North Dakota Fossils; A Developing Guide

Recommended Posts

PetrolPete

Hey everyone, I got back to Williston a couple weeks ago and finally have internet. I thought I'd continue the tradition of my Tulsa area guide and start a topic for all the research I do and findings I make while living here, only this time it will be growing as I go. As an end result, this topic will hopefully help people with fossil hunting in North Dakota. If anyone has any input feel free to add it.

For starters:

The North Dakota surface geology map can be found here:http://ngmdb.usgs.gov/Prodesc/proddesc_16520.htm

This map is also uploaded into a free computer application called geomap app which you can use to pull GPS coordinates off the map.

The state geologic survey page is found here: https://www.dmr.nd.gov/ndgs/

They are in the works of redoing the surface map, but you can find the new quadrangle maps as they are updated here:https://www.dmr.nd.gov/ndgs/surfacegeo/surfacemapsnew.asp

The state laws for collecting fossils can be found here: https://www.dmr.nd.gov/ndgs/paleoregs/Paleoregnew.asp

Apparently, time to time, there are state sponsored professional fossil digs you can pay to attend. They are listed and updated here: https://www.dmr.nd.gov/ndfossil/digs/digs.asp

The next hunt is in a couple weeks. I was hoping to attend but I don't think I'll be able to make it at this point.
