Field Trip Report February 2010 Cadiz by Jimmy Peterson The February field trip to Cadiz and the Marble mountains went extremely well. We had a great turn out and everyone went home with some nice pieces. Saturday morning we went to Marble mountains where small red garnets, hematite, and massive green and yellow-brown epidote were found. On Saturday afternoon we went to the trilobite quarry where we all found some nice cambrian era trilobites including Jimmy's spectacular *complete* Olenellus Fremonti with both positive and negative slabs and a bonus brachiopod. All of the cephalon, thorax, and pygidium were clearly visible as well as several spines - a true museum piece. Then on Sunday we drove over to Siam Siding where we found some nice pieces of chapenite (brecciated jasper). Herb was the one that found the most, using his probing technique in a hole started weeks earlier. However, it was Adrian, the digging machine, who help Herb get down to the good stuff. Overall it was another great Searcher's field trip.
