Next Episode of Ghost Mine is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
In the remote woods of Sumpter, Oregon lies one of the richest gold mines in the United States that was abandoned 80 years ago when a series of tragedies gave it an infamous reputation for being haunted. Now, a new owner has decided to take on the notorious legend and reopen the mine, assembling a colorful team of miners alongside a pair of experienced paranormal investigators, in hopes of finding a fortune.
In the series premiere, the gold miners and paranormal team head to an abandoned mine along the Elkhorn Mountains in the community of Sumpter. The mine, said to be haunted, was recently reopened by new mine owner Larry Overman. According to Overman, his last crew walked off the job due to the hauntings and their own personal paranormal experiences.
After a cave-in and one miner's quitting (Duck), the team continues mining for gold. Paranormal investigators Patrick and Kristen use a robotic probe called the "R.I.P.A. 2" ("Remote Investigator of Paranormal Activity") and make a discovery in the eastern tunnel. Through research on the town, they discover that the bed and breakfast they later investigate used to be a hospital that treated injured miners and a masonic temple. This leads them to believe that the whole town, and not just the Crescent Mine, is haunted.
After weeks of working in the mine, the miners finally strike gold; however, power failures occur. Meanwhile, Kristen turns to a local Native American historian for help as she tries to figure out what's going on with the paranormal activity that she avers is being picked up in town. The historian says that "the dredge," an old gold mill built on a riverboat in 1935, had disfigured the land with its 8-mile long hole and scared off all the wildlife. When she and Patrick investigate the dredge, they record what they believe to be a full-bodied apparition of a miner named "Joe."
While working 16-hour days in the mine, two miners claim to have experienced something that frightens them and seems to be paranormal. After hearing their story, Patrick and Kristen encounter what they term a "phantom wind" that they believe lends proof to the miners' claim. Through research, Patrick learns that on August 13, 1917, a fire broke out in the cook's quarters of the Capital Hotel, and the entire town burned down. So he heads to the local cemetery to see who perished in the blaze and perhaps identify the voice they claim to have captured on their audio recorder, whom they call "Joe."
Patrick and Kristen say they find clues of the mine's connection to the secret society of the Free Masons; they believe there is a secret passage to another tunnel and set out to find it. They say "a mysterious presence" has sent "a threatening message" by disrupting the mine. During a campfire, Dingus' 9-year-old daughter goes missing after reporting a shadowy figure peeking through the trees. Stan tracks down a new mine shaft and quickly has his crew excavate it.
Despite finding large amounts of gold in the Crescent Mine, the miners vote to begin work in the recently discovered mine shaft. However, they are cautioned by Patrick and Kristen, who both believe an evil presence is lurking inside the old tunnel. Their feelings are backed up when they claims to capture a full-figured apparition at the face of the shaft who they think may be guarding the mine. With the mining season coming to an end, the miners start blasting the new mine. They quickly get freaked out when claims of paranormal activity arise, but they still go for the gold.
