  1. I went fossil hunting at Tillywhandland quarry on Turin hill, Scotland today and found a complete Mesacanthus mitchelli fossil. It is probably the best one I have found yet. Both the head and tail are present. The head is so well preserved you can see both the gill rakers and eye socket.

    About Vilpovitsy quarry

    Vilpovitsy quarry in St.Petersburg region of Russia is known for its trilobite fossils. Does anyone know what the coordinate (latitude and longitude) of Vilpovitsy quarry is?
  3. Germany is one of the top fossil-hunting destinations in Europe, having plenty of easy-to-access, highly productive localities that are visited every day by experienced collectors and families alike. The Swabian Jura (or Swabian Alb) region (southwestern Germany, near Stuttgart) has a highly significant geological heritage, which is part of the network of the UNESCO Global Geoparks since 2015. The most popular destination within the park is the area around the village of Holzmaden. In the early 20th century, several quarries dotted the area. Nowadays, the mining operations ha

    Another Quarry Find

    Found another cool piece at work today- is it anything special? It came out of a load of rubble from the Milton Quarry, in Milton, Ontario.
  6. Had a good time with my club yesterday when down at Batesford Quarry and got a nice haul for a first time down there. Not to many larger shark teeth in the piles but there were millions of regular fossils (mostly spines) but always a welcome sight to behold either way

    Any ideas on this find?

    My brother works at a rock quarry in Eastern Iowa and recently uncovered this fossil in limestone at a depth of 200 feet! It does appear to be hollow. This is a very heavy piece of limestone sitting against the tailgate of a truck for scale. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you!!

    NC Quarry Access?

    I haven’t been active on here in years and caught the hunting bug again after moving back to NC. I used to hunt the Castle Hayne and Belgrade Quarry in NC when they had it open to hunters. Does anyone know if they still allow hunters or are the quarries in NC closed now?

    Ammonite quarry

    Hi all! This is a small trip report from a quarry by the town of Mikhaylov, Ryzan Oblast, situated in 200 km from Moscow. The place is very well known among the public interested in fossils, especially ammonite collectors. There are 4 quarries in a tight group, operated by different companies. Mikhaylov quarry is the most famous of them. The experience is very similar to that of other Callovian - Oxfordian quarries (in my previous reports), but ammonites suddenly take the place of gastropods! Pretty exciting, isn't it? Unfortunately there are not many spoil piles as Jurassic overburd
  10. I was lucky enough to be invited on a hunt to a southeastern North Carolina quarry for yesterday. This quarry contains exposures of the Eocene Castle Hayne formation and the Cretaceous PeeDee formation. The quarry had not been hunted at all since late April / early may, so with all of the rain we have had over the summer and from the recent Hurricane, I wa pumped to get in there. It was a small group of people, only 8 of us, but all experienced quarry hunters. After arriving and filling out all the necessary paperwork we headed to the first area around 8:30. This area was a small section in an

    Sandstone fossil ID

    I found them in abandoned sandstone quarry around 10km West from Chmielnik, Świętokrzyskie, Poland. I have no idea what they can be. Can anyone help?

    Hi all! This is another report from Oxfordian quarries in the vicinity of Moscow. Previous 1 (Peski) Previous 2 (Timonino) Peski again. If you read my fossil sites overview, you know that Peski quarry is a unique site where you could find lots of Carboniferous fossils, Middle Jurassic dinosaurs, calcitic Callovian ammonites and very good Oxfordian gastropods. The latter are the most numerous and easier to search for. My trip took place in April and was mostly a success with a good variety of finds

    Hello folks... A question for our Dutch colleagues. Is the Winterswijk quarry open to collecting these days? I am alsways looking for new intersting places to go find old dead things and this place looks intriguing.

    Fossil ID South Africa

    I live in the Western Cape South Africa. I have found a few fossils that I cannot ID. I'm new at fossil hunting and identifying what I have found, so all help is really appreciated. I have managed to ID some of the fossils, sometimes rocks I have found. Found this particular fossil in a quarry site, the area in which I found it has a grey, clay hardend shale. I split the rock, both rock sections have an impression. The fossil is 45mm H x 1.5mm W. Help with ID please?

    Hi all! Today I'd like to introduce you to another place to hunt for small Oxfordian fossils, a quarry by the village of Timonino, located to the east of Moscow. The finds and hunting method are pretty much the same as in the previous site. Basically, surface collecting small Oxfordian fossils, usually gastropods, is a distinct sort of fossil hunting in the Moscow region. To the east of the city lies a sort of "Oxfordian belt" with similar geologic setting, finds and hunting conditions. Here's a map of the Oxfordian sites in the region. The quarries in operation are marke

    St. Paul find

    I found this specimen last summer in the St. Paul Stone Quarry in St. Paul, Indiana. I think this site is Silurian. The oval on the left is 1.5 x 8 cm. The one on the top is 4 x 10 cm. Lots of smaller ones. They're flat, not raised. Any idea what they are?

    new to the forum, what's this?

    Hi to forum members. I'm new here. I'm not a fossil hunter but love reading about Earth's deep history and occasionally come across simple fossils. I live in eastern North Carolina, about 40 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The fossil pictured was found at the site of an old quarry. The pattern looks a bit like coral, but I really don't know. The rock is about 7 inches across. Suggestions about what it might be, and age?

    Quarry Find

    Hello! Found these cool pieces while at work- they came from the Milton Quarry in Milton, Ontario, Canada. I am completely new to fossil identification, but am very interested to learn more! Can anyone tell me what these might be?
  20. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found the following ones. I think I have identified most of them but I would like to know your opinion. Thank you very much!
  21. For the purpose of this discussion I will refer to my find as an egg. Even though it may not be. I found this “egg” at a quarry in Southeast Michigan. I have done as much research as google will allow and still am not confident on its identity. On a side note I found another fossil in the same area that I am pretty sure is a type of brachiopod. Not sure if that would help with the identity of my “egg”.
  22. The second week start very strong,with a visit in a aalénian to bajocian quarry
  23. Today I joined a local club on a trip to a dolomite quarry (Ordovician, Galena Group) in northern Illinois. This was the first trip of the year as the rest have been cancelled. The quarry was quite massive, so social distancing was not a problem. We hunted in rock piles in the middle of the quarry (very far from the high walls) that were scheduled for crushing. It was quite a beautiful place. Besides some hammering, all I heard were large birds that were circling above. The fossils found here are pretty standard for the Ordovician rocks in the area. The Galena Group here seems to b
