Description
Early post glacial shells from the time when the ocean rushed into the Kitimat Valley to the 700 level. Shells are from Mickey's Cove (Moon Bay) South Northern Dock. The shells were exposed by the April 27, 1975 land-sea slide at Mickey's Cove, where "Rivtow Straits" had worked on new docking facilities. The slide started in the bush higher up and the shell slid down with it, indicating same as at Rod and Gun Club, that the sea level was much higher pretty recently. The shells are not fossilized. Jingle shells (Pododesmus) 76-28-1 & -2, Small seallop (Chlamys) 76-28-3, Small Clam 76-28-4 & -5, Tube Worm 76-28-6, Clam 76-28-7 & 8, Clams 76-28-9 to -13 18 vials, some numbered, some not.
