Pala Chief Mine

Recommended Posts

Got over to the Pala Chief & Ocean view mines for a little rock hounding, and even found a few things. :brows:

Looking across the valley to the Tourmaline Queen Mine?

Very nice finds!!!

Are you able to hunt the area without paying any fees? Or was it a fee dig operation?

Unfortunately it is a Fee Dig. You pay and they turn you loose on the large tailings of the Pala Chief Mine. San Diego County, CA

I've seen some stunning pieces come out of those places. The only time I went I got mostly low quality fragments, but I did find a nicely terminated green micromount.

Very nice samples!  One day my Tourmaline will come.  :knight-horse:  O Schorl !  Looks like this is not the day.
