  1. Green Mill Run (Day 1)

    Good evening all. We headed out for Greenville, NC to hunt Green Mill Run this morning. Headed out from NJ (across river from Philadelphia). We stopped off at Conowingo Dam in northern MD to take a few photo. My daughter with her driving permit in hand did a great job driving through Baltimore and D.C. (Proud dad moment!). We bypassed the hotel and jumped right into the creek just before 7pm knowing we were only going to get about an hour to scope out the area. I had only been in the creek once before about two years ago with George Powell. It was a short but awesome day in the water. However this was my daughters first time. Some of you might recall we tried this trip together a couple years ago when we were rained out and I blew the engine in my Explorer while here in Greenville. So far things are going infinitely better! Will post an update after a full day out tomorrow. Native American pottery
  2. So I took a trip to GMR in Greenville, NC. Green springs park is currently closed and by the looks of it, i guess for a while. The entire creek took a beating with down trees that lay across the creek in many places. South of green springs park is still very deep, maybe 6 or 7 feet. I did manage to find access about 1/4 of a mile north of the park. This area was anywhere from ankle high to thigh deep, and I'm 6'3". I stumbled onto some pretty awesome finds as well as whale bone central, bulla's, baby intact meg teeth. For regular visitors of the creek, its going to look alot different. And from what i came across today, i plan on revisiting the spot next week. Water wasnt very cold either. Just wanted to spread the word.
  3. After some thought Ive decided to do a trip tomorrow to Green Mill Run in Greenville, NC. I think conditions will be fine until about 5 or 6 PM. I plan on starting early, so anyone interested in joining up let me know. I plan on starting about 7:45am. And working 2 favorite spots of mine.
  4. I found this in Green Mill Run in Eastern North Carolina. The photos are taken on 1/4" graph paper. It does not have enamel. It doesn't have the typical croc striations. It has a groove that runs along the inside curve.
  5. One more from Green Mill Run, Eastern NC

    One more tooth from Green Mill Run, Eastern NC. This tooth is about 3/4" and is unfortunately split in half, the back side is missing. The background is 1/4" grid. Any ideas?
  6. Green Mill Run--Eastern NC tooth

    I found this tooth while screening for fossils in Green Mill Run, Eastern NC. Any ideas? Aquatic or land mammal? It is petite in size, just over a half inch. Photo is on a 1/4 inch grid.
  7. Hey everyone, I was thinking about going out to the Green Mill run either tomorrow or Thursday before it rains again. Can anyone in that area tell me what the water level is currently like? Thanks in advance! ~ Justin
  8. Green Mill Run Fossils

    Hey Everyone. I have some fossils that I can't seem to figure our. All are from the Green Mill Run in Greenville, NC. If you need more pics just let me know. Thanks in advance for the help!
  9. Hello all, New poster here. I am a bit new to collecting fossils, attempting to take advantage of all fossil collecting opportunities I come by. I found myself in raleigh, nc a couple days back and decided to check out some local collecting sites. I found green mill run in Greenville, nc. From what I understand the creek is good for finding megadalon teeth. Spent about 2 hours sifting through the gravel. Found a few small teeth, some bone, and what looks like a small skull. I'm hoping someone can help me identify.
  10. Unknown Tooth

    Hey everyone, I was hoping that I could get some input as to what species this could be from. My personal opinion is saw fish rostral tooth but it always helps to get a second opinion. I found it in the Greens Mill Run in Greenville, NC. Thanks for taking a look!
  11. Big Bone Frag

    I hope some experienced collector can take a stab at this bone found in Green Mill Run. It is heavy and I have kept it because of the unusual landmarks on the back that look like 3 bumps. Thought someone might recognize this. My husband said there was no way he was carrying this since wet it was pretty heavy. Well here it is. Also adding one more below found I. Same trip.
  12. Little Help With This One

    Found this in gmr which has Cretaceous through Pleistocene fossils. As you can see there are several partials of the same pattern on this rock. Definitely some symmetry going on here. I've never seen anything like it from this location.
  13. Trip To Aurora Fossil Festival

