At the Mano De Dios Amber Mine, there were a wide variety of equipment and vehicles at the job site. Miners were issued digging equipment such as shovels to aid in mining operations. Workers there also utilized pickaxes, presumably to be able to cut out the harder pieces of amber out of the ore. They were mining for amber, which contained mosquitos which had gotten trapped in there millions of years ago. Two vehicles were parked in front of the mine, a van and a pickup truck, both presumably for storage and carrying supplies. A package can be seen in the back of the pickup, but is too far away to make a positive determination what it is.
