  • This was the BEST mine we've experienced. My husband and I are avid rock hounds. This is our tenth mine, but our first time mining for opals. We mined the tailing and found some incredible pieces...

  • Found many beautiful opals . One black opal.
  • Went there in September TWICE, you will find opal. I personally found something withen 5 minutes, however a lot of the opal there is potch. You must be very lucky to find precious opal, however all kinds of opal can and will be found here, including infamous black opal. You can tell when it's precious opal, as it will have many different colors. Glen and Donna-the owners- are great people who help you if you've never mined before. Just ask.
