The crew attempt to enter through the dry entrance

After attempting to access the cave via flooded entrances, even considering diving blind in one episode of the show, Blind Frog Ranch’s crew attempt to enter through the dry entrance during season 2 episode 7.

By measuring the levels of radioactivity in the area, the team search for a dry entrance to the cave.

They’re using high tech equipment, helicopters, drones and drilling equipment to find their way into the cavern and uncover potential treasures.

Poisonous gasses explored at Blind Frog Ranch

Blind Frog Ranch season 2 episode 7 sees the team find a way of entering the cavern via a dry entrance and they’ll need to drill a small hole in order to make their way into the cave.

Despite radioactivity being useful in pointing the team in the right direction of an entrance, the team have to consider the safety risks of exposure to radioactivity as well as avoiding the inhalation of poisonous gasses.

Radioactivity emits from the newly drilled hole during season 2 and as well as this health risk, the team’s lives are potentially at risk too as more intruders are on the land again.

As per AirThings, Utah is known to be a US state with one of the highest concentrations of radon: “As a radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer, it’s important for all residents to be aware of radon, what it does, why it is so prevalent, and what they can do about it.
