Miner buying Dynamite sticks, fuses, blasting caps and Ammonium Nitrate mix at the grocery store - Potosi (Bolivia)

A stick of dynamite like this one costs about $2, and the fuse and blasting cap are less than $2.­ Dynamite is used everyday in local mines, and you can buy it about everywhere in Bolivia.­

The store also sells pink bags of premixed ANFO (Ammonium Nitrate with Fuel Oil), an explosive that is cheaper and more powerful than dynamite, but hard to detonate.­ Dynamite is used to trigger the blast of the Ammonium Nitrate mix.­

Ammonium Nitrate (a common fertiliser) was used to blow up the Oklahoma City federal building.­
