quarry again.>

  By testing, they will go to the site to determine the neccessity of new
quarrying. That means sampling, some "test" digs, etc. If it pans out, as
in testing a stream for gold, they will set up shop and begin excavating
again. It would be very nice to apply new techniques to these "diseased"
bones and restore them better than those mounted in Bernisartt today;
perhaps even work on more than crocs and iggies...

Ok, that makes sense, hope it pans out.

I thought they were going to give the site a written test...:)
