Second time at the mine. Had a fantastic adventure both times. Would definitely come back when I have the time. Thanks to the entire staff!

My mom, aunt and I went up to the mine for our first time last year. It was great! We felt so welcomed! When we went up to the mine initially there were six people up there including the my group. We had the guide to ourselves and he helped us out so much! We even got to meet two brother who have went to the mine for many years, not only did they give us tips on what to look for and come over and help us but also gave us some of their small opals that they found and did not want. It was such a great experience we are planning and going up again!

i remember coming out to the ranch with bob and pat klineschmidt and had a lot of fun digging opal and exploring the high country above the ranch. i was at the rock shop when the big log was found and it was in the water trough and my son said dad there is fire coming out of the water and everyone came out of the rock shop with cameras and i was asked to lift it out of the water and it was just spectacular. i guess slim ended up with it but bob was going nuts and wanted to go to reno to get a large sum of money but pat said no. that was over 20 sum years ago and i miss the valley and hope to come back and dig and swim in the hot spring.

I would love to take a trip and stay a while to clear my mind and maybe find some opals. The war in Iraq and Afghanistan has really put alot of pressure on me and my family i think it may be a great place to rejuvenate our spirits. looking forward to coming in may
