I will put up part of the story on my blogspot: Silver discovered near America's oldest silver mine... however, it won't be complete detail... but, if and when I give any lecture on the Olenellus bedding in York, I will let people here know about it in advance should anyone live close enough to come.

I will make a point to call you in the Spring for a visit. Love that Lower Cambrian fauna, especially the ones with eyes.

Cabin fever is brewing and so is the cold weather. It's a stand off.

Wonderful news! We so often hear of sites being lost, nice that some get found.

Since I last posted I have found quite a few more Kinzers creatures...Maybe 150 more Olenellus Thompsonai, Paedeumias, Wannerias included...Also a Tuzoia polloni...First one of this species in PA...And possibly a new soft coral which is at Harvard now...

Mighty fine specimens! What a story. Quite interesting to see the different types of preservation/mineralization. Wow I miss being up there. 

 

Thanks for updating the post and showing us your finds! Regards, Chris

Jackpot!

Very nice. Is that the Tuzoia between the 2 trilos above?

I'd like to see more of those more obscure items as well as the trilos, if you have them.

Wish I lived close enough or could travel to visit the site.
