Our Opal: An Ethical Choice

At Broken River Mining we are committed to being both environmentally and socially responsible.

Sue and her small team use environmentally responsible procedures in mining and processing all BRM opals. We mine small sections of land at a time and we always rejuvenate the land when we are done.

All opals are mined by us in Queensland, Australia.

Boulder Opal reveal videos

One of the most amazing things that I get to do everyday - if I am lucky - is to be the first person on the planet to expose an opal and gaze upon its beauty. To find, extract and split a raw boulder opal is like no other experience. To share this experience with me, please follow along at @brokenrivermining.  

Best, Sue
