On Diggers: Gold Rush KG and Ringy charged into the American west for one of the most dangerous digs of their careers. This time around the guys scoured the American west for century-old nectar that once belonged to the great American hard-rock miner during the prospecting frenzy of the 1800s. Ahead of the Diggers crew lay three mines that once generously flowed with epic amounts of silver and gold waiting to be rediscovered — and discover they did.
The mystery item this week was an essential part of life for an American miner, the pickaxe. Travelling along the edge of the Matchless Mine, Tim Saylor finds the epitomic symbol of the mining days gone by. Rusted and worn over years buried under debris, rock, and dirt, an artifact left behind like the mines that were picked dry of minerals years ago.
