Graham open cut at the very end of the leaning tree fault line that stopped in my claim named the Australian opal hunter,unfortunately all the claim holder’s now has sadly passed away but I still remember all the stories as just before Terry retired he worked with me at one of my claims 40 minutes out of town.
Its over 40 years now since i first went mining at lightning Ridge at 19 years of age, I was fascinated when I seen my first gem as I started of as an Australian goldsmith jeweler making a ring that was designed around a beautiful Australian opal. On my first holiday I had to go to this outback town, there was no seal roads rough and ready outback town cowboys pioneers sheep shearers and hard men the miners, rarely would you see a woman on the streets or around the claims but there was some families with children in town.
The first trip and tour i caught the opal fever the bug got me, today i mine a little bit and have returned back to my original trade jewelry custom made, a lot easier on the back then conventional underground mining unless you are involved in open cut which is totally mechanized as long as you have very deep pockets, because unless you are finding some good gemstones extremely expensive way to prospect and have a look at what possibly could or could not be underground.
