Not seeing a mollusc here... Perhaps some location information will help. It might be coral.

Could be a stromatoporoid.

that was my second guess..most of my other finds are coral

The best I can do with location is South East Saskatchewan close to the US border, Hunting in a large valley, Qu'appelle valley to be exact. Part of the Hudson Seaway when in covered most of North America

I agree with Tarquin, it could be a stromatoporoid.
