Six years ago, Christine and Greg Clark walked away from their Brisbane home and construction careers to chase their dream of striking it big, 4000km away in the West Australian Goldfields. Having spent their life savings to set up their mining operation, the self-taught prospectors' future rests on gold, for better or for worse…Thinking big are Vern Strange and Leon Marsh, aka 'The Dirt Dogs'. These best mates have sunk a million dollars into their heavyweight mining operation. Its centerpiece is the Dogs' 45-ton dry blowing plant – named 'Goldzilla' – hand built to extract precious ounces of gold from hundreds of tons of raw dirt. Having ploughed one fortune into their season plan, the Dogs are under massive pressure to unearth another, just to break even…Meanwhile, remote prospectors Kellie Carter and Henri Chassaing are going it alone. Armed with their high techdetectors, the best friends seek their fortune out in the farthest depths of the wild outback – where rival prospectors fear to tread. It's a high risk, high reward plan - far off the map and hundreds of kilometres from help. But for Henri and Kellie, it's the only way to reach the precious undiscovered gold patches that could be hiding the ultimate reward.
