Wanna see what $10,000 worth of trilobites looks like?
A newly-prepped piece saved from a gravel quarry near Kingston. We had three hours of daylight to salvage what we could from this kill zone. This is one of about half-a-dozen slabs that were pulled from a blast pile. There had to be much, much more, but the next day, a Monday, the pile went into the crusher and is now likely part of the road bed of Highway 401.
