Aurora, NC

a.k.a. PCS Phosphate Mine or Lee Creek

This Pliocene period locality has yielded unbelievable quantities of fossil sharks teeth. Size, color and pristine preservation separate these from teeth you might find anywhere else. These teeth along with other fossils of whales, dolphins, seals, birds, and countless shells has made this a favorite site for over 25 years in the DVPS.
