'This is a view across the "Smith's 6" opal field in Lightning Ridge showing mullock heaps scattered about.
To the left is a machine mounted on a truck, this is called a blower. It is like a super vacuum cleaner which sucks up the opal dirt from the floor of the mine to the surface .
It is then dumped into a tip truck and taken to the agitators for washing.'
