Are these both ok? The ice was thick so the explorers used dynamite to help them cut/break through. Thanks

I don't agree with Jeff's answer below. I think you have two possibilities: The ice was really thick so the explorers used dynamite to help them break through The ice was so thick that the explorers used dynamite to help them break through

The ice was thick THAT explorers used dynamite to break through. "Cut" is not appropriate, since it would be a clean cut like a knife slicing through.
