  1. Sussex Field Work (2015)

    Sussex is an interesting region in terms of geology and paleobiology. An amalgamation of different formations crisscrossing the larger Moncton Basin, this area was the target of study by local and foreign interests. Sussex is known for its potash mines, but one shouldn't forget the importance of the rich fossil localities doting the region. One such discovery was probably evidence of Canada's oldest forest, which is of significance. Matt Stimson, along with other professionals in the field, did some work in the area. I've had the chance to assist on occasion in a few field trips. The work done in this region is still ongoing and soon to be published. This time around we decided to target an area I've never gone or attempted to go yet. I'm used to quarries, but this time we would be spending the day at a road cut. Me and my braids Matt getting ready It was a few days after the Christmas holidays so it was kinda cold. The wind was nippy but we were lucky that ice hadn't formed yet on the ledges and that snow hadn't blanketed the area. The day started kinda grey but by the afternoon, the Sun had come out. It was a welcome event as the wind was freakin' cold. We made our way to the center cut. Traffic wasn't much of a factor as you can see cars coming from miles away, and plenty of space to park my car off the road. Area of Research: The rocks here are comprised of several units of interbedding sandstones and mudstones. Within these units, some several meters thick, are shale layers. Within these layers are indications of both plant and aquatic biota. Traces of fish material, scales, teeth, bone, are contained in some of the layers, forming some small limestone lenses and strata. Other areas along the cut feature plants. In all this mix, there are trackways. The work in the area is ongoing so all the data hasn't surfaced yet until publication sees the day. The cut showed signs of faulting, backed by folding. This looked promising We found many invertebrate trackways such as diplichnites and rusophycus. Most were very well preserved, even though exposed to the elements. From traces to scales and teeth, the record showed a high level of activity, condensed. The work goes on. We reached a spot where we encountered plants. I don't remember if these were referenced or cataloged previously. The preservation was fair, and we were able to find a good number of specimens. The New Brunswick Museum lab will have new specimens to work on by the end of the day. One of many specimens Root system Plant specimen showing shoot/stem and leaves We've covered only a small portion of the area. Different zones have been targeted for future study. Having done work for the past Summers, I can see why Sussex and its surrounding localities have been visited. The amount of fossils in the around is astounding, especially when talking about trackways. The work continues... - Keenan
  2. Greenops widderensis

    Acquired from @PaleoPat during a recent trade. This trilobite is originally from Arkona and is uncommon.
  3. upper ordovician orthocone nautiloid?

    Hi, I found this fossil a few years ago on the shoreline of lake ontario right in the city of Kingston Ontario. I believe the exposures here are upper Ordovician age limestone (Gull River formation) however there may have been fill brought in from elsewhere to stabilize the shoreline so this fossil may not be exactly local. It looks to have a siphuncle (acentral) and sutures (relatively close together) so I thought it appeared to be some type of orthocone nautiloid of some type. Based on Bill Hessin's field guide "South Central Ontario Fossils" I thought i might be Gonioceras anceps or Actinoceras but I really don't know. The pics here are not great, but hopefully someone has some ideas. Thanks
  4. So today I was excited when this book came in. It is not in print anymore and I was lucky I managed to order this copy. It talks about the gastropods, cephalopods, and vermes of the Georgian Bay formation of Toronto, Ontario. It even has some nice detailed plates of what can be found in the formation. I never even knew vermes (worms?) can be found in the formation.
  5. Bison tooth

    This tooth was found at wasagaming beach in manitoba canada. National park staff have identified it as most likely from a bison but i am wonder what people think the age might be based on its looks
  6. Found this at the Ottawa River?

    Was checking out the riverfront in downtown Ottawa and came across this fossil. Any ideas on what I may be? It's Ordovician strata, could It be a headplate from a bony fish species?

  11. Fossil Hunting in Ottawa, ON

    Hey friends! It's been a while since I've posted. I've recently moved to Ottawa with my wife (we're expecting a little one). The other day I was out at Victoria Island and found a few trilobite frags. Does anyone know of any great fossil sites in the Ottawa area?? Cheers, Dylan
  12. Hello, New to the forum and collecting fossils in general. Went to my moms house and mentioned that I had been fossil hunting and she says "I have found some fossils before." and she pulls out this giant worm like thing. This was found in Port Hope Ontario possibly up to 25 years ago. I have included both a wet and dry picture. The fossil seems to have a dark red tinge to it. Also the back had a ton of fossils on it I have attached a picture of the back as well. Any help with an identification would be much appreciated. Thanks Folks and happy hunting:)
  13. About 71 million years ago, a feathered dinosaur that was too big to fly rambled through parts of North America, likely using its serrated teeth to gobble down meat and veggies, a new study finds. The newly named paleo-beast is a type of troodontid, a bird-like, bipedal dinosaur that's a close relation of Velociraptor. Researchers named it Albertavenator curriei, in honor of the Canadian province where it was found (Alberta), its stalking proclivity (venator is Latin for "hunter") and Philip Currie, a renowned Canadian paleontologist. https://www.livescience.com/59815-stalker-velociraptor-relative-discovered.html https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/07/170717091023.htm

  17. Hey everyone. So I am new to fossil hunting. Like completely new. I am taking a geology class and one of my assignments includes going fossil hunting! So fun. I have gone out twice and feel like I'm having no luck. However at the last minute I came across this. I am really not sure if it's just rock or something more. Since I am completely new at this hoping someone can help me. Thanks in advance for any insight.
  18. Limpet fossil?

    Hello! Someone I know found this rock close to his house. The rock is very hard, can't make no scratch on it. I though it could be a fossil, like a limpet track or I don't know...? Does someone know what it is? Thank you! Fossile patelle?.pdf
  19. I tried to ID a fossil I found, but I had no success. I found it along the coast of the Bay of Fundy, close to Moncton, Canada. It says online that the area where the fossil was found is in the late Devonian - late Carboniferous period. Anybody have any idea what this fossil is?
  20. As above. After the silly Alioramus(?) locality mistake I made, I have taken on the colossal and necessary task of auditing all my locality info. Here's an area that has me stumped. Does anyone know if there's any late Cretaceous dino-bearing formations in Drumheller besides Horseshoe Canyon?
  21. Help identify possible shark tooth

    Hey everyone, I was hoping I could get your help in identifying what I think is a shark tooth? Embarrassingly enough it could just be a shell, but it looks an awful lot like a tooth to me. It's about 2" in length, if that helps, and I found it on the beach in Brackley, PEI. If it's a shark tooth, what shark does it belong to? And if it's not, what is it? If you have any ideas, I would love to know! It's really for curiosity's sake. Thank you! Here is the back-
