Opal bearing regions of Australia are located in New South Wales, South Austra-, lia, and Queensland.

Opal found here may lie very close to the surface or at depths of 100 feet. By Marthw Williams Opal mining is done under almost primitive conditions. Usually one or two men run a mine with one man swing- ing a pick and shoveling dirt into a container which is hoisted to the surface and sifted by another.
