• coordinate stated in text
• outcrop-level geographic resolution

• Eberth lists this as one of the vertebrate micro fossil sites from the Judith River, but does not give a meter mark for the site. (Microvertebrate sites of Brinkman (1990) are "...placed in stratigraphic sequence by reference to a disconformity located about sixty meters below the base of the Lethbridge Coal (Eberth, 1990). BB 88 is not mentioned in Brinkman (1990), but a detailed geologic description is given for the site, including mention of microvertebrates, see below.
