Robertson lands in Timmins, Ontario, where he discovers that he’ll be spending a day mining for gold. He meets a couple of prospectors who take him deep in the bush to begin their search. A hard day’s work takes on a new meaning when they have to clear their own path through the forest with an axe. During the quest, Robertson learns how to stake a claim, prep the zone and set a charge for explosives. With his ears ringing, all that is left at the end of the day is a pile of rubble and a karaoke machine!
Next, hundreds of miles to the north, Robertson travels to Moosonee for a day working on a rail gang replacing rail ties. It is grueling work, but essential in order to keep Canada’s trains running smoothly. Near the end of the day, there is no better way to celebrate than to rip apart a beaver dam before the flooded waters cause serious damage.
