Our Story- Mining our own Business

Owners, Ray and Diane Wood with their three daughters have been mining in the Virgin Valley for over 20 years. We are shareholders in the Bonanza Opal Mine which is one of the oldest Opal Mines in the area dating to the early 1900s.

We also mine at the other major mines in the area ;the Rainbow Ridge and the Royal Peacock.and have found fantastic opal specimens.
