Season premiere, two hour special; the three crews: Hoffman Crew, Dakota Boys, Parker Crew; attempt to reach their claims. The Dakota Boys are back to Porcupine Creek Claim for one last try at the gloryhole. Parker Schnabel is trucking equipment to the Scribner Creek Claim. Parker finds little gold in the test drill holes, following up the initial survey, that had found good gold. The Hoffman Crew minus people afraid of jungle diseases and dropping dead of them, move their equipment from the seaport of Georgetown to their claim. The Hoffmans discover that the area around their Q.O.D. Claim contains diamond in same paydirt as the gold-bearing material.

The good ground found on the Q.O.D. Claim was claimjumped and mined out while the Hoffman Crew were preparing to go to Guyana. This is the area on the claim that when they initially surveyed it was being mined illegally already, by some claimjumpers. Parker gets advice from Tony Beets, to prospect on an old creek channel, where Parker finds a minable content level of gold. Parker goes finding people experienced in the Klondike as all of his crew is from Alaska, and are not experienced with permafrost, so stripping overburden inefficiently. He recruits Greg Remsburg. The Dakota Boys start draining the water out of the gloryhole. To do better surveying, the Hoffmans acquire Off-road motorcycles. They find a creek with an anticipated $30/yd. Greg advises Parker on how to remove overburden, and gets them to gravel paydirt quickly. The Hoffmans move Little Red to Patience Creek on the QOD.
3 "In Too Deep" 2013 November 8
Steve Robbins is hired by Parker Schnabel to recondition Little Blue at Scribner Creek Claim. Greg Remsburg dumps the concentrate from the sluice boxes, losing all the gold. The Dakota Boys hire a drill rig to find bedrock at the gloryhole at the Jim Nail Placer Mine, but the drill rig is unable to function well in the hole, so they are unable to determine how deep the hole goes. The Hoffman Crew move their final equipment to their Q.O.D. Claim, including a rock truck, excavator and some containers, including tools.
