  • The amount of opals I found from the 3 yard scoop was insane!! Well worth the money. Amazing mine, amazing product and helpful mine owners. My recommendation is to stay at the cabin at the royal peacock and mine rainbow ridge. There is absolutely no way to be disappointed with your haul. I will be mining every year from now on
  • We had heard from three different people that Rainbow Ridge was the best opal mine in the area and had by far the best tailings... well it didn’t disappoint. In addition, several people there during our dig had also been to other mines in the area and all said that Rainbow Ridge had the best tailings... so there you go! Glen & Donna were great!!! They were so good with my two boys. They went back to the office twice to make sure we had the right tools and took all the time we needed to figure what we were looking for. Great experience.
