    No, this forum is referring to the Martin-Marietta owned Belgrade Mine in Jones Count, North Carolina.

    Made this when I finished my MS in 2014. I made a whole mess and gave them to folks before I left Ohio. I used to love little fossil craft projects!! #fossil

    The UMMP is currently closed amid the COVID-19 crisis and I am largely working from home. I’ve been scanning in old loan documentation for my students to transcribe remotely. Here is an example of a specimen loan invoice from 1964 of some brachiopods! #event #method

    Hi  all- sorry for the delay, I don’t believe it is from an invertebrate. Certainly it is not an echinoderm! Really interesting specimen, thank you for uploading so many images!

    I’m seeing that we have many new members of this group. Does anyone have any mammals fossils that they have found at the Belgrade mine from North Carolina?  If so, send me photos, or upload them to our EMUSEUM. I then can explain why they are interesting.

    • I’m here in Craven County, NC but turned down a chance to go into Belgrade. (Didn’t think there were mammals there.)

      • Oh yes, and they are very interesting–I study ancient mammals that lived on land. At Belgrade these include horses, carnivores, rodents, tiny deer-like mammals, peccary, giant pig-like mammals, and possibly rhino. These are otherwise found from other early Miocene (about 20 million years old) localities elsewhere in the US, including California,…[Read more]

    Hi all–given the fact that we met just this past Thursday, lets make today’s lab meeting at 10:40 optional. What this means is that I will connect then and if anyone wants to talk OK, but you do not have to–if you have other things to do.

    For those of you who are interested, we will again use the link below.…[Read more]

    • Sounds good, Bruce. I will probably not connect today, as we are still scrambling to get everything straightened out for the online transition of the bio lab.

    Hi Rene, this is from an invertebrate. It’s either the part of a hinge of a clam or part of the feeding apparatus (called aristotle’s lantern) of a sea urchin. I’m sure with some photos from different angles, we could say which of the two it is.

    @jbauer do you agree / can you tell which it is?

    • I’m happy to contribute-

    • I would love to help too!

    • Sounds like a great opportunity for all of use to collaborate and publish on the culmination of our individual projects! Moving forward, Victor and I discussed having a short meeting to strategize what each of our contributions would look like. This being said, would everyone have 30 minutes or so prior to or after our next Paleo Tutorial meeting…[Read more]
