Discovery of a Lifetime

On June 7, 2018 NTS Geotechnical Instrumentation Technician Scott Fisher made the discovery of a lifetime. Amongst the rocks of the North Mine at Syncrude Canada, he found the fossil remains of a plesiosaur, a marine reptile that lived during the Mesozoic era. A team of experts from the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller came to the site, extracted the fossils and transported them to the museum where they will spend the next 2-3 years analyzing the remains.

“This discovery has been very exciting for myself and my family,” says Scott. “It has been quite the experience to be part of Syncrude history in this way.”

The NTS family is excited too!
