That is a M112 block demolition charge. It's 1 1/4 pounds of Composition 4 (C-4) plastic explosive. By itself it wouldn't be a problem but, unfortunately, it appears there is a weathered piece of detonating cord [also called det cord or primacord] underneath it. And that is probably connected to a BLASTING CAP—which makes the whole thing a problem. SOLUTION: BIP—Blow in Place.
