N7: Mining The Canyon Walkthrough
Once you land on Taitus, you will learn from a datapad that the YMIR Mech was bought from Harrot on Omega, and apparently has power problems. Because of this, the previous owner left a trail of power cells that lead to some valuable resources at the other end of the canyon. Grab the first power cell and insert it into the mech and it begins to walk. It will shoot through the canyon wall and continue moving. Follow it, picking up the power cells when necessary to keep moving.
Eventually, you will run into two Varren that are hovering over a power cell. They shouldn't pose a threat to you, so just deal with them to retrieve the power cell they were guarding. Insert the last power cell at the end of the canyon and get away from the mech ASAP. When it destroys the final wall, the Mech self-destructs. By doing so, it reveals the hidden chamber and you can recover the resources in it to end the Assignment.
