<< This is very odd. I'm not familiar with the time frames all that well, but 
 Jepsen was also a rancher in the vicinity of Rapid City and was associated 
 with the School of Mines there. He finished his career here in Princeton. In 
 the proper places, especially the western drainages of the Black Hills in 
 Wyoming the Lance is rather rich in Late Cretaceous mammal teeth. This is 
 where J.B.Hatcher discovered the utility of anthills. Perhaps Jepsen is 
 describing a lack of mammals in Hell Creek deposits in Montana? Dan Varner. 

All these responses are very interesting, but the question being addressed is 
where in the world is there a K-T boundary sequence with dinosaur fossils 
below the boundary and no dinosaur fossils, only mammals, above it. Whether 
or not there are mammals along with the dinosaurs below the K-T boundary is 
not important.
