All of the opals from my mines are sold on consignment through my son's company VIRGIN VALLEY OPAL MINES at his NEW website.  He also has opal mining claims for sale in Virgin Valley, Nevada.


       My Dominion/WRT claims are NOT open to public collecting, digging, touring, rockhounding, leasing or sale. Mineral trespass will be dealt with both criminally and civilly.  I have agents who monitor the claims. JOHN CHURCH OF SWORDFISH MINING DOES NOT HAVE ANY RIGHT TO CHARGE YOU A FEE OR GIVE YOU A 'TOUR" OF MY CLAIMS OR TO DIG ON MY CLAIMS-- THIS INCLUDES  MY CLAIM WHICH HAS THE HUGE PETRIFIED LOG OR TREE KNOWN AS THE STONE TREE IN VIRGIN VALLEY.....  AND IF HE DOES OR OFFERS TO PLEASE NOTIFY ME IMMEDIATELY!!!   He removes my claim posts so that he can "try" to dig there illegally and steal from me.  He has no rights to MY claims whatsoever!!!   John Church is a highgrader and thief and you can click here to see the proof. IF you see any of this activity by John Church, please do 3-4 things: (1) CONTACT ME with details; (2) CONTACT US Fish & Wildlife Ranger in Virgin Valley with details; and (3) CONTACT and report details to the HUMBOLDT COUNTY SHERIFF in Winnemucca, Nevada; (4) get photos and videos if you can and forward them to all of us.   THANK YOU!!!! 

 My remaining 3 claims in the WRT/Stonetree/Dominion Opal Group are not for sale and are being privately worked.
