6/15/2020 - Slow on the updates, but we are on it. In the past few weeks, we have opened up one of our major sites for this season, JKrex2020! This was a major undertaking. We first hired a professional surveyor to come in and establish the legal line due to the proximity of public land. What an education for our group yet again. It was outstanding to see the surveyor use the early 1900's notes to find the original stone markers. Then using modern GPS equipment, draw the line within mm's! We put in posts to clearly mark the boundary to ensure we did not disturb any public land soil and habitat.
Next, we hired a large excavator to come in and remove the massive amount of overburden on the site. Roger just finished a few days ago, almost 8 days for dirt moving. We are now in the site finding and mapping elements. Follow this site under our "Current Projects" section.
While all that work was being done, we spent some time in a Channel Deposit where we located many spectacular individual fossils. We will be adding pictures of several of them soon. We may also be undertaking an Articulated Triceratops skeleton that a nearby rancher found a year ago, the site is looking very interesting!
