Famous opals and also about 100 million years ago dinosaurs roamed around this opal place named Lightning Ridge in Australia, and where in more previous times in Australia the indigenous aboriginal tribes roaming, often naked and with out any written language nomad’s hunters and collectors wandering mostly in Australia.
Graham Black blood line goes back to one of the early British that landed in Australia, and in modern times his opal mine at this 3 mile was the last open cut allowed, and there was a discovered found an ancient underground water stream and remains of ancient dinosaur remains that used to drink there, and possibly it was eaten by a giant water creatures that resembled today’s crocodiles that live in Australia, but 6 m of dirt dust sandstone & clay build up by time had to be removed first.

3 Mile Famous Opals.
When graham open cut part of the biggest black opal open cut mine in the world, “and now he is the only guy left that has a claim there but now the mine is Heritage listed”. He also was the last guy to work with the famous Barkley brothers before they passed away, they had many old 3 mile opal mine & claim only a stone’s throw from graham’s mine, shown here on Google maps. Terry was one of the true character that lived in the township of Lightning Ridge, opposite from the crocodile caravan park and for many years Terry Barkley worked underground but never discovered the famous Guinness book of record opal unto the mine was completely open cut.
