Gulch, once a roaring gold mining center, has fallen on
hard times. The villainous banker, Smedley Pewtree, is
forcing the few families left to pay up or get out.
During a fierce blizzard, the town’s populace
crowds into the eerie and deserted Nugget, a former
gambling palace reputedly haunted by the spirits of
long-departed miners. Actually, the true scoundrel is
revealed as none other than young Rock Quarry, the
handsome cowboy who suspects the presence of an
undiscovered gold vein and wants to rid the town of
everyone before they discover the truth.
