LIGHTNING RIDGE

ADVENTURE




We can offer you a square foot opal claim on the Wyoming

The location of this field is 15 km North of Lightning Ridge. This rush started in the middle of the 1990s, and the miners are now up for a new task with extremely hard opal dirt where the hard digging is far more costly and difficult.



The Wyoming was discovered by two young miners that borrowed a drilling rig from a friend to do some prospecting on the side of the hill. After putting down a few test holes, their fortune was made when they brought many black opals out of the ground. This rush soon looked like a war zone, with machinery of all kinds everywhere. A few prospecting drill holes brought enough opals to give the claim owner a luxury life on the Australian coast. It was not unusual with truckloads worth more than 100,000 dollars.

The excellent bright gems are found from a depth between 5-15 metres. Our experience makes us believe that our claim on this field has the most potential. However, with opal mining, no one can ever tell.
