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

         I have 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.  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): Land status and areas open to location; 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.  I offer full consulting services relating to prospecting, mining, and sale of gem and lapidary materials.  My consulting services are offered only for crystal, mineral specimen, gemstone, and lapidary material claims, with special expertise on the Virgin Valley Nevada Opal deposits.  I do not offer any services relating to gold or metals (I can refer you to someone for gold etc- if  you need someone).  I can also evaluate or appraise Virgin Valley Nevada Opals (see link HERE) and Gem/Mineral Collections (LINK HERE).  For mining claim matters, I generally hire out at:
