Explosive experts fill holes with ammonium nitrate before another blast. The explosive is in a liquid condition to make it easier to fill the holes. The mounds in front of the truck are the holes drilled by the machines; when filled with explosive and set off, they will shatter the rock into manageable pieces for use in the embankments.
