at that.
– Look at that. Whoa, oh, look at it come up. – [RCSparks] That’s a big piece. – Oh, that’s big.
– That’s my gold tooth. – Yeah, I see it.
– That’s a fang. – Nice, there it goes. Hey, you had your chance at the gold tooth last time, I told you to hammer it in, you never did. – Oh, yeah.
– There it goes. – Whoa, there it goes.
– Nice. – There it goes.
– That’s good. Wow.
– Look at that gold. – [RCSparks] There it is, a rider. – [SluiceBox Steve] It’s the riffle rider. – [RCSparks] Nice job. – [Rookie] That took forever
to come out of that stuff. – [RCSparks] Dude, it’s
stuck, again, how many (exclaims delightedly) (whooping)
– Nice job. – [SluiceBox Steve] Felt the
whole table go like this. (laughing) – [Rookie] The big stuff does get stuck in the bottom, it’s so weird. – [RCSparks] Yeah. So that is it, hey. There it is, look at it, look at it, look at it,
look at it, look at it. – [Rookie] Yeah, look. – [RCSparks] There it goes. – [Rookie] Oh, there’s a
bunch up of ’em coming up. – [RCSparks] Beauty, beauty. – [SluiceBox Steve] Yeah, let it run out. – [RCSparks] Dump some
out, swirl it around, let’s see we got, ’cause
that was exciting. – [Krazy Joe] Okay, let’s get
rid of some of this water. – [RCSparks] Yeah, in three, two, one. (gold clatters) Oh.
– Floor. – Concern, did you just
dump some on the floor? – [SluiceBox Steve] I thought
something flew this way. – [Krazy Joe] No, that was
just a splash of water. – [RCSparks] Oh my gosh, look at that. Still.
– We had a couple of fresh splashes there. – [Krazy Joe] It’s as much water, I swear.
– Man, that is a huge one actually. – [Rookie] That is a giant chunk. – Yeah.
– We gotta weigh that. – [RCSparks] Can’t focus in that, yeah. – It’s more than 2.4 grams.
– Oh my gosh. – [RCSparks] Wow. – Look at that.
– I see– – Look at this one too.
– Yeah. – [Rookie] A lot of black sand today too. – [RCSparks] There is actually, there is. – That’s huge.
– Let’s try to get the magnets. (whooping) – [RCSparks] Yeah, good job you guys. (whooping) Good job, yeah, good job. – Yeah, where’s the magnets? No, I’m saying that is– – [SluiceBox Steve] 3.4. (exclaims thoughtfully) – [Rookie] 3.1. Gonna say 3.1.
– That big? That looks nice. – [Rookie] It’s curled over though. – It is, yeah, I see that.
– Its got big air gaps, so. It’s only one way to find out. – [RCSparks] Scale. – [SluiceBox Steve] I’m gonna give it 3.4. [Krazy Joe] Scale. (swishing) – [RCSparks] That doesn’t
look as much, does it? – [Rookie] No, not now that it’s dry. – [RCSparks] Nope. – [Krazy Joe] We still got the big chunks. – [RCSparks] I wonder if the water was making it look bigger. That’s still pretty dang good though. Those two chunks are huge. – [Rookie] They’re giant. – Okay.
– I wanna know. – See, grams.
– I gotta know. – Okay.
– I said three, one. – Hold on.
– I said three, four. – I say–
– Okay, put it on. – [Krazy Joe] Two, eight. (gold clatters) (RCSparks humming) – One, eight.
(Rookie exclaims in shock) – What?
– That’s kinda disappointing. – [RCSparks] One eight. – [SluiceBox Steve] That is disappointing. – [Rookie] Wow. – [RCSparks] Well,
considering what we pulled at the beginning of the season, that’s actually pretty good. I’m stoked.
– Yeah, it is. – That’s awesome, yes.
– That’s still huge. – [SluiceBox Steve] It just
looks heavier than it is. – [RCSparks] 3.3 grams just in those two. 3.2.
– Wow. – [Rookie] See, that’s okay. – [RCSparks] Nice. Yeah, here it comes. (gold clattering) Nice, I love the way
this is going already. – [Krazy Joe] Awesome. – [SluiceBox Steve] Six. – [Rookie] We got lots more. – [RCSparks] Except we’re going, oh good. – [Krazy Joe] We’re gonna be at 10 grams. – [RCSparks] Dude, there is lots. – [Krazy Joe] Eight, nine,
nine, nine something. – [RCSparks] Hey, you can’t
guess after, nine something. – We’re nearly there.
– Yeah, let’s go, we’re gonna see 10.
– We’re gonna be 10. We’re gonna see 10 here. – [SluiceBox Steve] We’re gonna make 10. – [Rookie] Any time we hit 10, I’m happy. – [RCSparks] Come on, get in there. (gold clattering)
(bowl thudding) 10, six.
– Yeah, 10, six. 10, seven.
– Yeah. 10, 10.
– Nice. – [RCSparks] That’s almost as much as last season total, in one thing. – In one thing. – We had 11 grams.
– And we were almost disappointed in it. – [RCSparks] 10 seven. I know, it’s ’cause I’m getting
YouTube Gold crazy I think. I think I’m getting greedy.
– The more you get, the more you want. – [RCSparks] Yeah, that’s exactly it. – I’m just really surprised
that nugget is only 1.9. – Yup.
– Remember the one we got two weeks ago?
– Yup. – [Rookie] See, this one was curled over and it had a–
– It was 2.4. – Lot of air in it–
– Sluice, why don’t you do the total pour in there? We can see what our total season gold, or what our season total is. – That’s a lot of gold.
– Yeah, it’s cool ,hey. – That’s a lot.
– Pour slow. – [RCSparks] Come on, buddy,
let’s see it, 12, 30, boom. – 40.
– 40, keep going, man. 40, 48. 50.
– 50. – Two tri ounces.
– Where were we at, 69 last week?
– 69. – My favorite number.
– 69. – Nice. – [Rookie] 79. – [RCSparks] Almost 80 Gs. – Just shy of 80.
– 79.7. – Isn’t that crazy? (whistles in shock)
(gold shuffling) – [RCSparks] Wow. – [Krazy Joe] .3 grams short of 80 grams. – [RCSparks] Right here, mode. There, 2.56 ounces.
– 2.56 ounces. – Oh.
– Wow. My, God.
– Okay, so our season gold is 3/4 of an ounce. I didn’t expect this. – We have absolutely–
– Killed it. – Destroyed that.
– Crushed it. – [RCSparks] Smashed it, smashed it. – [Krazy Joe] Oh my God. – [RCSparks] Starting to feel a little bit like Tony Beets here. Season 10 of Gold Rush is coming up. – That’s right. – In October.
– That’s right. – [RCSparks] That’s the whole
reason we even do this, yeah. – [Sluice And Rookie] Yeah. – We’re gonna have to–
– Now, we’re gonna have to catch up.
– Are we gonna compete with them, huh? – [Rookie] Well, we’re definitely
gonna steal their ideas. (laughing)
– Yeah. – [RCSparks] Hats in, boys, on three. One, two, three. – [All] YouTube Gold. (laughing)
(whoops) – [RCSparks] Another awesome one. – [Rookie] Goddamn.


