Kristen: I hope it’s not a bear.

* Kristen: We feel like we are so close to finding the answers to the haunting of this town.

* Kristen: Something is telling us to leave and we need to listen.

* Patrick: Is this a wild goose chase?

* Eddie: Now what do we do with it?
Stan: We dig it out.

* Stan: We’re looking at millions of dollars of gold right now.

* Patrick: Were they trying to keep something in this mine that they didn’t want to get out?

Synopsis: The crew has been working for two months now. They’re pulling about $30,000 in gold per day now. The mine owner gives the guys the day off and brings their family in for a cookout. Larry announces that they have hit the break-even point, so they are now in profit. Later that night Marissa, Dingus’s 9-year-old daughter, is missing. An all-out search begins. Jamol hears a noise where he is searching and takes a closer look. Greybeard headed about 40 to 50 yards down the road and heard her scream. He found her. She is reunited with her parents. Marissa tells them she saw a shadow peeking out from where she was found. Kristen asks her several questions about the shadow. Marisa was afraid it was going to hurt her. Jamol tells Patrick that he also saw what Marisa saw, only it was up on the hill. Kristen and Patrick investigate the area where both sightings happened. They investigate Jamol’s sighting first. They head down the hill and wind up where Marissa had her experience. You can hear something moving. Patrick sees something pass by Kristen very quickly. They now investigate the concrete structure Marissa hid in. They hear something fall. The shadow detector they set up on the concrete structure goes off several times. Patrick does an EVP session. Patrick sees something move on the thermal camera. He heads up to check it out. He does not find any evidence to support anything was up there. Back at the mine Kristen and Patrick share the results of their investigation with the guys. They all discuss the findings and their thoughts. Two days later, Kristen and Patrick are contacted by someone related to a miner on the previous crew. He tells them that the previous crew was hearing voices and seeing shadows. He also informs them that the Crescent Mine was owned by the Freemasons for a time. There are three granite boulders around the mine and should form a triangle. The two try to find the stones and enlist Stan to help them find it. He points out the granite rock immediately. Three drill holes are on the rock and they form a triangle. Stan confirms that it is very likely a second mine shaft. Eddie uses the excavator to try and find the second mine shaft. After a little digging they find the new portal. Patrick and Kristen send RIPA2 into the newly found mine shaft. What they see looks to be in pretty good shape. They come to a stop at a bulkhead with the Freemason symbol. They bring out RIPA2. Stan, Eddie, Kristen and Patrick all enter to investigate. In the mine they have been working suddenly the water stops flowing. Bucket exits the mine to investigate and finds the valve has become dislodged. Fixing it halts mining for an hour. Back at the new shaft they reach the bulkhead. Patrick scans the bulkhead with the K2 meter and he gets a reading. There is only stone and wood in that shaft. Eddie suggests that they break the bulkhead and then let RIPA2 go back and check it out first. Eddie gets to work taking down the bulkhead. RIPA2 is sent in past the bulkhead. Patrick loses control of RIPA2 halfway down the tunnel. They all trek in to check on RIPA2, it’s taken a lot of damage. Patrick and Kirsten try to get RIPA2 working while Stan and Eddie continue into the mine. They find some good veins of high grade. Patrick’s head lamp goes out. The K2 meter is completely lit up. Kristen and Patrick start to hear creaking.
