Tools are available for purchase or rental in the Opal Shop. However, most people prefer to bring their own. Here is a list of what you might need:
- Long handled, sharp pointed pick (Estwing Hoe Pick), rock pick, shovel, or garden rake
- Screwdriver #2 , 8 inch long blade ground to point, Ice pick (or similar tools)
- Small bucket-like container, plastic container and ziplock bags.
- Gloves!! Water squirt bottle, kneeling pad or carpet sample is good, hat and sunscreen.
No mechanical tools are allowed
Note: Our rental picks are not Estwing models. However, we do offer Estwing picks for sale in our gift shop. There are two types of Estwing picks. One is a small rock pick and the other Estwing is a long-handled pick. Both are important in bank and tailings.
