MINING CLAIM SERVICES, ASSESSMENT WORK, CLAIM STAKING, & CONSULTING regarding the Virgin Valley Mines and Opal Deposits

        My son CHRIS was the prior owner of the WRT claims and founder/prior owner of Dominion Opal Mines.  He sold everything to me in 2011-2012 so that he could prospect in other states and develop his fine mineral specimen business. He is not an owner or affiliated with Dominion Opal or the claims, but independently contracts out for mining services.   He is the expert on the Virgin Valley Opal deposits, geology, history, mining claim regulations and laws, etc.  He has long been in the business of prospecting, staking claims, re-staking claims, performing assessment work, mining, sales, and doing viability studies of gem, mineral and lapidary deposits, and finding lost mines and new deposits.  Chris first visited Virgin Valley in the late 1980's and in 1993 began serious prospecting and mining there, and moved to the valley and lived there in 1994-1995.  CHRIS was one of the senior Founding Members of the VIRGIN VALLEY OPAL MINER'S CO-OP in 1994-1995 with Leah Brashear and Larry Olds.  He is EXPERIENCED and capable of: Research at the local, State, and Federal and level, including historical collections and archives.  On-site & off-site studies and consulting/research have included (but not limited to): discovery; extent and limits of deposit; small mining by hand vs use of equipment and permitting; location and staking; value and marketing of a particular mineral or material; whether extension claims are needed, issues regarding extralateral rights, lode vs placer location, access rights and issues; Historical background on a particular deposit or property; etc.  Chris offers full consulting services relating to prospecting, mining, and sale of gem and lapidary materials.  Chris' consulting services are offered only for virgin valley opal, other crystal, mineral specimen, gemstone, and lapidary material claims, he does not offer any services relating to gold or metals (I can refer you to someone for gold etc. if  you need someone).  CHRIS can also  evaluate or appraise Virgin Valley Nevada Opals (see link HERE on separate page).  In this business you get what you pay for, don't hire someone that is a highgrader, doesn't know the mining laws, or pretends to know the history of Virgin Valley while making up lies (ie, John Church of Swordfish Mining)!  For mining claim matters, Chris generally hires out at:

  • $85.-/hr**;
  • $375.-/day**;
  • $2500.-/week**;
  • $______.-/project**;
  • **PLUS travel and any other related expenses.


CONTACT ME if you have any needs or questions!  CHRIS would be happy to help and he always sign a confidentiality agreement and (non-competition clause, when needed, so long as it does not interfere with his existing matters).  

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY/THESE SERVICES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN VIRGIN VALLEY UNTIL SUMMER 2019 AS WE HAVE TO GET STATE & FEDERAL LICENSES AND PERMITS .....  THANKS!
