Caption: Open cast mining. Explosion of blasting charges at an open cast mine. Carefully placed charges will break up a large volume of rock and push it away from the face so it is easier to remove. This mine is a source of apatite, used in the production of phosphate fertilisers and as an ore of rare-earth elements. Photographed at Koashvinsky pit, Mumansk, Russia.
