We plan to visit your mine the 2nd week of September... another "rock hound" couple and ourselves. Your web site is great... hoping to have some "good luck" digging!

Just returned from a visit to the Royal Peacock mines. Had a great time. Julie and the mine hosts taught us alot! I'm soaking my beautiful finds in water now and will put them in mineral oil once all the sediment has come off. We have display specimens and possibly some jewelry pieces. We're happy miners! We'll look forward to seeing you again!

A few days ago I found myself with the option to take some time off and did so. I had heard about the mine from a friend some time ago and figured I'd give it a shot. On the Friday the 7th I hopped in my car and drove from San Diego and arrived on the 8th after spending a night in Fallon. I set up camp and went around the campgrounds meeting with fellow rock hounds before turning in. Sunday I worked the tailings to get an idea of what I was looking for when i would try the wall the next day. I had some luck on the wall and left on a good note in terms of mining. The experience in all was fun and a much needed change of pace. I was ecstatic when I found color and it was a pleasure meeting every one I did. Despite the long trek I'm looking forward to coming back with some friends in tote.
