Your very own Opal Mine right at your backdoor. Strike it rich!
There is a fully functional opal mine right on the land the Castle sits upon.
Mineral Claim #13804. Location 20-12.
Two 3 foot holes.
All gear included:
- Short throw hoist.
- Escape ladders.
- Pelican pick.
- Wheel barrow.
The mine is virtually untouched. Only around a total of 30 feet of drives.
The opal in this area is of the Nobby type rather than seam opal.
Before you do any mining, you will need to do a couple of courses which are conducted by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment. (Mine Operators Course and Mine Safety Awareness Course)
Current annual fees for the mining claim are $245.
Lets hope Sir Roy takes off his sunglasses down the mine….
