This was the BEST mine we've experienced. My husband and I are avid rock hounds. This is our tenth mine, but our first time mining for opals. We mined the tailing and found some incredible pieces, many of which were full of fire. The tailings at this mine are partially comprised of the virgin dig leftovers, so there's a good potential for treasures to be found. There are mounds and mounds of material to comb through. We had spent the day before at the Royal Peacock digging the bank. At the Royal Peacock, we worked 4X as hard and found 10X less. We enjoyed both experiences, but the Rainbow Ridge experience was by far more enjoyable and fruitful. The owners were AMAZING...so helpful, kind and generous with their time. Owner Glen gave us a great introduction to the site and provided us with tips. He and his wife, Donna, examined and ID'd our finds, cleaned up the outstanding specimens and prepared them into display containers. We were so appreciative of them. These owners are the best. We will be back soon. We thought we had some great mining experiences before this, but this mine topped them all.

Rainbow Ridge is hands down the best opal mine to dig. The owners Glen and Donna are very helpful. Every year we find many unique and absolutely stunning opals! This is our 9th year and look forward to returning every season!!

My wife and I traveled with another couple from Klamath Falls Oregon to camp in our travel trailers at Virgin Valley Nevada hot spring. What an amazing place! First of all it's free and they have potable water on site so no need to haul your trailer up Doherty Slide full of water. There are several opal and sun stone mines nearby and the hot springs are perfectly relaxing. It has a continuosly running shower house which was clean and private. Our camp sites were nice and clean and well spaced with plenty of room for much larger RV's so we had no trouble setting ours exactly where we wanted. It also has several vault toilets that were very clean and tidy. We are definitely planning to go back when the desert cools down abit. Over all we all totally loved it. Can't wait to go back. Well worth the drive!

It is an awesome place. Have been there for several years. Some times you find big and sometimes you don't. Tailings have already been gone thru. Still some that have been missed. Virgin load is the way to go. Great place.

You'll take a pretty long drive down a gravel road to get to the opal mines, including Rainbow Ridge. Rainbow Ridge is well developed with a gift shop, etc.

There are others out there that are not as developed and you should visit, too. Check out Opal Negra and talk to Scott there. He's really interesting and wants to teach, which is great for kids and adults alike. And Scott won't let you leave without taking a little something with you. He'll teach you how opals are formed in petrified wood.

But...back to the gravel (more like 1" road base) road. As we were buying 4 brand new tires in Lakeview the next day, the young man there told us that for whatever reason, this road had been built with some pretty sharp large gravel. The last thing they told us when we left the shop was to be sure to take it slow on the gravel roads. They also told us that the highway patrol says the largest number of calls they get are from people who had 2 blowouts and 1 spare tire. So take it easy! ;-)

This was a great experience for us. Although it is not what we thought it would be like the experience was great. The guide was helpful and we did find some pieces. The free campground was nice and rustic. The hot spring was neat. There are lots of little fishes and big tadpoles in it.

Rainbow Ridge Opal mine is a unique one of a kind experience. The opportunity to look for black opal is very rare. The owner, Glen, truly cares about customer service and wants you to have a great experience. It's a Gem of a Find!

Be prepared for serious heat and maybe some wind and dust. Take an umbrella to mine to stay in shade and drink lots of water. May find some good opals to keep and talk about for years to come.
If you find any opal there, either put it in water or a damp cloth to keep it intact.
Otherwise, it will explode into a junk rock and have no beauty at all. Very important.
The Hodsons are a great family. n ave not been there for many years but memories are fantastic. Listen for the bullfrogs at the campground. Very cool.
Have fun and be safe.
Careful on the roads. Small cars may have a trying time getting to the Rainbow Ridge, especially 2 miles out. Take a reliable vehicle. There and NO close service stations any fuel is miles away. Take spare fuel. Do not damage your vehicle on the roads. Watch out for high centering on the road.
