  1. I plan to be in Tulsa next week and wondered if anybody could point me to some very easy fossil sites? (roadcuts, short walk, etc). I will be there for one afternoon with another amateur fossil hunter and hoped that we might be able to find something. Anything to peak our curiosity. We're from South Louisiana, so we don't have much to choose from down here. I've been to Mineral Wells and Lake Jacksboro. I had a blast at both sites, but we can't make it over there at this time. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Stephen
  2. Looking for a Kid Friendly Site in OK.

    I have absolutely zero background or experience in this field, but I do have a six year old who very much wants to partner his museum experiences with a "real" fossil dig. He understands that our findings may be meager, so anything would be great. We are in central OK between OKC and Tulsa and have time for a day trip either tomorrow or Sunday. Any recommendations you can offer are greatly appreciated!
  3. Hello, I am nearing the end of my stay in Tulsa this summer and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good outcrop locations to go collecting at? I found one shale outcrop near Keystone Dam but I haven't been fortunate in finding anything else in the area - there just seems to not be enough relief and vegetation grows too quickly. I'm not looking for anything in particular, but teeth, trilobites, cephalopods, and brachiopods would be pretty neat. The river is running extremely high (still) and I don't see any places that I could walk the sand bars looking for artifacts and Pleistocene fossils. I would also like to stay within about a 10-20-mile radius of Tulsa, as my trips to the outcrops will only happen after work in the afternoon. Thanks for your help!
  4. Placoderm?

    Well, without going into a lengthy explanation, yes, I found this in the Arkansas River about 3 feet under the bottom rocks and what we call the NTS (Nasty Toxic ..., unfortunately my rock hound playground is also a delisted superfund site). It took months to finally get it to where it's at now. About half a year in fact of fervent brushing and gentle filing with a diamond coated pen file. Acid has also played a major role but I'm at the point now where I can't risk using more lest I melt what I'm trying to reveal. Is there any readily available household remedy I can use as a protectant of sorts that I could apply on the delicate fossil material so that I can submerge this thing back into acid? Also, would Thyiglycolic acid benefit me here in this scenario? Thanks ~Noah Benzing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn1uSydlkzQ Here is a view of the underside.... I'm getting close to revealing the actual teeth (although I have unfortunately destroyed one or two so far).
  5. Hello Fossil Forum!, I'm new here so I guess I'll just throw this one out. Found in Sand Springs (just outside of Tulsa, Northeastern Oklahoma) on the ancient Arkansas River (Mississippian/Pennsylvanian). http://www.ogs.ou.edu/StatemapOGQ/OGQ-79_Sand_Springs_24K.pdf I've been gradually exposing whatever these things are using light applications of heavily diluted muratic/hydrochloric acid and dishwashing soap gently lathered-in with a soft toothbrush. It's taken quite some time to get it to this phase of the "preparation"... but I'm curious, I'm seeing more than just one type of organism present on this piece. Could someone perhaps enlighten me with a dose of comprehensively accurate insight? I would be ever grateful as I value your thoughts. ~Noah Benzing
  6. After feeling inspired be Missourian's amazing thread "Backyard Trip" and while not wanting to let everything I've learned about the Tulsa area go to waste when I move, I wanted to make a thread sharing my knowledge for the benefit of everyone in the area and anyone who might come through the area. I decided that I will not post specific locations in most situations to prevent over hunting and damage to the sites, but I will give most of the locations over PM ( if they were given to me by a friend, I'll let you know who to contact, but it is their site so it's not mine to give away). I will try to give details on the areas, formations present, fossils found there and provide pictures where I can. There are also a number of rumored location I've never had a chance to visit, so I'll try and give information on those too. My time will be sporadically available, so I'll be updating when I can. For the first post I wanted to provide quick links to some of the documentation available in the area. The main source is from the Oklahoma Geologic Survey. Some of the written material is old, outdated, or incomplete, but it is a great place to start. Their documents can be found here: http://www.ogs.ou.edu/pubs.php And most of their maps (which are up to date and excellent where available) here: http://www.ogs.ou.edu/geolmapping.php Another site with some good information can be found here (information spans multiple states and hasn't been updated for years): http://www.bluesinheaven.com/pgs/paleo/index.html Unfortunately, I haven't found any good books on the area to list.
