The Great Slave Helicopters Bell 212 (C-GKTL), operating under the operator certificate (OC) of ECO Copters of Peru, was being used to sling-carry supplies from Iscozacin Base, Peru, to a location about 15 nm from the Base. A single hook with two cargo nets was being used. While en route, about 8 nm NNE of Iscozacin Base, a slight bump was felt. It was then observed that items were streaming from the slung cargo into a forested area. One of the slung cargo nets had released its contents, which were explosives for seismic work. Both cargo nets remained attached to hook. There were no ground injuries. The cargo was recovered and a site clean-up conducted. The seismic company is assessing both the cargo net failure and the training of the cargo net loaders.
