In an exclusive clip of the upcoming episode of "Gold Rush," Beets' crewmembers, including daughter, Monica, try to find new ground by testing the soil for specks of gold.

The two women on Beets' female-driven crew are seen running through the process of separating the dirt from their prospect lots before calling Tony over for a check.

When Beets arrives, he takes a turn at panning the soil samples for any trace of gold ... and things don't look good.

In the wake of the blow, Beets was forced to shut down his digging sites and begin a search for new ground to mine.
