About the MIne
The Lucky Strike and Valley View Thunder Eggs Mines have Agates
with the best range in colors, probably in the world.
The eggs contain mosses, banded agate, fortification, plumes and
geodes. The fees we charge are based on the weight of the mined
products. Leonard Kopcinski (Kop) is the owner. Both mines have
been open to the public for over fifty years. Both mines are also
We are located
a mile high in the scenic Ochoco mountains about thirty-five miles
northeast of Prineville, Oregon. Weather permitting; the mines will
be open mid May through mid November
daily from 8 am till 5 pm. While at the mines we think you'll have
a great time and a great learning experience. For the serious rock
hounds, after a day of digging lots of eggs (for only $1.00 a pound),
free camping, water and an outhouse is available.
Come on up and
visit us at the mines this Summer if you'll be in the area. We hope
you can make it to dig, or just pick off the pills out in front
of the mines, or just come up to say hi and have a cup of coffee
and talk rock.
If you can't
make it though we do have rough for sale by mail order. Visit our
Mined Products section of our Web site and we're sure you'll see
something you can't live without.
