The dig program for the museum has been put on hold for a short time while we interviewed for the Director of Education position. However we did squeeze one day in. We went out to the Price River Two PR2 quarries, one of our old standbys. We had been excavating at this quarry since 1993 and it has yielded seven brachiosaurs and three armored dinosaurs plus some material we haven’t been able to identify yet.
Wednesday, we had a crew of five and began uncovering the quarry. The overburden around the quarry is quite high and weathers down over the site and quite a bit of weathering had happened since our last visit, but we had a good crew and we were able to get down to the bones. The surface material was powder dry but about a foot under the surface we ran into some mud. The bones are in good condition, as far as PR2 is concerned. We soon ran out of time and we covered the bones back up for protection and headed back to Price and hoped to be able to return next week. This particular quarry has been continuing to produce, it seems that some things are worth putting up with bugs, heat and dust for.
