Official Press Release from Spencer Opal Mines and the Opal Country Cafe:

As the month of July comes to a close, we are happy to let everybody know that the digging on the mini mine is now open five days a week! Based on the very positive feedback and the numbers that we got from our insurance ladies, we will now be open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday for digging. We will still be closed all the way around on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
The rules will remain the same, and they are as follows:
You need to bring your own tools, we recommend a spray bottle, garden trowel or garden claw, and a hammer.
You must have some sort of eye protection, safety glasses, or sunglasses work just fine. 
Everyone who is going to be in the digging area must be at least 16 years of age. And we need to have something that can verify age like a school ID, or driver's license.
We highly recommend dressing appropriately for the heat! Remember that you’re going to be sitting outside in the full sun on a pile of rocks! So sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen are always a great idea!
We will be giving you guys the buckets, but if you wanna bring something to put all your tools in to take out with you that is more than fine!
As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call at 208-374-5476, and we will be happy to help!

At Spencer’s Opal we try to bring the beauty of Opals to life. Our top of the market miners help us mine beautiful opals, just for you. Then they are washed, polished, and cut to make a variety of jewelry and gifts.


Introducing our new fresh for the summer menu: we will be doing fabulous soups, fantastic salads, and phenomenal sandwiches! Stop at our famous café and grab a bite to eat. We serve meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
