Kirsten Gum: Treasure Hunter: Golden Treasures

Tuesday, March 16 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Discovery Channel

Gum arrives by helicopter and rappels down the dangerously steep cliffs of Mount Washington in search of rare pyrite and quartz crystals. Next, she turns back the hands of time and visits the Roaring Camp Gold Mine in Northern California where she pans for gold as they did in 1849. Later she dives into the freezing waters of the Mokelumne River and tries out some more modern methods for hunting gold.
