Our Full-Service Fossil Collecting Package
Our main operations are based on a full-service package. When we lease a property, we provide all services from prospecting to selling the fossils. Landowners have no costs/fees with this package, instead we offer landowners a percentage of sales. In our experience this creates more revenue for the landowner than just paying for a lease upfront.
Fossil Preparation & National/International Sales
We normally only prepare fossils our group collects. However, on rare occasions we may consider offering a preparation and/or mounting service. Please contact us for more information.
We usually conduct all sales through a broker. We do not offer individual small fossil sales online. If you have an interest in a large specimen project featured on our site, you can contact us for more information. We normally provide clients with a Specimen Prospectus for a project of interest, but the actual sales will go through our broker.
If your institution is interested in one of our projects, please let us know. Also, if there is a specific specimen you are looking for from Montana, we can keep you on a list and notify you if we find something that fits your needs.
Our fossil identification service is free to landowners.
This service is available only for landowners that have discovered a specimen and are unsure of its identification. If you would like us to help identify a fossil find, send us an email through our "Contact Us" page with "MT Fossil I.D." in the subject line. Please include the following information.
