Yggy, the Royal Peacock and the Bonanza mines are the two in Virgin Valley. The Royal Peacock is actually mining back into a ridge, and you get to go there and all you find, you keep.
Check 'em out :http://royalpeacock.com/
The Bonanza is going through tailings piles: Check them out, too:http://bonanzaopals.com/
There is also a mine not far from the event that I want to check out, too; turquoise down near Tonopah, and the Oregon fire opal mines.
I will have a blast this summer, find anything or not.
