When Tom Cameron the Lone Rider (George Houston) & his sidekick Fuzzy (Al St.John) learn about prospectors disappearing  in the vicinity of ghost town Parker's Diggings from their friend Moosehide (Budd Buster) & about several prospectors being cheated out of their claims by respected businessman Sinclair (Alden Chase), they decide to go to Parker's Diggings to investigate themselves, but even their welcome to the town is an unfriendly one as they are shot at by henchmen of local badman O'Shea (Frank Hagney), but can escape the bullets & enter the ghost town, where they soon find a secret mine right beneath the city, & in it Helen Clark (Alaine Brandes), a girl desperately in search of her father (Edward Peil sr), a mining engineer who had found a vast goldmine & set up a deal with Sinclair but had soon disappeared - what she does not yet know is that he is a prisoner of O'Shea, desperately trying to get information about the mine, & that O'Shea is actually a partner in crime of Sinclair, whom Helen trusts.

When Sinclair & O'Shea realise that Lone Rider & Fuzzy might have found some clues that might lead to them, and that all their henchmen might be no match for them, they try to get rid of them the legal way, accusing them of the murder of Gordon (Reed Howes), one of their henchies, but the Rider & Fuzzy make an escape, &, returning to the ghost town, find Gordon, pretty much alive.

To clear their name, they want to present Gordon to justice, but are attacked on their way to town & Gordon receives a stray bullet that kills him. Only thanks to 2 witnesses are the Rider's & Fuzzy's claims about the attack verified.

O'Shea has since thought up another ingenious plan to kill the Lone Rider: As he knows the Rider will come back to the ghost town to look for Clark, he pretends to become all sympathetic with Clark, sets him free & even hands him a gun ... the gun, O'Shea is sure, Clark will shoot the Lone Rider with once he spots him in one of the mineshafts. & the plan almost works, too, wouldn't the Lione Rider duck the bullet, & Helen step in just before the Rider can shoot Clark in self defense.

Back in town, Clark wants to finalize his deal with Sinclair, but Sinclair of course proves little helpful & is reluctant to accept a cheque, demanding 40.000 Dollars in cash before sundset ... only the bank where to cash the cheque is miles away, with only the Lone Rider maybe being a quick enough rider to make it there & back just in time. & despite him being attacked by O'Shea's henchmen, the Lone Rider not only makes it but also can arrange for O'Shea's arrest ... who talks, & talks plenty to drag Sinclair down with him ...

 

Rather mediocre b-Western in the Lone Rider-series, that pretty much neglects the spooky possibilities of the ghost-town/mine-shaft-sets for a straight forward Western yarn, plus George Houston (by then already in his forties) does not make the most impressive of Western-heroes, & hsi trained tenor-voice does not sit too well with the light atmosphere of a light series-Western.
