The price of gold is at a record high — and when gold spikes, so does gold fever. For the prospectors in Canada's Yukon, the race is on to search for every last speck of gold. It's week three for Ken and Guillaume on Moose Creek, but they've barely started sluicing. Nonstop rain is flooding the creek and jeopardizing their cut, and employee Tanner wants to quit. On Sulphur Creek, Marty, a highly respected self-made miner, is building a new sluice from scratch.
