    Dude, I'm wearing gloves.

    Here's the video of the shot. I was standing in the middle of this not 30 minutes before I shot this video.

    They shoot every day, so everyday we have to layout pattern, then measure the location of the holes after it's drilled, then stake the zones after it shoots. This is actually less than half of what our duties are. There's a million other little things we have to do throughout the day.
    I took the pics over a couple of days, we go everywhere on the mine site and are right in the middle of what's going on, so I am actually working while taking pics.

    I'd trade it for a job in a tropical climate :)
    It has sound, turn your speakers on dude.
    I haven't seen a single flake since I started :(

    I do know where the gold room is, but I don't have access, they actually have hand-scanners and security guards posted at the door.
    Thanks for the digg, I don't have a shovel ^_^
