Construction workers in Brisbane have unearthed animal and plant fossils believed to be about 50 million years old.
The fossils were contained in a layer of oil shale more than 15 metres underground at Geebung on Brisbane’s northside.
The surprise discovery was brought to the surface by a piling rig last month during building excavation works.
