Syncrude says it’s found two more fossils at its north mine.
The company says the fossils are marine reptiles called elasmosaurs; between 112 and 114 million years old.
The first was found May 7 and another on the 11th.
The fossils are 70 to 80 percent complete and one has a partial skull, making it a very significant find.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller will be preparing the fossils for display.
