Parker tells the couple he needs help and that is when Ilaura tells him that he will need to get creative because there are some good spots there for gold. It was a huge moment because when a woman shows up on Gold Rush that can out-prospect the guys, it is always a fun moment. Ilaura then offers to take Parker up and show him where there is some gold.

Ilaura and her husband Drew guarantee to Parker there is gold there. She then promised to lead him to all the hot spots. It was nice because Ilaura took the lead and she knows what she is talking about. She also might be the one person who can help Parker find gold and save this deal and keep it afloat.
