I went up to the UP this week doing mostly sightseeing with my friends. They were aware of my predilection for rockhounding so we often made stops to areas that might bear good fossils/agates. In particular I knew there were some 'lagerstatten' in the Stonington Peninsula region of the UP. The most important formation I know of is the 'Big Hill formation' (correct me if I'm wrong). Some links about it here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/308005515_A_new_Lagerstatte_from_the_Late_Ordovician_Big_Hill_Formation_Upper_Peninsula_Michigan https://www.ncbi.
So with the lockdown and all we’re finally moving all the boxes still at the parents over to here.. well..we no longer have a useable carport.. Going to go through then over the weekend and sort the junk from the keeps. Should greatly reduce what’s there by the time we’re done (used to pick up every fragment, a bit more refined now.) They’re stacked 2-3 deep in places in this picture. @Jesuslover340 we’re in for a very long weekend, ha!
I am new to this and have a vacation coming in Summerville, SC. How do I choose where to start looking? Are there any recommendations for this area. What are the best tools to take on your first time out? Thank you for your input!!
