Hi Dave,

Thanks for putting this together!

I had an opportunity to collect the Linton site around ten years ago. I only had a short period of time and did not find much.

Not sure if the area is still accessible but I hope to make it back someday.

Last wk I was looking for additional places to fossil hunt in Ohio and came across articles on the linton Diamond coal mine and was wondering if I could still get into the area? On google it looks like just a open area with open access. Would it be worth the trip?

I like your informative PDF on your experience there.

ps. Glad you joined the group and brought your knowledge to share with us. :)

I was in that area just yesterday. I do not know the exact location you need for finding fossils but I had to be within 1/4 mile of the mine opening. One area has a lot of rock debris piles and the other coal fines and small chucks. It is accessible by dirt bike or vehicle with decent bottom clearance (not a regular car, possibly not even a small SUV such as Honada CRV), but we parked where the road became impassable by car and walked to both areas. I have no idea what to look for in regards to finding fossils but the area is definitely accessible without much trouble. Probably be easier when all the leaves are off the tree if yu want to find the mine opening which I imagine is boarded up.

The last few days have been unseasonably high temps in New York. It was a good time to split some Linton Cannel coal. Well I found a nice Microhaplolepis sp. right at the Conchostracans mass mortality layer.

Very nice find from there, great detail.

I am hoping to get out there in the early spring before everything gets overgrown.
