by Robert G. Haill
The fascinating and raucous history of an enduring Australian boom town. The outback outpost of Cobber Pedy has been the focus of a sustained opal rush since 1915. OPALS OF THE NEVER NEVER explores the town, the gem, and their inexorable link. Historians, sociologists, gem collectors and curiosity seekers will appreciate the singular phenomenon that is Cobber Pedy.
OPALS OF THE NEVER NEVER is a lay person's guide to opal mining. Australia supplies opal to the jewelry trade of the whole world, and Coober Pedy produces the bulk of that.
Coober Pedy (originally known as the Stuart Range) is an outback Australian town in the far north of South Australia, in the middle of a desert. The Aboriginal definition of Cobber Pedy is "white man in a burrow."
U.S. mineral rushes for gold, silver and eventually uranium were brief and furious -- the hasty, rollicking communities that sprung up to support them are now ghost towns. Yet, while Cobber Pedy is a boom-town, its longevity defies the textbook definition and makes its history unique and fascinating.

150 pages including b/w and colour illustrations. This book relates my experiences of opal mining - from my inexperienced beginnings until the present. The knowledge I have accumulated can help you to locate opal, too. I know the reality of opal mining: the hard work, the excitement and the disappointments. What a gem it is! And what a thrill it is to uncover opal, in the ground before you! I have published this book myself because I feel that those who are interested in opal should have access to the facts; facts drawn from fourteen years of experience and not just the product of a superficial approach, as appears to be the case with many of the books already written about opal. I take pleasure in presenting to you the results of my experience. Opal mining is big business today, particularly at Lightning Ridge, where increasingly large amounts of money are being invested in the industry itself as well as in supportive industries and tourism.
