Sometimes, after a production blast, not all the charges detonate. This photo, taken in May 1999, shows the contractor setting off some charges that didn't go off in the larger explosion. The results of the larger blast can be seen just to the left of the explosion. About 100' of slope was set off in this explosion. I wasn't in any danger, as I was over 400' away and 200' above the blast site.
