Abstract

Dinosaur bones were discovered in 1971 during uranium exploration in the Sustut Basin, northern British Columbia, Canada. These bones have more recently been prepared and described and represent an indeterminate cerapodan dinosaur. Although dinosaur bones have been reported from British Columbia before now, this specimen represents their earliest recorded discovery from the province. The bones were collected from loose blocks in a talus slope, near the intersection of Birdflat Creek and the Sustut River. They are encased in hard siltstone that shares characteristics with adjacent outcrops of the Upper Cretaceous Brothers Peak Formation. Bones collected include the right humerus, right radius, the distal portion of the right tibia and fibula, two right pedal phalanges, including two unguals, and several unidentifiable fragments.
