miner hammering chisel to drill blasting hole

Miner hammering a steel chisel to dig a blasting hole.­

After about 5 hours of hammering, the hole will be large enough for a stick of dynamite, and blowing it will free some ore that the miner will then take out with a wheelbarrow.­ Maybe he will get a $10 pay at the end of the day.­
