      It wasn’t just the dinosaurs which became extinct 65 million years ago. Ammonites, a pre-historic type of marine mollusc, had a vast existence of more than million years. They from the Devonian period to the end of the Cretaceous system, when they became extinct around the same time as the dinosaurs. Now their history is stamped all over the earth in the form of some fascinating fossils. The Late Cretaceous Nanaimo Group of the Gulf Islands consists of a thick (> m) succession of siliciclastic slope-fan deposits that accumulated in the foreland basin setting of the Strait of Georgia during encroachment of Vancouver Island to the mainland of British Columbia (Mustard, ). Well-exposed successions of channel-levee.

Previous to the Cretaceous, ammonites typically were compact, coiled, outward spiralling discs with each spiral built upon and touching the previous spiral (known as planispiral coils).

During the Cretaceous, these regularly coiled ammonites declined as the suborder of ammonite known as Ancyloceratina exploded onto. Abstract.

The geology of British Columbia is a function of its location on the leading edge of the North American mountainous physiography and the diversity of rock types and ages hint at the complex geology, which is still undergoing revision despite a century of exploration and mapping.

The country's most prominent geological features are mountain ranges, including the North American. Benson Creek Falls Regional Park's Ammonite Falls is one of three significant waterfalls in a series of canyons sliced deeply into the thick loam and sedimentary bedrock of Mount Benson's foothills.

A variety of oceanic fossils can be found in a vast number of concretions that can be broken open to reveal the imprint of ancient life. One of the classic Vancouver Island fossil localities is the Santonian-Maastrichtian, Upper Cretaceous Haslam Formation Motocross Pit near Brannen Lake, Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada.

The quarry is no longer active as such though there is an active gravel quarry a little way down the road closer to Ammonite falls near Benson Creek Falls. US And Canadian Fossil Sites -- Data for BRITISH COLUMBIA.
