Opal mine safety workshop

Individuals wanting to apply for a mineral claim in the Lightning Ridge mineral claims district are required to complete this course as part of their application.


This two day safety awareness course has been combined with the mine operators’ workshop. It covers the knowledge and skills required to be a mine operator at an opal mine, including safety policy, hazard identification, maintenance, risk management, people management, emergency response plans and contractors.

The cost of the workshop is $165.00 and includes a generic Mine Safety Management Plan (MSMP) that can be tailored to suit your operation, MSMP supplementary documents, log book, additional reference material and templates, a printed copy of the NSW opal and gemstone mining guide and morning tea and lunch on both days.
