The Devil’s Canyon area of British Columbia is home to the largest creek side gold deposit the world has ever seen. It’s also one of the most hostile terrains for survival on the planet.

There are a few miners still willing to do it the original way - venturing to the edge of civilisation with only what they can carry on their backs. Three extreme prospectors, Ben van der Valk, Boyce Goff and John Belcik take the biggest gamble of their lives as they journey alone into the most remote areas of the Canyon in search of their fortunes on this self-shot quest.

These skilled miners head deep into untouched forest, and once they arrive, they have a slim window of time to find as much gold as they can before winter hits. All three men are forced to constantly balance their relentless desire to hunt gold with their need to survive. Raging windstorms, bone-chilling rain and snow, falling trees, hypothermia and deadly bears all stand in the way between these miners and the find of a lifetime.
