Large deposit of dinosaur fossils found near the border

By M.ZOLJARGAL

Last week, border guards from the 0131 Border Military Unit found and secured a clearly visible deposit of dinosaur fossils at Nomgon soum of Umnugovi Province. Whether the fossils were above ground because of erosion from storms, or were intentionally dug out, has yet to be determined.

The border unit reported the finding of the fossils to the Institute of Paleontology (IP) at the Mongolian Academy of Sciences. With a permit from Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, IP experts will conduct an excavation of the site, as a great number of natural finds may be found in the area. Until then, the fossils will remain under the protection of Mongolian border guards.

Most of the dinosaur fossils in Mongolia have been discovered in Umnugovi Province.