  1. use a dump truck they say it will be fine they say lol i saw this coming while you were talking about what you were going to do well live and learn keep up the awesome job guys this is my favorite show you put out the season ender is going to be heart breaking

  2. What you could do with the hopper is you could have the dump truck dump dirt in front of the hopper. Then you can have the bulldozer push small amounts of dirt into the hopper as needed. Also if you flip th hopper around you wouldnt lose as much pay.

  3. Damn I love you show and channel! This is awesome entertainment, information, and education on the awesome hobby of RC. Thank you for that man. YOU TUBE GOLD baby!

  4. YOU NEED MAKE MORE EPISODES!!!!!! Like everyday one episode! It is the best series ever in youtube. I have watched all episodes from S1 E1.

  5. You can lower the gate on the feeder. To slow feed down. That what they are for, to control and keep a steady flow of material.

  6. Really awesome part 22 , this place still gives a lot of gold, it is a beautiful harvest and especially the very good work of the whole team !!

  7. The Volvo is definitely the way to go when feeding the plant . But it might be better to try it on the shaker deck plant it should have the ability to process more dirt then the trommel

  8. Make rc adventure rings!!!! The average gold band is around 10 grams so you have plenty for all the crew to get a ring!!!

  9. hey, you know what could be a cool YouTube GOLD challenge? mining in the dark 😉 not without lights obviously, but with scale lights 🙂

  10. Great to see the Volvo pushing the rest of the plant to keep up. So good to see innovation in site layout and design. Best episode in a while. Now just want to see the night shift edition. Would be fun to see you guys try a marathon session and try to run the mine for 24 hours straight. A lot could go wrong! And how about installing some sort of shelter over the top of the mine so you guys don't get rained on in future?

  11. This really makes me want to go prospecting and start moving my own pay. Problem is, I don't think Illinois has ever turned up gold.

  12. i briefly ran a volvo a40d at a landfill digging a clay pit for a new cell. those beasts get through some sticky stuff, but once they're stuck… they're STUCK. one guy got his stuck so bad that a damn d6 lgp got stuck trying to get him out! had to use a deere 750 excavator to pull them both out. i also had the misfortune of running a deere 400d… those suckers are LOUD. controls are a tad wonky on them too. volvo uses rocker switches, deere uses buttons. deeres cant shift into 6wd while moving. the volvos can.

  13. If the Volvo's load is too big for the hopper ( LMAO ), could you use the smaller 3-D printed Dump truck to load it instead ? YouTube Gold Baby…

  14. If the white hopper convayer was slower than the other two goin to little red it shouldn't of clogged up but at least when short handed you know it works.
    Great job keep YTG alive in the rc mine

  15. I love using the Volvo! I think that is an excellent way to do it, my suggestion would be dump it on the ground in front of the machine, then use the bulldozer to feed the machine slowly but certainly faster than the front end loader ever could do.

    I think you might be able to find a nice mix where you can speed everything up without overburdening the systems.

    Thanks a lot, I am surprised how’s very much I enjoy this.

  16. @youtube gold I think u guys should put a canopy on the mine and also use the crushed rock underneath where the truck go through behind the red trommel

  17. I gotta say im sick with bronchitis at home. Feeling like crap. But can always count on YOUTUBE GOLD to cheer me up!! AWESOME EPISODE FELLAS!!

  18. Does anyone have any links for any of these excavators and bulldozers and dump trucks or any of those mining machines?

  19. Great video as always man o remember the lipo fire last episode that was crazy. I kinda disappointed when the shaker wasn't shakin but u got it going lol it'll work till the end of the season lol keep up the good work

  20. Do you get the pay dirt from an actual gold mine or is it from your property? Loving the series, this is the only thing I’m extremely curious about because I know gold is plentiful in Canada..

  21. Best cinematography yet, such a dramatic build with that music, gave me chills!! Discovery needs to take some lessons! Love this show. Why does the season have to end? How about a night run to finish out the season like Rick's crew did ?