    Hello, My name is Jay and I live in Columbus, Oh. I will be traveling to New Bern, NC next week to visit the Aurora Fossil Museum and attend the Aurora Fossil Festival. I have always wanted to visit Aurora, so what better time than during the festival. I'm, of course, planning on sifting through the piles at the museum, but was curious of other places in the area to hunt for fossils/shark teeth. After searching the forum, I was disappointed to read about the forum fossil trip to Belgrade Quarry being cancelled and that they would be closed to fossil collector's until the fall. Are there any other mines or quarries in the area that are open for collecting? I also read about many of the board member's trips to GMR, and I was considering to make the trip to Greenville. Any information on water conditions and easy access points (RickNC?) would be greatly appreciated. I do have an open water dive certification, but not advanced, so I would think the Atlantic is not an option. Also, I will be visiting with the wife a four year old son, so if anyone has suggestions on family activities, places to visit, restaurants, etc....to do while we are in town and I'm not neglecting the family looking for fossils. Thank you in advance for any information/suggestions you may provide.
  14. Gmr Trip #5

    I decided to hit the creek today. My dad and I had some good finds. There weren't any 2" mako's or great whites, just the regular warn and Broken GMR teeth. It was still nice to get out there and it was a really nice day. I had a really nice Modern Teiger Shark (fossilized of course). This is my biggest one yet.
  15. Gmr Tooth I.d.

    Would I be wrong in to assume that the tooth and fragments shown in the attached pictures are rostral Ischyrhiza?
  16. And The Moral Is...

    Well now I can say that I have been into fossils since the 2010 aurora fossil festival and do not see myself getting out of anytime soon. I am still hunting the infamouns Green Mill Run and a few sites along the Tar and Neuse rivers. Having so much sucess at GMR I do not want to leave, I was once told if a spot is producing dont leave that spot stay in it until it quits, well almost 4 weeks into GMR and its still giving me a few nice size teeth ever so often I am not planning on leaving. Yesterday was the best day that I have had, I took both my father in law and brother in law that sift the spoil piles in Aurora alot to GMR for a different kind of hunting the 1st few hours in I dont think that were liking it to much b/c all they were seeing was 1/2 teeth and bones, but then I had an idea. I said lets dig over there, I will dig and you can sift well my 50 year old father in law liked that idea, I think he just wanted to see me work my A$$ off,lol. Well all of a sudden alot of big bone started comeing out of the hole, and I told him usally from my past experiences when you start seeing alot of big bone like that teeth are sure to follow. Well sure enough all of a sudden a perfect 3" meg comes up in the shovel, his exact words and I quote were " snarge let me do some digging, I have never found one that big" Well in my head I was thinking you didnt find it, I did the digging all you did was sift. But I didnt say anything, and he stuck it in his pocket, another 15 min in and out comes another this time the best GW that I have ever seen, a perfecy 2 3/4". I grabbed that sucker and stuck it in my pocket real quick. He took over and dug for a little while pulling nice 1 1/2" to 1 5/8" GW and megs out of that hole, when he said that he back was starting to hurt, it was time for him to leave and go to the house along with my brother in law. They left with around 300 teeth ranging from 1" to my nice 3" meg. Well still in discuss that he took my tooth I stayed a little while longer, not finding much and extremly tired of digging since 7 am and its was now 6:30 pm I decided to head back to the truck, I picked up the phone and called the wife to tell here about the day that we had and about my big tooth that I "gave" away, she said "I know my dad has already called and told me that you gave a big tooth" "he said that he was very happy and that he enjoyed his time with you, and wished that my brother would spend time like that with him" Well when she said that I felt bad about thinking bad about the old man, and decided to call him myself, when I did I got so many thank yous and he wanted to know when we were going to go again. This made me feel very good inside as the man that I thought hated my guts for the past 9 years actually enjoyed his time with me and wanted to spend more time. So I guess we should all think before we act. Matt J. "
