After watching an attack on a gold shipment which turns out to contain only sand. Sartana attempts to destroy Mantas and his gang before they can plan another attack. He also wants to discover the reasons behind the mysterious incident. Disguised as a Mexican he goes to Appaloosa, and stays in the saloon of dishonest Trixie, where he soon realizes that the person responsible for the shipment of fake gold and fake robberies is Samuel Spencer, an official of the General Mines, who is an accomplice of Mantas. Meanwhile, attracted by gold, another gunslinger named Sabbath arrives in town. In a failed attempt to kill Sartana, Spencer decides to get rid of the two famous gunslingers by pitting them against each other while he attempts to escape unhindered to Mexico. But his plan fails and surprised by Mantas, he is killed while the bandit is in turn eliminated by Sartana. Sabbath recovers the gold accumulated by Spencer, rejecting an attempt made by Trixie to turn it over to her and the local miners.
