  1. I am planning on getting some U-dig shale and was wondering what to use to split it? Thanks in advance.
  2. Got my u-dig shales in the mail and went through the pieces and found this. Is it just a piece of a trilobite head or something else? It's about 2cm. Thanks!

    A Utah Trilobite

    We are just back from a delightful fossiling experience in Utah and Colorado. I want to share just one find now, an Elrathia Kingi from the U-Dig site outside of Delta. There are great descriptions of the quarry in other posts, with directions. I have been here before and always had a satisfying experience. The arrangement this year is that you can either locate yourself someplace in the quarry and break piles of shale the U-Dig folks have conveniently collected for you, or you can break shale out of the quarry yourself and then further split it to see what it might hold. You can break a lot

    Acrothele subsidua

    Found associated with Elrathia kingii and Itagnostus interstricta trilobites. See field trip report here:

    U-dig Trilos

    I got a nice delivery of shale from udig for Christmas, i've just been in the freezing cold splitting and having fun. Here are my finds. I'll post better and more clear pictures when they dry. I washed them and put them infront of the radiator to dry, is that a good thing?

    Had an awesome day digging at U-Dig with @FossilSloth So the hound and the sloth hung out today and we pounded rocks from sun up to sun down. I found the largest Asaphiscus wheeleri I've ever seen and Justin scored a good number of Elrathia kingii. The find of the day a was massive Asaphiscus wheeleri. The trunk is full of Utah trilobites to prep this winter. Had an awesome day. Exhausted yet determined to find some more. The U-Dig season closes soon and I already miss this place. Justin an

    Perenopsis multi-plate from U-Dig. @Kane an old timer to the site showed me were to find these and after a few hours I found a couple with 5+. I said I'd get you another one, but perhaps I could up the stakes for another E. rana. Stay tuned!
  8. My wife and I just got back from a 1700-mile road trip from our home in Northern California to do some trilobite hunting in Utah and Nevada. It was a 5-day trip, with a total of about 8 hours of digging spread across 2 days, but well worth it. I will give you the highlights here. After driving across California, we spent the first night in Reno, then headed out on Highway 50 toward the U-Dig fossil quarry out of Delta, Utah. We spent the second night in Ely, Nevada. Along the way, we stopped in Austin for lunch and helped the owner of a nearby trading post identify an unknown fish fossil t

    U-Dig anomaly

    Here is a paradox that was found at U-DIG while searching for trilobites. At first I thought pelecypod but as I started prepping I didn't find a shell. Instead I found it full of small cubes. I didn't take a pre-prep photo but I stopped prepping so you can see the shape and the gray surface. The white cube is one centimeter. Second photo.

    U-Dig Utah Dig

    Yesterday morning my cousin Matt picked me up at my in-laws in Alpine, UT at 6:30 am and we travelled down to U-Dig south of Delta to dig for Cambrian trilobites and other marine life. It was a three hour drive and we came into the quarry at the perfect time. Robin (Rob), the helper on site brought out some very neat finds including an ammonite hash, ammonite, and an Asaphiscus wheeleri with a green tint to it. Rob guided us to a spot that had been ripped up the previous day by their onsite bulldozer. There were large slabs of shale everywhere for the splitting and we where the only ones out t

    Any Ideas?

    While we were at U-dig in Utah, Kim found this looks cool but does anyone have any idea what it could be?
