Tennessee fossil sites
When I returned to fossil hunting after moving to TN from Il, I found this useful. However, check online the for the actual formation as their info is wrong or out of date in some cases. Case in point, the location in White county is listed as the Signal Point formation - however, the USGS automated map doesn't even show that formation anywhere near there.
Here's a link to the automated USGS map. Just click on the color in your area and it will tell you the formation (including prevalent rock types, thickness, etc.) The bad - they don't show roads (they do shoe towns though.)
I checked the Tennessee Fossil site and saw the following listing
Darks Mill Maury TN 1 km N on W side Carter Creek Rd in phosphate pit Pleistocene good vertebrates TN0067 | , Darks Mill Maury TN On W side of Carter Creek Road in a phosphate pit Chelonia (Turtle),Mammuthus,Megalonyx TN0068
After several hours of research I still can not find the location they listed. How ever there were many phosphate pits in the area which was once heavily mined. There is a Darks Mill Road and a Carters Creek Pike which intersect each other, after checking google maps, no pits to be seen.
I know that you stated in your post that some of the information posted on the web site was inaccurate but it would be cool to find this vertebrate rich plicetocene fossil trove right? I figure with a little collective home work we could find this place any body interested?
