A couple weeks after our troubled October 28th trip, conditions improved and the people at PCS were kind enough to call us and let us know they had an immediate opening for 3 people. On short notice, Tom Bantel organized a quick trip and on November 18, we were able to enter the mine site. The Dry Dredgers are very fortunate to be included in this early reentry. Every time we are invited to the PCS mine to collect Lee Creek fossils, it's a privilege to be included in the allotment of people allowed to enter the Phosphate mine.

Here are some pictures that Tom Bantel took of the trip. Enjoy!
