Some recent news and blog items:

Interview with Heinrich Mallison at Tristan T. rex site in Montana (on
private land) (in German)

Found so far:

Dead T. rex buried when a river overflowed its banks and before body
could be scavenged, leaving bones relatively undamaged

Almost no remains of other animals found so far at the site (other
than crocodile teeth, fish scales), except piece of a Triceratops, and
fossil wood

Boring planned to check magnetic reversal signatures in the rocks
