Test holes were carefully dug by hand to determine the vertical and lateral dimension of the fossiliferous unit in the Quarry. Subsequently, drill holes confirmed the suspicion that the bones do not extend very far beyond the confines of the metal buildings that now cover and protect the Quarry. The buildings are an absolute necessity to protect the exposed fossils from both vandalism, the harsh winter weather of east-central Utah, and theft.
