Prospecting

On Sunday the crew closed down he remaining quarries, collected all the bone we had exposed and turned our eyes to bigger and better prizes. That’s right, we headed out for four days of prospecting for new sites. We had located a new area to hunt for bone before coming out and drove out to have a look. We found bone almost immediately.

Returning the next day for a full day of prospecting with the full crew broken into teams. I love prospecting days, the air is tense with the anticipation of a great find around any given corner. It keeps you going during long days of climbing up and down treacherous hills in the heat. Today I did not have to anticipate for long. After only an hour of hunting I found an iguanodontian skull, and a big sucker at that. I busied myself with stabilizing the find and then went to look for Khai. Passing over the hill above me it looked as though a host of Dino’s had blown themselves up all over,the hillside above me, in almost 360 degrees. Alas, Suicide Hill was discovered. Photos to come.
