The Silvermine Farm in the Gold Coast will be open again after heavy downpours this weekend.

The Gold Coast Goldfields Council said it will reopen to the public on Saturday afternoon after heavy rainfall and snow.

The council said it had not received any reports of damage at the Silvermine, but a spokesman said the farm was being treated as a hazardous area.

The Silvermine is located on the Goldfields Estate in Silverdale, just north of the Gold Fields.
