Attached is a KML file that is the result of mashing the OpenStreetMap road data for Oklahoma up against the Hunton Group polygons from the USGS geological map for Oklahoma. I exported the lines from the roads where there was an intersection between the two. Some of the roads from the OSM data aren't accurate, and others are phantom roads or inaccessible trails. But overall, I think it's accurate enough to be useful. Hopefully others will find it useful too. Please let me know if there are other fossiliferous formations in the state for which you would like to have this type of mashup.
electricshaman posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this specimen all by itself, neatly embedded in the surface of the limestone-bedded creek that runs alongside Big Canyon Road to the south of the White Mound site in southern Oklahoma. Geological maps confirm the site is Hunton Group, the same formation group as White Mound, although this matrix is much harder and more crystalline than the limestone at White Mound. This group ranges in age from Early Silurian to Early Devonian. The whole specimen was extracted along with some of the matrix. You might also notice the fossil looks like it's been somewhat dissolved. This
