  1. Because it's only a short ferry ride away from the mainland, I often try to make a point to go to Vancouver Island when I have some time free, both to explore its natural beauty and to hunt for fossils in its rich and varied Cretaceous deposits. Much of the eastern coast of the island adjacent to the Strait of Georgia, as well as many of the smaller islands just offshore, are underlain by the Nanaimo Group - an ancient marine basin whose age extends from about 90 to 65 million years. Many of the shorelines, creeks, and quarries of Vancouver Island, where the formation crops out, can be explore

  4. This Cliff Face Is Packed With Fossilized Whale Remains Devon Bidal, (Hakai Magazine) Smithsonian Magazine, February 18, 2022 Yours, Paul H.
  5. Hello all, I recently collected this interesting permineralized fruit from the Browns River on Vancouver Island, B.C. This river exposes outcrops of the lower Trent River formation of the Nanaimo Group, which represents a relatively nearshore Campanian marine environment. The fossil itself was found in an outcrop of fairly poorly consolidated sandstone, which also contained large pieces of coalified wood debris and a poorly preserved, crushed ammonite. I'm not particularly optimistic about getting a positive ID on this, but I am interested to see what others think about it, and w
  6. I wanted to start a little info dump for new collectors in Vancouver! It is usually met with quite the shock when local residents of this huge city learn that fossils lay within a few blocks of their area! This site is most likely Eocene to Oligocene in age. It contains a surprising diversity of well preserved plants but oddly no insects or vertebrate material has ever been described at the site... The site has shown records of hurricanes, forest fires, volcanic events and even a tsunami! It is interesting to note a mix of tropical plant life with more cool weathered types are found

    Canadian Amber (Allenby Fm., 52.5-48 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    3.0g of amber, from the same lot in the two associated entries. This mid to late-Ypresian material comes from an old site near the abandoned mining town of Blakeburn, which site and its gangue piles are now technically owned by a coal mining company (although the existing legal claim of the individual who collected this amber is being overruled by the company). The amber is found primarily in association with Metasequoia sp. remains/imprints, however Pinus and Pseudolarix (among others) remains are also found in a lesser quantity at the site.

    Canadian Amber (Allenby Fm., 52.5-48 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    Rough amber from an old site near Coalmont, British Columbia. The original site is now closed to collecting, since a mining company somehow got a court injunction and has "jumped" the owner's legal, active long-standing claim. The claim owner has informed me that he is not able to collect larger specimens (>3g fraction), as he had been able to in the past.

  11. My mom picked up this oddity of a rock at the mouth of Chemainus River, one Vancouver Island BC. The River carves away the surrounding sedimentary hills. Is this a part of bivalves or ammonites???

    Albertonia cupidinia (Lambe, 1916)

    Presumably a slow swimming grazer-detritivore. Alternative combination: Elonichthys cupidineus Lambe, 1916. Taxonomy according to fossilworks.org. Diagnosis for Albertonia according to Schaeffer and Mangus, 1976, pp. 545-548: "A parasemionotid (as defined by Patterson, 1973, pp. 262, 287) specialized in having deeply fusiform body and greatly elongated pectoral fins. Small acuminate marginal teeth present on mobile maxilla and dentary. Suspensorium nearly vertical. Preopercular present; opercular and subopercular subequal. Longest pectoral fm rays about one-half length of body.
  14. Hi all. A real Newbie here wondering if anyone can ID this as Coprolite? It's 3" in length and weighs 100 grams (it's hard as rock). I found it amongst all the rocks on the beach on the eastern coast of the island (Georgia Straight side). Does that mean that it may have come from an ancient sea creature? Thanks for any info. Cheers!
  15. Hey all! Hopefully the pics are decent enough. I found this odd looking rock at my feet while out fishing in a creek in South Eastern British Columbia in the East Kootenays region. Any insight or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  17. Hi all, hope everyone is safe and healthy in these troubled times. What a great time to go over your collections and plan for the next trip. Found some info regarding fossils (Geo report) and petrified wood found near Stemwinder Park, Pickard Creek area between Princeton (fossil mecca) and Hedley B.C. Anyone know of the site? Example from someones find, undisclosed spot. We were going thru that area for work, now cancelled, so can't really justify the exploratory trip, but love to dream. . Just noticed the auctions! Must check here

    Petrified wood?

    I found an odd piece of rock when my apartment has it's second floor garden soil removed. My neighbor said that it looks like petrified wood but I just want to make sure. Thanks.
  19. Hi I decided to make this since the new Tyrannosaur from Alberta’s Foremost Formation, Thanatotheristes deerootorum has just been named and described. Enjoy!! Tyrannosaur bearing Formations in Canada: Formations in Alberta but most of the Formations on my list are I Alberta anyway. Horseshoe Canyon Formation 74-68 million years ago, Alberta: Albertosaurus sarcophagus, possibly Daspletosaurus sp. but no compelling evidence so far. Oldman Formation 78.2-77 million years ago, Alberta: Daspletosaurus torosus, Gorgosaurus sp. Foremost

    Fossils?

    I'm very new to fossil collecting and would like to check if these rocks are fossils. My apartment was built in the 80s and is currently undergoing massive construction due to the rapidly deteriorating structure of the building. I was given permission by strata to collect a few rocks from the discard pile and I came up with these. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1l7M5NQVfFNXUXIxwqfopnE_wnq1kCiijePd5yEZRyRI/edit?usp=sharing
  25. Hello guys! So at this new school my new friend Brad heard about my fossil hunting trips in Florida, and he wanted to have a go. This Christmas he will be going to British Columbia to visit his relatives. I want to ask, are there any fossil hunting sites in British Columbia and is taking them away legal? Thanks. Ho Lam PS. He will be staying very close to the American border, near the coast. He told me his parents drove him to Seattle. So I imagine he won't be far from the US, and might want to know some sites there as well.
