Return to Streetsville, Mississauga, Ontario

Recommended Posts

JUAN EMMANUEL

Yesterday the weather in my area hit above the 20 degrees Celsius so I dared myself to go to Streetsville in Mississauga to visit a fossil site I have not been to in 2 years. I now live in Hamilton, Ontario so travelling to Streetsville was intimidating for me using public transit from Hamilton to Streetsville.

I have not been to Streetsville by the Credit River ever since I moved from Etobicoke to Hamilton, Ontario and I miss collecting in this vicinity.

 

But I made it. :))

 

I took pics of exposure sites as these sites are mentioned in one of the literatures describing the Georgian Bay formation.

This site exposes the Georgian Bay formation, Upper Member.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Super pics and finds! 

I have several specimens from Etibicoke Creek and Mimico Creek, but the fauna where you were is very  different.

Love those corals and stromatoporoids but i'm most interested in the brachiopods, Holtedahlina and any others. :wub:

Any chance of a pic or two, please?

Great finds. Thanks for the photos. I'll bet the smallmouth bass fishing there is pretty good too.

Here are some of the specimens I decided to keep. 

Stromatocerium huronense sponge. Various growth forms.

Unfortunately, most of the Holtedahlinas are only fragmentary meaning whole specimens with the both valves present are hard to come by in my experience. So as a result I didn’t get to focus on those as much.

Yes this area seems like a popular fishing spot. At the day I was fossil hunting there, there were 3 fishing folks on the same side of the river bank as I was. 

It doesn’t seem like they’ve encountered a fossil hunter like me at this location before but they just let me go on with my own business.

i don't know, river looks ominous, treacherous in fact. Glad you are safe.

Good stuff! Many stromataporoids display mamelons (the bumps) on the surface as do some bryozoans.

What a tremendous thread...I'd love to visit there when the water levels are lower.

 

Great photographs!
