on HOLD for D.H.

This is the DESERT FLAME opal lode mining claim in Virgin Valley.  It is 20 acres, measures 1500 x 600 ft, lode claim, situated on prior workings from the 70s and 80's, little worked, with PROVEN opal (see the photographs) and excellent silica layer above the opal bedding. Excellent faulting for opal formation and an area to the NW on the claim that we think will be better than current opal showing in the area already dug. Dirt road access to south claim border. No rival claims. Originally asking $12,500.- and price reduced to $5,500- but still open to offers. This claim was sold by us in 2013 and the buyer failed to get his paperwork in by Aug 31 a few years back. He bought another claim from us next to one of the big mines in 2016 and decided to focus his work there, so we just decided to relocate it and sell to raise funds to work on another claim several thousand feet to the NW where we have been digging black precious opal...  $250k in black opal has been found on a claim about 1,970 feet to the northwest down gully on the other side of the hill. We know the opal runs through this entire hill and area. This claim can be dug by hand for a number of years before equipment would be needed. We will be in the valley in late October 2019 (weather permitting) and from May 01 thru October 2020 and could show it to you in person  and it is available now for purchase  here (via secure checkout/paypal) (and we can hold it/wait one week for a check to arrive or arrange a wire transfer) as well before then. If you need more info or are interested let us know, we can answer any questions or provide more info.  Purchase comes with several days on-site help showing you the claim during summer 2020 mining season.
