Is It Any Good?

The Canadian Yukon Gold offers a look at the world of contemporary gold mining, which, if successful, can lead to millions of dollars in earnings thanks to the current price of gold. It also highlights how miners are still making the same sacrifices they made hundreds of years ago in hopes of striking it rich, including cashing in the last of their savings to purchase equipment and hire labor, and leaving their families behind.

It's not the most action-packed of shows, and much of the drama comes from dealing with broken machinery and settling disagreements between frustrated miners when things go wrong. But it does offer a reasonable picture of what gold mining is like today. Fans of this kind of Dirty Jobs reality entertainment will probably find something here.
