  1. Hi all, I haven’t been here in a while, but I still wanted to share some fantastic finds from this summer. As soon as I returned from Newfoundland, I hit the ground running, and now I finally have a chance to relax with a hectic semester coming to a close. For some background, my undergraduate thesis looks at the structures and stratigraphy of a small peninsula off the western coast of Newfoundland called Cow Head. On our long trek up there, we stopped at Green Point, a global geologic benchmark for the boundary between the Cambrian and Ordovician. The geologic features here

    Help with easy Trilobite ID

    Hello all, I am a new member here and haven’t searched for fossils for 50 years, when I was 14 years old living in upstate New York. Currently on a trip to Newfoundland with my wife while visiting a friend in Harcourt, NL just 15 miles East of Clarenville I started digging and opening shale rocks in his backyard. I found a few smaller items that were non identifiable fossils but when I opened this one I knew immediately from my teenage years it was a trilobite but after googling I soon discovered there are many many varieties and periods which led me to this forum. I’m

  7. Hey guys I remember the ROM has on display a slab cast of Mistaken Point, Newfoundland fossils on the Dawn of Life Preview Gallery. Being an admirer of Mistaken Point is there a place where we could perhaps get these replicas? Or are collectors allowed to go to Mistaken Point and take casts of the fossils there for keepsakes? I understand no one is allowed to take fossils there due to government laws so I am hoping that casts are an excellent alternative for amateur collectors.

    Fossil ID Help - Newfoundland

    Hi everyone, I was on vacation in Newfoundland, Canada with my family earlier this month. We were doing some very amateur fossil hunting in the Conception Bay area and my 6 year old found the rock below. It was found in a shale area, we also found a number of small pieces with trilobite fossils (none were spectacular). I havent had any luck identifying the pieces by googling and she is super eager to learn about what some of these fossils might be. If anyone has any thoughts it would be greatly appreciating. If any additional info (or pics) would be helpfu

  11. Hey guys, I picked up this trilobite this spring at my local show and rediscovered it today while cleaning up. The label states it is a "Braintreela sp. cf. ouangondiana" from the Lower Cambrian, Chamberlains Brook Fm, Adeyton Group, Manuels, Newfoundland, Canada. Problem is I can't find any references to "Braintreela" online but I did find a paper that referenced Parasolenopleura ouangondiana that comes from the same formation. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1475-4983.2005.00494.x/pdf The plates in the paper seem to match what I have so am I correct to modify my label to i
