Synopsis: The new mining season begins. This time they start earlier. The whole team returns, including Patrick and Kristen. Even Greybeard’s father Duck comes back. Larry takes Stan aside and lets him know that someone was trying to get into the mine that collapsed at the end of last season. They decide they won’t be working the second shaft because the cost to get back in is too high and they won’t make any money. Over dinner Larry and Stan update the team on the old portal. Stan suggests finding another way into it. The spot where Greybeard felt the breeze. Stan, Eddie, Duck, Patrick and Kristen go back to where the air flow is. When they get to the spot tapping on it, it’s hollow. They formulate a plan and get to work. They load the dynamite for the first blast and once done wait for the smoke to clear. They go in and bar down. Greybeard notices fracturing in the ceiling. They clear out before a slab falls on them. Stan asks that RIPA gets sent in to check it out and assess the safety of the area. RIPA has been beefed up. Stan determines from the video feed that the cavern is man-made, a ball room. He sees a cave in, it appears to be man-made as well. After it’s determined safe they all head in to investigate. Stan states it’s colder than the rest of the mine and since it’s a dead end it should be warmer. Patrick locates a draft. Kristen finds and old tool, a scythe. Kristen and Patrick get a little time to investigate, until the next morning. They set up a camcorder for a 360-degree view. An EVP session takes place. When Kristen asks about finding that room they get a K2 hit. As the questions continue rocks start to fall as well as groaning and creaking sounds. The sounds start to increase and they back away from where they were. They leave the camera but they exit. At the campfire the miners discuss the current situation. The plan they come up with is to have some work a good heading and the bulk continue trying to get back to the gold. The next morning Kristen and Patrick discuss their findings with the guys. Kristen informs them they did their investigation standing next to the cave in. Then plays the audio of the falling rock and the response of “yes.” Greybeard grows concerned. Back to the western tunnel they prepare for a blasting. Jay gets to do all the drilling for the blasting, that’s 18 holes. He finishes and Eddie compliments him. Jay and Jamol prepare the dynamite. After the blast Stan gets radioed from Larry that he’s seeing a trespasser. Everyone gets in on the action trying to track him down and catch him. Larry tells them how he has seen this person several times now. Patrick stays behind to investigate as he is feeling like he’s being watch. He takes photographs of the whole area. One phot has an anomaly and he shows it to Kristen. That night they investigate the area and use a pickax from the period as a trigger object. They see a dark spot up in the trees. He takes her to the spot where he took the photo. He puts the pickax under the tree. Kristen suggests and EVP session. She gets responses via the K2. During the questions the motion detector goes off. After that it goes quiet. They gather everything up and conclude for the night. The next morning Kirsten and Patrick give the guys an update. First the trespasser is discussed. He shows them the photograph with the strange black figure. He goes on to speak about the K2 spikes and the motion detector going off. They play some audio from the EVP, it records some words that sound like they are in another language. It’s mentioned that it could be Swedish as they worked the mines too. The pair retrieves the camera left in the ball room to analyze it. Patrick spots something and they head back in to check it out. They turn off their head lamps and use a black light and find strange writing on the ball room wall.
