Gore Oklahoma, Saturday, April 8th.
We will meet at the Hart's Grocery Store on US 10 in downtown Gore at 9:00 am. Gore is about 4 hours north of Dallas, take the Weber Falls exit off of 40. It will put you on US 10. Harts is a few miles north on the left. The quarry is Pennsylvanian Age, Morrowan Stage. This is the very earliest Pennsylvanian. What will you find? Blastoids (the real attraction at this quarry) also occasional crinoids, paleozoic shark teeth, brachiopods, corals and other invertebrates.
What to bring? Rock hammer, chisel(?), collection containers, knee pads are recommended for crawling some of the finer gravel areas. Also an insect repellant might come in handy and of course bring water and snacks.
Time permitting, for those interested, we will also visit the road cut outside Lequire Oklahoma to hunt for Pennsylvanian age plant material.
Contact: Pollym@airmail.net, cell 903 916-0083. Please be on time because I must lead you into the quarry. If for some reason you will be a few minutes late call my cell and I'll arrange to meet up with you.
