Visited Tingha last week and found plenty of smoky quartz. The piles were all damp from recent rain and fairly easy to dig but if you waited for the bulldozer to create a new mound the stones were very easy to find and collect. $10 is well worth it I would have thought. Interesting to see some of the workers collecting stones from the drop zone and then pass them out to some of the fossickers...a nice touch.

Well done Wallie. The "boss" and I are heading to Tingha in October and we hope to find a few smokies too.
Thanks for the post mate.
