Juniper Ridge Opal 2013 Mining Season Closed!
The Juniper Ridge Opal Mine 2013 fee digging season is closed!
Last fall right before the mine closed we managed to do a few things to get ready for this year. With help from some good friends we cleared away several tons of overburden. Using heavy equipment we enlarged the parking area around the pit, cleared out a lot of the loose material in the bottom, and expanded the pit quite a bit. This operation uncovered several new Opal veins with spectacular material in them, and made acces to some existing veins much easier!
All of the material we cleared out and knocked off the pit sides was dumped straight into our tailings pile and there was huge amounts of Opal in there. Just working the tailings this year will pay off big for those that want to crawl over them and do some surface collecting or some very light work with a rock hammer!
