----We are hoping for a great 2019 field season. This year, we have over 10 ranches we will be prospecting. Each ranch we lease, we commit to fully hiking all deeded areas. This year, that will contain over 100,000 acres. Not all of those areas are fossil bearing, but a lot are. We start with the open exposure and then move to even the grassy areas that are within the fossil-rich layers. Time to strap on those hiking boots.
This season we will not only be conducting commercial fossil exploration, we also are assisting in some academic museum research from past finds in our areas, working on a mapping of the fossil-exposure layers within the Hell Creek Formation, and our first major artifact site in the badlands " The Pelican Lake project on Scorpion Ridge". Our plates are full for sure.
