A long-lost gold mine... supposedly worth billions. A curse muttered by a man just before he was hanged for murder. Missing bodies. Torn-out maps. A seemingly endless list of clues. Slumach's gold is the stuff of Canadian legend. The mine is said to be located only about 40 km from downtown Vancouver, near Pitt Lake. And it's been attracting treasure hunters for decades. Meet the brothers who've chased the legend behind Slumach's gold for 60 years, as well as the contrarian who delights in disproving them. And then, follow the 39-year-old adventurer who thinks he's a hair's breadth from finally finding it.
